RFP 747 in FSX

Speedbird ATC

Recommended Posts

I have caught the classics fever. The one classic that has a special place in my heart is the 747 100/200/300. Unfortunately, there is not a single good one for FSX/P3D, or X Plane! I downloaded the Rikoooo El Al fleet which included a conversion of the wonderful FS9 plane, the RFP 747. However, I found it to be riddled with bugs! The ignition start switches do not move into GRD start position, and autostart keeps me from running the fuel control switches. Through magic I learned from a friend of mine that attended Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry, (And FSUIPC. Probably mostly FSUIPC.) I managed to find a way to bind keys to autostart individual engines, and increase mixture in individual engines. This trick worked beautifully with engines 2 and 4 and required me to only wait until the N2 rises, then hold down CTRL-SHIFT-F4 until the autostart turned off. However, 1 and 3 were not so simple, and kept shutting down as they reached 30% n2. So it was back to the magic plan. (I genuinely cannot tell you how I managed to get 1 and 3 running. It involved turning slew mode on and off) In addition, the APU guzzles fuel at a rate of 100 lbs per second, and the engines don't burn a single pound of fuel at all. I am at a loss. Googling has not helped me at all. Has anyone succeeded or tried to get this wonderful plane running?

The CLS 747 is quite decent... I fly it occasionally.


Come on, don't make me laugh, the CLS 747 doesn't compare in any way to the RFP 747 :D


I bought the CLS 747-200 and kicked it in the trashbin within less than an hour!

Superficial arcade compared to the extremely realistic RFR 747-200, it surely broke all records of "buy and dump" stuff :(


According to what to fly I use P3D, FSX Steam or X-plane ... and FS2004 to fly the B747-200. The 747-200 of RFP is by far superior to anything else on the market and FOR FREE. :cool: So, in the mean time any worthy replacement shows up, I recommend to install FS2004 and the RFP 747 once more...


If you want to fly old iron that is modelled to a similar level as the RFP 747-200, I recommend the Flyjsim B727 v.2 on X-plane.


There are rumors that Flyjsim is developping similar a 747-200... :pilot:
