Support for the iFly 737NG
« on: August 26, 2010, 07:08:58 PM »
Hey,
is it possible to get a config for the new iFly 737-700 and 737-800?
Would be great...
An economy only config would also be very appreciated!

Do you need the aircraft.cfg's for that?

Thanks guys!

I would be very grateful if the iFly 737NG range were incorporated into TOPCAT   :)

Well...I have a little problem with the config ;)

OK...I fixed the trim settings...they don't match up perfectly with the load manager, but IMHO they are more realistic values for the 737 (a loaded COG of 30 is a very far aft COG and would rarely be used in the rw.)  The empty weight does match up though.

Here is a good configuration for the iFly 737-800. If things work fine, it will be added to the next release!

Thanks a lot!
Will test it.
Can I change the cabin lay-out to 189 pax without any further modifications to use it for high density cabins?

Is there any chance that you can make different engine ratings for the ifly ? such as 24K instead of 22K

Thanks in advance  ;)

Those require a completely new aircraft model, since the engines are operating at a reduced thrust level...

any chance of the 600 and 900 series being an option for Topcat? I mean its a really great program and ive been using it for a while now but It just seems the developers have little intrest in making configs for aircraft.  There are so many aircraft that it does not officialy support.   Its the only thing I would like to see improved.

I'll add my interest in seeing the other two NG's having detailed performance data included in TOPCAT, not only because of the iFLY but because of the impending release of the PMDG NGX.   I'm happy to see the 700-800 data in topcat, as they really are the only two models I fly.   But I fear that the reason I don't use the 600 and 900 is because TOPCAT does not offer data on those models, and in the end I'm missing out, and I'm sure many present and future NG operators who are as picky as I am will avoid those models for this very reason.

I would think that when the NGX is released, TOPCAT will see increase in sales because users will aspire to using TOPCAT (and the future PFPX) to pair real world takeoff/landing (and in the case of PFPX, dispatch) data with the no compromises flight model fidelity of PMDG's NGX.    I understand that compiling the data for the 600 and 900 is a huge undertaking, but ultimately it could payoff big by increasing sales of both TOPCAT/PFPX and allowing us "picky" NG fans to actually fly those ignored models.  And as an added bonus, it would be nice if the other engine ratings for the 600-900 series were modeled in TOPCAT, whereas we can only choose 22k for the 700 and 26k for the 800.   I know that I can "simulate" the other engine ratings by choosing a fixed derate (TO1 or TO2), but a proper simulation of those other engine ratings would be a more elegant solution.

Please give the 600/900 some consideration!
