Editorial

Having decided that I wanted to mess around with a MD-11 for the first time in a while, I saw this. Waiting on a package from FedEx, it felt like a sign. So, I picked up the full package and installed this MD-11F setup.

What I immediately noticed upon installation and loading was just how detailed the textures were. Many times you can use an add-on like this, and the writing on a comparatively simple livery like FedEx would look cheap and blurred. This had no such issues, though, instead providing a clear and finished looking design on the livery.

Again, the livery for FedEx is hardly blow your mind stuff. However, even the little things can easily be ruined and it’s good to see that developers have taken the time to ensure the text is neat. This stands up well against the default and other professionally created versions, for sure.

Operation of the aircraft is also extremely easy to make use of. It’s intensive level of detail throughout the cockpit can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it does not take too long to get used to. Overall, it flies in much the same way as many other MD aircraft – a little challenging, but vastly powerful. The reward, though, is a wonderfully powerful aircraft that has so many options to pick from.

The Complete Package

Since this is the full package, you don’t need to do anything else once you download it. Just follow the basic instruction options and put each of the corresponding folders where they should be. It really is that simple to use – everything you need is included to make flying this aircraft as simple as it can be.

Remember to turn on the tool tips by the way; the cockpit is a little overwhelming at first without one. With that said, though, you can then use the tool tips to start making use of all of the added functions that this has included. From the landing gears to the PDF, MFD and EICAS screens you have plenty of access to main cockpit functions on screen.

I found this to be very easy to fly and manage as a consequence. The attention to detail goes a long way to ensuring that this is an aircraft which is a fair amount of fun to fly. After enough messing around to deliver about a hundred packages, I can tell you this rendition of a popular aircraft is awesome!
