Thank you Martyn for the update.  Hope your definition of "soon" is not the same as past definitions.  This is a great list that should make this great bird what she needs to be.  Mine has been sitting at Kai Tak airport (as the airport was in 1963) as Canadian Pacific Flight 402 (1962 Schedule) for almost a year waiting to get the next update so I could get her home.  Can't wait.

One question...I notice no mention of the fuel cross feed issues, as mentioned in that post.  Anything going to be done on that?

Thanks again for your update...hope to see more, and "soon" as things progress.
Garry

Yes, finally something from this thing that has been ignored for so long. I'm actually excited, and will not hesitate to re-purchase as soon as it comes out and is up to snuff.

Hi Garry,

The 10-40 pack work is nearly complete and the 50-70 pack isn't far behind, so 'soon' is days/weeks rather than months/years Thumbs Up

I've posted in the fuel cross-feed thread. Those issues are being looked into now.

Thanks
Martyn

I also wanna join in on the "thanks for the service pack".  Hopefully, the product now will reach up 
to its full potential. Looking forward to see how it all turns out.

Hi Garry,

Not much to add at this stage. A custom autopilot and fuel system are currently being added, and the manual is being updated to reflect all of the changes since the product's initial release.

Thanks

Any more news on the service pack for the 50-70 series? Here we are in April. I just bought this and quite frankly as is am unhappy with it. So many things needing fixing this far in is unacceptable. Last Aeroplane Heaven airplane I buy. Period. Shame I have several I really like but not this!

10-40 SP will be released within the next day or two.  The 50 to 70 will follow that.  Hopefully within the next week or so.  We hope that will sort the current issues but please if you're not happy, request your refund.  We'll be happy to oblige.

Once again, apologies for the delays in getting these latest SP's out to you all, reasons have been relayed in other threads and conversations. Glad to say we are getting somewhere now so normal service to be resumed shortly.

Martyn,
I figured I would wait a few weeks to ask how the update for 50-70 series is going.  In the meantime I have the 10-40 series that is working well.  Any updates?

Anxious to see the 50 to 70 patch. I did request a refund but will happily rebuy when I see it. I thought it had much promise.

Triflyman, obviously you don't live in Australia. Here a definition of soon is any time from tomorrow to Christmas and beyond .
Cheers
Pat


Some people appear positively brilliant. Then they open their mouth to speak.

Hi all,

The 50-70 SP is being worked on and we're talking a couple of weeks rather than months/years.

Thanks
Martyn

We are waiting now since december 2015 for the update of the Dc8-50-70.

Don't forget to add a POPUP for the AUTOPILOT. 
Otherwise for me the plane is not flyable. 
(I now use the AP-popup of the free Hjg_Dc-8 which works very well.) 
I had signaled this via a ticket already.

Another point: the distinctive loud  "HOWLING" during engine startup  existed only on the  P&W JT3D-3B FANJET of the DC-8-50 and DC-8-61 series. 

This howling was not present on the  P&W JT3D-3B/7 DUCTED-FAN FANJET of the DC-8-62/63 .

Just for information . Smile
