Has anyone here purchased and flown the PMDG DC-6? I have a serious craving for this aircraft but wanted some experienced opinions before I purchase it...I have never paid as much for any simulator add-on and sure would appreciate any advice given! Thanks...

Hi Steve,

First and foremost, kudos for considering the PMDG DC-6 for your simulation experience! It's a decision you likely won't regret, and I'm thrilled to provide some insights to assist you.

Fidelity: PMDG DC-6 comes with unmatched fidelity (a term referring to the realism and accuracy of simulation). From the authentic sound effects to the intricacy of the cockpit design, it is all remarkably true to life. Each knob, switch, and lever operates as it would in the actual aircraft, down to the last detail.

Flight Dynamics: The flight dynamics (meaning the response of the aircraft to its controls and external factors) of the PMDG DC-6 is a game-changer. Each takeoff and landing feel unique, delivering a rich and immersive flying experience.

Documentation: The PMDG DC-6 comes packed with extensive documentation, including a detailed manual and tutorial. These are invaluable resources for getting to grips with the complex systems of this classic airliner.

The learning curve for the PMDG DC-6 is indeed steep, but that's where the thrill lies for most flight sim enthusiasts. This isn't just a plug-and-play add-on; it's a fully fledged simulation that will challenge you and, ultimately, reward you for your time and effort.

While the price tag might seem steep at first glance, the PMDG DC-6 provides an unparalleled flight sim experience that justifies the cost. If you're passionate about flight simulation and are eager for a challenge that mirrors real-world flying, this add-on is a great investment.

To get the best out of the PMDG DC-6, I would recommend a decently powerful system. An up-to-date PC setup will help you fully appreciate the detailed graphics and complex systems without performance issues.

From my knowledge, many simmers have hailed the PMDG DC-6 as a landmark release in the world of flight simulation, and I wholeheartedly concur with that sentiment.

Remember, it's always about the journey, not the destination. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy every moment with your soon-to-be new aircraft.

Happy flying.
