Editorial

As someone who has spent a lot of time in real life and in simulation flying around in the Boeing 787, I was quite excited to hear that someone had gone to the task of making a unique version of it for use with FSX. Naturally, I sped off to make the download and give you guys the lowdown on how it works, and I have to say that I was incredibly impressed it carries a whole range of features that are specific to the main thing, as well as ensuring that the attention to detail in the model was spot on.

The Aircraft Itself

The aircraft carried the Dreamliner colors, so if you are looking to fly a very specific – and popular – form of this aircraft, this is probably the place to get started. The attention to detail on the aircraft throughout is absolutely brilliant, ensuring that you can get the help that you need in making it work for you. Many mods can be a bit “too” confusing but this adds depth and detail without overwhelming anyone.

This will make it really easy for you to start controlling the aircraft and getting used to it, as it’s very easy to run and get around in. the actual aircraft itself is very detailed and very intricate, and I wanted to really test how close the simulation was to the real thing. I have to admit that I was very impressed with its closeness and the skill in detail that remains throughout.

This makes it very easy to control the aircraft and get used to its style and its nature, whilst also ensuring that you don’t get too lost within the cockpit – it’s fairly spacious and has a lot going on, but this is purely just because the developer managed to capture the aircraft and its characteristics more or less perfectly.

Flying the Dreamliner

As far as flying is concerned, this matches the real thing blow for blow. It’s easy to fly and it’s nimble, giving you plenty of control over the flight whereas some aircraft can perhaps feel a touch too rigid or not strong enough. This will remove these problems form the equation, and gives a really balanced performance; something that I was not really expecting but instead was more hoping for. This overall shape, design and style is just what is needed if you want to try out the 787 and see what you think yourself.

Again, I’ve spent a lot of time on these so I knew what I was looking for and what features I expected to be included, and missing. With the range of quality additions added in there such as Animated Ground Servicing, you’ll be enjoying a sleek and ambitious looking model that captures the real style of the aircraft in all of its glory.

For anyone who wants to try this out or has done in the past, this is a good place to get started; its realism is very impressive, providing an extremely high level of performance.

Rode in new 787 for IAH to LAX. Short takeoff and stops quicker on landing than all other buses. cannot get it to show in "X" inventory. Checked Boeing.

Very good plane but has the cockpit and sound of a CRJ-700. Still good to download. I like it.

The cockpit is that of the CRJ-700. Not worth your time. Anyone know where I can find the Boeing C-97 Statocruiser?
