CS L1011 in 2021?

I'm thinking about getting the Captainsim L1011.
I really like "oldish" planes like the 747-200. And I love the Tristar since my Childhood. I dont know why but it has a special place in my heart. And the Screenshots on the product Page look amazing!
But then there are the negative things. The biggest thing that keeps me away from buying the Tristar ist that it's not so polular. For example the another company 777 oder the FSlabs a320- everyone knows them, everyone can help, ....- I literally don't know anyone who has the L1011. So my fear is- if something doesn't work, will someone be able to help me?
So I ask you, L1011 Pilots, is the Plane worth getting in late 2021? What should I be aware of?

Hello, I got the 1011 yesterday and have done a couple of flights on it. I love it. Haven't had any major issues, would highly recommend installing the vOne gauges to get you speeds and the like.

An awesome addon, pity that CS has gone down hill since Cheesy

Worth the money. I bought it for P3Dv2 back in the day and just bought the v4/v5 version a couple of days ago (thank God for the huge promotion as CS doesn't make discounts for previous users). Didn't fly it on a daily basis, but it's a great plane to fly. Not on the same level as FSLabs or another company, but certainly comparable to the another company Airbuses or another company 787.
I asure you won't be disapointed, as long as you keep in mind it's not on the same level as FSL or another company.

Like L1011 but there are issues stopping me from flying:
1. INS - it is not ins but gps dressed with ins skin
2. default ground fiction coefficient in use - very unrealistic ground roll
3. no TO/GA, CLB, CRZ thrust modes
4. dummy systems - hydraulic, pressurization
5. default engine start up logic
6. heavy on fps - at least on my system
7. no windshield effects
8. low quality sound set - personal opinion here

Agree with the most. I also got it on the 10$ sale and I really like it. Bit like 'Beardyman' said, it has a few issues. The Fps are acceptable but with the TSS soundpack it's really nice

Finally an honest (non fanboy) opinion, by the way, it has a lot more bugs and absurdities, but I already disembarked this boat, here's a warning for the unwary.

Do you have a revised flight model you'd be willing to share? I'd enjoy fixed startup logic and ground friction.

Avid P3D CS 757 and 767 flyer here. I just tried the L-1011 now from the saved original CS flight with ready to take-off state as I have yet to understand how to poer on that thing. Fuel was 100% and no payload so quite light. After rotation nose up around 15° and after 1000 ft AGL slight reduction of power and flaps retraction etc. After slats up I notice the plane DESCENDING while still flying like 250 kts with about 10-15° ANU ??  Sorry for me that's the real killer about this aircraft. I don't mind about little bugs here and there but totally unrealistic fligh model is about the only real put-off for me. I'll still try to enjoy it but I seriously doubt I can.
