Today I fly the C207 from Brookings Airport to North Bend which is along the Southwest Oregon coastline. Rather that use the GPS we look at flying a basic plan using VOR navigation and then load the procedure to take us in for an ILS landing on runway 04 using the Garmin 530.
Yesterday I bought my first PMDG product the Boeing 737NGX. I wasn’t entirely sure if I wanted the Prepar3d version or the FSX version but in the end went with P3D because it has a development roadmap and FSX doesn’t. Today I’m spending a bit of time doing the starting tutorials and there’s a lot of nice detail within the documentation that explains what things do which is awesome.
Initially I seemed to have very poor frame rates but after some tweaking of the settings it around an acceptable 25+ frames after I set the frame rates to unlimited in the settings. It really is a nicely developed aircraft and I can see why the FSX community loves PMDG but I have to admit, I wish I had this aircraft in X-Plane instead of P3D.
In this episode I look at the DHC-6 Twin Otter by RWDesigns for X-Plane 10. We take the tutorial flight that comes with the documentation starting at GCXO Tenerife North and enjoy the ocean and island views before landing at GCHI. El Hierro Airport.
