    Default Whats the best MD-80/83 Payware add-on?

    Hi there

    I´d be interested in your opinion on the best MD-80/83 payware on the market! What products are available? I currently fly a lot of hours with the PMDG 737 and PSS Airbus series and enjoy their high level of detail and interaction. Is there something similar for an MD?

    Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Hi,

    There are several options:
    1. LAGO MD80
    I have it and like it, although the flightmodel could be better.
    Graphics are very nice and framerates OK.
    But LAGO doesn't provide proper support (anymore) since they more or less abandoned their support forums.

    2. MDMAX
    Have this one too, and I consider it to be a rip off.
    They released it in January (just days before LAGO) and made a lot of promises regarding extra functionality & fixes.
    At this moment more then 6 months have passed, and so far nothing much has changed.
    It's expensive, the graphics are basic, and in no way up to par with other payware aircraft.
    I'm sure others will disagree, but then again this is my personal opinion.

    3. Flight 1 MD80
    Maybe this is the best option. Not yet released, only announced:

    It looks promising and so far Flight1 always delivered quality add ons.

    Not an MD80, but still an excellent DC9(80) panel (and freeware)

    Now you just know when it(flight1) comes out that will be the best MD80 available.

    I think you are most probably right - flight1 usually delivers the goods!

    At the moment it looks like the Lago one is the best, I have that and the one from FS2000.org and to be honest it's pretty bland, doesn't even have a VC.

    As an alternative try the Iron Knuckles DC9 in the meantime also from Flight1. It's an oldie (IRL and in FS) but goldie. I cut my Airliner teeth on that lady.
