Qualitywings sieht die Zeit, um die Boeing 787 zu veröffentlichen, langsam gekommen. Deshalb einige Informationen zum Umfang und Preis vorab. Die PMDG Boeing 777-200 ist nun P3D V4 kompatibel. Die 300er braucht noch etwas Zeit. Flight-1 zeigt auf der FlightSimCon Bilder der Level-D 757. Weitere Informationen unter
Since our last progress update in February, some of you of may have seen our banner reading ‘Summer 2017’ instead of the dreaded ‘Coming Soon’. The QW787 has been in beta testing for a little bit more than six months and we’re lucky to have a beta team that is knowledgable, diverse, dedicated and very passionate at what they do…in other words they drive us crazy (which is a good thing)! The beta team has helped us resolve more than 600 reported issues during testing and the result is a product we feel is close to release. With that in mind we are excited to disclose information about the intitial release and pricing.
Product scopeInitial release is expected to include the Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 with GEnx and Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine variants. Both variants come with completely custom flight dynamics, properly simulated FADEC and engine characteristics as well as complete soundsets true to their real life counterparts. A lot of time and attention has been spent to make you actually see, feel and hear like you’re flying a Trent or a GEnx. Differences between the two variants include:
- Adapted weights and thrust ratings
- Full Trent and GEnx sound
- Hand flying characteristics unique to the -8 and -9
- Simulation of the hybrid laminar-flow control (HLFC) system
- Additional flap settings and modified main landing gear unique to the -9. While we don’t anticipate any issues with the 787-9, testing on that model is behind the -8 and we won’t delay the release for the -9. In this case, the -9 would be delivered as a free update after the initial release.
The Ultimate 787 Collection will be available for: Microsoft Flight Simulator X / FSX Steam Edition and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v4. Initially the product will only be released for FSX.
The price for each platform will be 69.95 USD.The product will be sold separately for FSX and P3D.Buying the product for FSX will not guarantee operation in P3D and vice versa.Like the Ultimate 146 Collection, Flight1 will be used for distribution which includes a 30 day refund policy. Thanks for your continued interest in the QW787 and your patience during the development cycle. We look forward to meeting all those attending FlightSimCon 2017 and additional events in the future.

A few moments ago, we published our first x64 update to the PMDG 777-200LR/F, the first of a couple updates coming to the 777 product line.
This updates the 777 within our Prepar3D product line so that you can use it in either Prepar3D v3 or Prepar3D v4.
THESE NOTES ARE IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ THEM:
This is a complete product and installer rebuild, thus requiring that you download the entire (nearly) 900MB installer anew from your PMDG eCommerce account. I will include the installation instructions a bit lower down for those who need them.
As of this version, we are still awaiting a x64 compatible RAAS module from Bryan York at JetExpress/FS2Crew. He will provide it to us when it is ready, and we will push it to you via a microupdate a bit later on. RAAS works normally in P3D v3, but it does NOT work in P3D v4.
Saved flights are not currently portable between our 32bit FSX/FSX-SE/P3Dv3 offerings and the P3D v4 product line. We are looking to address this for a future update, so for now do not attempt to move saved flights back and forth between 32 and 64 bit product lines and you won’t have any problems.
It is important also to point out that we have disabled the ability to use FSUIPC to connect the 777 to Squawkbox/IVAP while we work through some compatibility issues that create problems for the operation of the airplane for some users. This disablement is expected to be temporary.
Other than these warnings, you should find that the Prepar3D v4 edition of the 777 is a much smoother operating product thanks in part to the advancements Lockheed Martin has achieved with their simulation platform.

Click on the download link, and await the download of the 777-200LR/F.
If you have the Prepar3D v3 version of the 777 currently installed, uninstall it now. (Yes, you must.)
Run your new installer. If you have only one version of Prepar3D installed, it will offer to install for that version. If you have both Prepar3D v3 and Prepar3D v4 installed, it will offer you the option to choose which version(s) you would like to install.
Complete the installation.
The Operations center will update itself at the conclusion of the installation, and then it will run and offer you the ability to repair your livery installations.
The ship is now yours, Captain- go have fun!
Quick note for FSX/FSX-SE users: We will be pushing an update to bring the FSX version of this product up to a matching standard with the Prepar3D v3/v4 version, but it might be a day or two as we are a bit overwhelmed with all of the moving pieces we have on our hands this weekend… Stay tuned to the Operations Center for your update!
Also, in case anyone asks:
The 300ER has some odd issues in v4 currently related to the ground movement camera system that weren’t there in v3. We’re trying to get LM to take a look at it and fix. As soon as that’s resolved we’ll release it for v4.
AEROSOFT-CD/DVD & DOWNLOAD CUSTOMERS We completed this update on Saturday morning, 10JUN17. It will take a few days for us to get all of the necessary pieces to Aerosfot so that they may update their own DVD and Download customers. We apologize for the inconvenience, but this update is simply too comprehensive to be bundled into a micro-update for instant installation. We anticipate having all of the pieces to Aerosoft for their distribution on 15JUN17.
Level-D, ja Level-D mit der 767, haben still und heimlich das 757 Projekt fortgesetzt welche vor sehr langer Zeit schon mal im Raum stand. Insgesamt ist die Maschine wohl zu 80% fertiggestellt und befindet sich aktuell im Beta Testing. Weitere Informationen folgen.
