OVERVIEW:

So, what is the most beautiful piston engine airliner? Pose this question among two or more aviation enthusiasts and you may be sure that a lively, possibly heated discussion will ensue. However, I would be quite surprised if most, if not all, would ultimately agree that the Lockheed “Constellation” was the most beautiful, graceful if you prefer, or at least among the top two or three.

The “Connie,” as it was universally and affectionately called (much to the dismay of Eddie Rickenbacker of WWI fame who, as the owner of Eastern Airlines, thought the name to be too effeminate) was a spectacular and singular aeronautical design from the first rude sketch of “Excalibur” to the last L-1649 “Starliner.” Gathering many firsts and breaking many records in its almost five decades-long useful lifetime, Constellation consistently stands out from her sister airliners both visually and functionally. Sadly, the many luminous stars embodying this “Constellation” were ultimately eclipsed when at their brightest by the urgent, inexorable force of progress which saw the end of the age of the long-distance piston engine airliners and the birth of the big, jet-powered transports. This new era of air-transportation in the U.S. Began on 26 October 1958 when Pan American Airlines (Pan Am) flew a Boeing 707 with 111 passengers from New York to London. Soon, the jet-powered Douglas DC-8, Convair 880 and Sud Aviation “Caravelle” joined the 707 and long-range piston airliners were through.

Even so, there are many, this writer among them, who posit that even whilst swifter, no kerosene burning aluminum tube has ever come close to matching Connie’s superb grace and poise. Her story is full of ironies and surprises, of Geniuses, Presidents and Pioneers. You see, there once was this fabulously wealthy, incandescently brilliant, eccentric movie mogul, aviator and airline owner who had an idea for an airplane... - Excerpt from Constellation manual history by Mitchell Glicksman © 2016

FEATURES:

History comes alive: Experience a timeless legend brought to life inside a simulation.

Every aircraft is unique: Don't expect all gauges to read the same values, just like the real airplane. And each airplane is persistent.

Four crew positions: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and navigator. Fully modelled and functioning positions constructed with down to the rivet detail.

Intelligent crew and responsive passengers:

Your engineer can manage all the systems on the fly, responding to various conditions

- Copilot calls out critical info

- Navigator observes and posts findings

- Flight attendent tirelessly works for both you and the passengers (just like the real world counterparts)

Unexpected events possible: Engines along with other systems including heating, air conditioning, and pressurization can be problematic

Captain's Career: Your performance is remembered and can get better, worse, or stay consistent based on your flying abilities and flight management

Real time Load Manager: with the ability to load individual passengers, cargo, and fuel or select presets.

Custom Navigator's Map: Zoomable map can be customized to show the desired information

Default and Historic Sperry Autopilot: You can select either autopilot in the sim

Authentic fuel deliver includes primer only starts: You can start the engines properly by using primer with the mixture in the OFF position.

Auto-Mixture: that actually performs as intended. Now you can set for “auto-rich” or "auto-lean" and the aircraft fuel to air ratio will be automatically determined and set by the carburetor based upon various factors such as altitude.

Custom Cockpit Systems and Gauges for the ultimate in realism taken far beyond what is available by default.

Inertia starters: Start these big beautiful engines by the book using authentic inertia wheel energizing and engagment

Feathering props and air starts: Custom physics allows for realistic feathering and air starts without using the starter

Deep cockpit lighting: Flood, Flourescent, and gauge lighting modeled

Dual speed superchargers: Proper supercharger physics and each engine can independently run in either high or low blower

New slip and ball code from the Accu-Sim T-6: Enjoy smooth, custom physics in this critical gauge during turning maneuvers

Authentic flight stability: The Connie was known for being a little less stable in pitch than other aircraft, which requires a little more finess and attention

Piston combustion engine modeling

Real-world conditions affect system conditions, including engine temperatures.

Fully click-able cockpits: with authentically working systems and gauges.

3D Lights 'M' (built directly into the model.)

Pure 3D Instrumentation.

- Natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance.

- Smooth movements.

Fire Extinguisher system with fully functioning overheard panel and controls.

Ground Power Unit (GPU) to power systems with engines off and not drain the battery.

Cabin pressurization system controls. You control the target altitude and the rate of pressure change and the system authentically displays and manages cabin pressure.

Three different liveries: including TWA, BOAC, and a C-69 cargo paint

A2A specialized bump mapping and specular lighting on all models.

Crew Reports pop-up 2D panel keeps important information easily available

Custom Navigator's map: accessible via keystroke or the Navigators station.

Manage temperatures with engine cowl flaps and oil cooler flaps

High temperatures can adversely affect engine performance, Serious overheating can cause scoring of cylinder head walls including ultimate failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused.

Spark plugs can clog and eventually foul if engines are allowed to idle too low for too long. Throttling up an engine with oil-soaked spark plugs can help clear them out

Experience authentic asymmetrical drag when operating various flap systems in flight.

REVIEWS
Following the T6 Texan, A2A released another big 4-motor aircraft: the Constellation.
This was very exciting, as A2A improves their products with every new release. Makes you wonder what “Connie” has as improvements compared to the earlier released Boeing 337 Stratocruiser.
FSX has limits, A2A however always delivered very well operating aircrafts. Question is how much better a product can they deliver?

TROPICALSIM - WASHINGTON NATIONAL KDCA FS9 FSX P3D
christopher mcdanald
Good product I rate it a four out of five because it needs to update the airport a little because it is missing a couple key things like the new expansion of runway 22/4 and the renovation of the airport. But overall the graphics are five out of five for the price I recommend it!
MLADG - MESSERSCHMITT ME-109 G-2 X-PLANE
Dominic Smith
Having previously purchased both the Flight Replicas 109 and also the DCS variant, I was really looking forward to flying this model in X-Plane. However, after completing just a couple of circuits, it was painfully clear to see, that this offering by MLADG, was far inferior. The flight model for one, is totally unbelievably at certain phases of flight and really spoils the immersion factor. The engine sound samples too, are of poor quality (even with decent headphones) and have an annoying loop. If you've ever flown the A2A Messerschmitt (which is, I think, over ten years old), or the Cliffs of Dover variant, then you'll be extremely disappointed with the sounds provided. Graphically the aircraft looks reasonably good, but this is more down to X-Plane's lighting effects, rather than the model itself. If you're coming from FSX/P3D, or even Cliffs of Dover/DCS for that matter, then I suggest (unfortunately) you look elsewhere.

Ignore my last review! I just noticed the scenery configurator which allows you to set "Animated traffic" which is off by default. Top notch scenery!
LORBY-SI - CROPDUSTER X FSX P3D
Larry Wigmore
I would beg to differ with the previous comments describing CDX as boring. For those interested in light aviation and like to simulate low and slow flight, this program has allowed me to integrate the realistic rural sceneries of Orbx with the detailed purpose built AG aircraft accurately modeled by Alabeo, some simple scenery enhancement by ISD3, altogether into a most accurate simulation of the world of cropdusters. This is precision pattern flight simulation at it’s finest. CDX integrates an accurate representation of the SATLOC litebar into the cockpit, a sort of localizer guidance for each of the passes that are required to be at the correct height, speed and track to efficiently spray the field. CDX provides the sim pilot a rating of how accurate the flying has been. The litebar is not easy to master, and for me , spraying a field is much more difficult than landing the plane correctly. A second part of the program involves treating your crops in a timely fashion to avoid their demise . This I haven’t yet gotten into yet and can’t comment. But the concept sounds brilliant. What I like about the newest version of the program is that I can designate any of the Orbx simulated farm fields as the one to be sprayed accurately. I have found you can easily enhance this field(s) with 3D crops as opposed to just the textured tile which adds greatly to the visuals. This can be done using ISD 3 ( Instant Scenery Designer) and a typical field can be enhanced for crop dusting in about 15 min. CDX developer ( Oliver Binder) is now in the process of integrating 3D crops directly into the CDX program. I should also mention he has been very helpful in answering many of my questions and is truly interested in refining and improving the product as much as possible. In conclusion, I was starting to find navigating from one airport to another as a little boring, particularly enroute. I looked forward to mainly executing the approach and landing correctly. Cropdusting is a controlled landing avoidance every pass and it is anything but boring, even simulated. Check out the real-life vids on You-tube !

Such a great product, makes HongKong more realistic also can run very smooth.
VIDAN DESIGN - BILLUND X FSX P3D

It's a nice little airport! Good looking textures, great modelling and very decent performance make this is a great destination. 4 out 5 stars because the airport still feels a bit "Lifeless" to me, some moving traffic on the apron would have been great.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - WASHINGTON X FSX P3D
Gregg Seipp
A rock-solid product. Great performance and just beautiful. My only wish is more trees. Worth every penny, though.
TAXI2GATE - PARIS CHARLES DE GAULLE LFPG FSX P3D
Tim Faithfull
Quite a nice looking scenery, but I'm having numerous issues with it at the moment. The scenery uses SODE to provide moving jetways etc - however this is not functioning properly on my system, and is causing the sim to freeze continuously. The jetways are missing, and SODE does not recognise any triggerable objects. There's no information about how to trigger the jetways in the documentation, and so far there's been no useful advice from T2G on their forums. Apart from this, I've noticed numerous texture glitches, with transparent jetways or missing polygons underneath buildings etc. I'd be happy to overlook these were it not for the scenery being completely unusable at present. If T2G come through with an update/patch to fix the issue, I will review my score!
