Thinking of making an addon purchase. I'm torn between the CaptainSim Legendary 727 Pro and the PMDG 737NG. Can anyone give me some feedback on what they think is the better purchase? Thanks for any help.

Hey Suds...I am from MA too..Quincy..I know a few kids from Foxboro...anyways,..i know that captain sim planes are great....but the PMDG seems like a better choice...maybe not for FPS though.

Suds,

How about adding the Dreamfleet 727 into the equasion of your decision making?? -Here is the link if you want to ck. it out. -Just released & great FPS by all accounts! -Also reasonably priced, many liveries and paint kit included.

I can only tell you that the CS 727 will not disappoint you. I have flown it around the globe twice and still love it.

I don't think that I am going to spend 25 bucks on one plane when I got the sim (new sim) for only ten dollars!

....yeah but the planes that you get for $25 are in a very different league to any of the planes that come with the standard FS !

Suds - I would recommend doing a search of this forum on both planes - there are dozens of postings and discussions on both.

Basically, both are FAB so you can't go wrong...... One is an old classic plane that's more about the hand flying, and one is an ultra modern plane with all the latest technology.

So it just really depends what you fancy out of these two.... Wink

Thanks for the input guys.
OG, I was checking out the Dreamfleet version also, looks good too!
Unfortunately, the company I work for is in the process of closing, so I'll probably be going on unemployment. Looks like I'll have to stick with freeware for the time being. I just dl'd the Fokker 10070 v.2. Going to give that a whirl for a while.
Thanks again...

Hi,

It depends what you're looking for... The 737-6-7-8-900 are very new airplanes with top systems, while the 727 is becoming pretty old.
Speaking how well the aircrafts are simulated in FS9, I only own the 737, and I am not disappointed at all. I would recommend it. I have heard lots of good things about the level-d 767 also, then if you don't mind a long range airliner it might be good too Smile

Surprised

The CS 727 is great because it offers more working gauges than the PMDG, It has more animated features [sliding window] and you get a crew voice package.Thats quit a lot more than PMDG but it ends up beingm that PMDG is most likely more frame rate freindly and there is one thing for sure PMDG is not to frame rate freindly at all.
