Happy New Year! Here is to writing 2017 on everything for the next 3 months.
Woke up this morning to find that Captain Sim released the 757-200 base package for P3D v4! I slapped down my plastic and got me a copy.
Some of you who have P3D v4 know that there are practically NO aircraft outside the stock planes, PMDG, and recently FSLabs A320 out there. Like literally nothing (I've been searching). Even if you aren't a fan of the 757, it is hard not to be excited about some new variety.
After a very long download (I am sure their servers are screaming), the 221mb install file took about an hour to download. I updated the AIRAC data through Navigraph, and was on my way for a short hop.
Flight model is great. Handling is very responsive, a joy to fly. Being a typical man, I don't need no tutorials....but I will likely review them to learn the finer points. I was able to get right in and fly with my PMDG knowledge.
