Initial experience is positive. AI checklist-driven procedures appear effective and I have taken off and descended using them. The newly-installed DME display will greatly assist VOR navigation. Only issue I have is that a QANTAS livery which was visible with the previous version is no longer so. I suspect this is due to the updated paintkit so I am confidant someone will create a new one soon.

Thanks for the report. Are you able to see an upgrade to the textures?

IMO that’s one of the big lacking places (compared to, say, the DC-6) but I’ve seen the devs mention upgrading both interior and exterior so I’m hopeful it will get up to that next-gen level

Textures are great, inside and out. Metallic reflections on the external model, especially the Air France livery, are very realistic and up to the standard I had hoped for.

Will the textures in the passenger room also be updated? That would be swell. At the moment this part looks a bit shabby in my view.

not sure but 3d inside is mentioned on their page

Loved the preview of 1.8 :wink: L-1049 REDWING UPDATE 1.8 - YouTube

This video not only shows cool stuff but is also quite funny. It reminds me of the trailers for “My Summer Car” :smiley:
