QualityWings Ultimate 787 Update Preview

787 29

It looks like the team over at QualityWings has been listening to our feedback for their next 787 update. After the release of this plane, one of the most common points of feedback from the community was definitely the lack of a good payload and fuel manager. One of the top concerns was a lack of ZFW indication anywhere, neither in the onboard payload manager in the EFB nor in the external payload manager. Another much heard complaint was no good way to enter exact amounts for fuel and payload, with clunky and inaccurate sliders fulfilling this job.

QualityWings have previewed some images on Facebook, indicating that both of these concerns will be addressed. For one, there will be a clear ZFW indicator on the EFB payload manager. Another, much needed improvement is the inclusion of a number pad on this screen, seemingly to enter exact amounts of fuel.

These improvements will be coming in Ultimate 787 Collection update 1.1.2. A release date or window for this update is not yet known.

Always nice to see the support of a product continuing after release.

They already said this plane won’t ever be PMDG detailed and I knew that before purchase. But the loading panel and a few other weird issues kept me from really enjoying this plane. Hope the VNAV/LNAV perks get sorted out to!

Keep it up QW.

They need to have dual weight units LBS and KGS, I mostly operate using KGS and they need to change to allow pilots to use what weight unit they operate under

Not a happy camper

I’m glad they’re fixing the load manager. Trying to use those sliders made me want to shoot myself…twice.

How were these basic omissions not picked up in even basic Beta testing?

Not a happy camper

According to QW, they’re severely short staffed on pretty much everything. Why they don’t get more people to help is beyond me.

And the fuel temperature, the HUD, the keyboard input, the performance calculato etc. Thx for preventing PMDG doing it.

And PMDG made a B747 eventhough the iFly 747 wasn’t bad at all. If they want to do it, they’ll do it. The QW787 won’t stop them.

Yes, how dare anyone other than PMDG do a modern Boeing and stop them from having a monopoly!

Being serious, it seems to me there’s room for a more expensive system-level 787 as well, as there is for the Aerosoft and FSLabs A320 families.

oooh nice. can we also fix its insane 16000nm range while at it??

Why are you arguing with me? the plane goes way beyond its RL range. does it really matter if its 16 or 18 nm? no it doesnt.

So i want to hear what your max range with it is, because i can do katl>vabb and then take a turn and land in moscow. mm yeah ok.

I own it and it definitely won’t go 16000NM so nice try. Regarding the A/P while it does need some smoothing how do you know how a Boeing A/P works? Are you type rated in a Boeing?

And the janky autopilot. I’ve tried it and it’s just not how a Boeing autopilot works.
