Ohh yes! This is a must. +1 this!Not many of us out there with 16+ lever quadrants http://forum.avsim.n...tyle_emoticons/default/blum.gif
Is it possible to add simulations of new axis for FSX like is it in B-17G from A2A (with Accu sim) - all LEFT engines (first axis) and RIGHT engines (second axis). In this time all left - 2, right 2.

I doubt it, but we can only hope. Visually, the Stratocruiser is starting to show its age, and A2A have no new plans for an Airliner, at least as far as I know. It would be great if A2A did somehow make an accusim addon, because it is a bit disappointing that this will not have a failures model. Those radials are not nearly as consistent and reliable as the modern jets. And somebody will have to release a crew addon (not necessarily like A2A's COTS), because managing all of those positions is going to be difficult! I highly doubt this will happen though. The two products are meant to be in very different categories. But hey, lets face it, we are going to buy this DC6 no matter what, and we all know it will be amazing!
Considering the relationship between A2A and PMDG, perhaps a deal could be worked out where A2A could produce an Accusim module for the PMDG DC-6, similar to how VRS is going to release their TACPAC for other developers to utilize.

I believe this can be achieved with a registered copy of FSUIPC, if they don't do this. :)
Hi,This news gived me good day Today!I have a question about manegement of engines.I have 8 axis in my home cocpit - but for models with more than 2 prop engines is a problem (2 for thr, 2 for mixt and 2 for prop).Is it possible to add simulations of new axis for FSX like is it in B-17G from A2A (with Accu sim) - all LEFT engines (first axis) and RIGHT engines (second axis). In this time all left - 2, right 2.In this time You can operate all 6 axis. Its very important for good ground operations so please think about this before model will be released.

WOW!! A nice surprise. It's good to see a company (other than A2A) looking back at the classics. After all, would we even have the NGX, 777, or 747 without gems like these? I'll be ready to punch in the ole credit card numbers on day one of release, for sure! Now...speaking of classic birds (although not as "classic" maybe as the DC-6)...how about in the future the DC-9???Paul

This! If there ever was a project where sound would be nearly as important as the model itself it would be this one! Very excited for this! I can see myself now up in Alaska! Looks like it's coming along really nicely!
Being an old radial, I sure hope the sound pack gets extra attention. Looking forward to it.

My thoughts exactly, a PMDG CRJ would have been a must buy. I'm sure the Classics will be of very high quality, but I have no interest in flying them. Maybe the next secret project will be closer to my taste.
Man I am disappointed, I was hoping for a regional airliner like a quality ERJ or CRJ, or if not that, a re-make of the 747-400 to NGX standards. This is a blow.

Hey, PMDG Staff et alAs you've seen from some of these posts, AND as you already know, ya canne pleaze aal tha folk, all tha time.As some of you already know, it's been a major month for me... 1st my FSX PC gets nicked, shortly followed by finding a daughter I thought I'd lost 28 years ago!Now, I know you can't quite match that, you guys in office, but none the less, a PMDG DC6 rounds off January pretty nicely

Jeff-Great movie for airplane lovers... The acting and the script is a bit hokey- but the footage is good!Thats a DC-4 also. A real man's airplane. The DC-4 was where I learned the importance of flying the trimwheel. If you let the airplane operate out of trim, you'd wind up with a sore arm at the conclusion of the flight...
I now have to pull out my copy of the The High and The Mighty with John Wayne. Jeffg
