    Default C-130 (Just Flight / CaptainSim)

    Hi,

    I'm interested in flying the C-130. Is the Just Flight C-130 Hercules X worth it? I've heard some negative stuff about Captain Sim's support. Are there still outstanding issues? And is it better to buy the Just Flight CD package (so that I can use with FS2004 and FSX?) Or download only a few models from Captain Sim since I won't be flying them all most of the time?

    In the meantime, I'm currently starting to try out the Simshed C-130 freeware.

    Thanks.

    Captain Sim only provides tech support on stuff brought through his shop so if you brought the Just flight version then you have to go to Just flight for official support.

    I do have the CS C130 all in one pack which i brought from the CS shop and i cant fault the aircraft ( although i have not spent much time in it ) but i do have the JF 757 Captain which is the complete 757 and addon packs. I cant fault the support on both websites for the products they sell, but i assume the lower price of the JF captain sim products is reflected by no official support from the CS website and no access to the support knowledge base.

    The c130 is very refined and i have not seen or found any bugs which is the opposite of the 757 ( im hoping the 757 4.5 planned update fixes them ).

    Based on your comments, then I guess there's no need to worry about a very mature and refined product either from JF or CS. Thanks.

    Get the online download for the CS C-130! I bought the CD version and it has no support, nowhere, nohow, none, zip, nada.
    The plane is pretty good though and the monster manual has gotten me thru most of my questions...Don

    Actually, as others have had to go through the growing pains that typifies Captain Sim product development, it IS a mature and refined product. It's certainly worth what I paid for it - as I got it as a gift!

    Don't cut off your nose to spite your own face. It is the best C130 out there, with a lot of depth and personality but it isn't perfect.

    Also Just Flight offer a refund policy, which CS do NOT. Check their Terms and Conditions.
