Any chance that you guys will upgrade the 80 like are doing for the 747? I really like the visual model, however, system and sound wise its not so good. If so, I have a bevy of recommendations that could be either added or corrected.

Thanks!
Todd.

Off the top of my head this is my list so far:

Corrected FMS:

-Honeywell 921 or 927(I think)
-VNAV / PERF
-FMS EPR
-EPR LIM
-Fixed IRS Alignment.
-Fix "prog" page. Should be "Progress", not "Program".

Sounds:
-Louder background fan noise (the one that sounds like someone is beating a cowbell into a shop fan).
-Trim wheel "grunt".
-Audible "Stabilizer Motion!". Female Voice.
-Audible warnings: Takeoff config warnings, "More Flaps!", "More Trim!", "Spoilers!", etc; also, wind shear and fire warnings(<-Not real important). Female Voice.
-Auto Spoiler "Screech" when deployed.
-Auto Throttle "Buzz".
After all of that, you really should not be able to hear the engines from the cockpit....They are in the back and being drowned out by all the other noise.

New external model: MD-90-30. :)

The plane doesn't need to be 100% as real as it gets, it simply needs to have all of the things that would be used or heard during normal operations of the plane.

I am sure there is more...but I can't think of it at the moment.

The aircraft is a very nice add on. But it could do with some improvement. That' s why I agree with Todd.

In addition to his suggestions I would like to see a revision of the flaps speeds. Either the speeds are too high or the corresponding trim settings are wrong. This leads to a nose-down-effect which was reported in various posts already.

Please also address a texture bug in the 2D-panel:

If I were you I' d also replace the red X by more subtle symbols as you used them with the B767 package for instance.

Many thanks!
