If you are here, chances are that you would have bought this product when it was released in 2002. But if you haven't heard of it then this freeware Boeing 747-200 simulation is something you must try. Excellent systems modelling even by today's standards. I read somewhere this was used to train pilots. To say a few, it has a fully functional Flight Engineer Panel, Fuelling panel, Full Flight Regime Autothrottle System, Litton INS, Tape & Dial gauges, realistic autopilot and much more. If you haven't tried this, youre missing out on a lot. Available on flightsim.com. Just search rfp_v2.zip. You can thank me later.
Still good software though I blv it has issues with FSX (not sure if someone tinkered and got it working properly). I recall it well as it was the first payware for MSFS that I ever bought and I remember my indignation when they released it as freeware. Still occasionally give it a whizz in FS9.

It became "FREEWARE" a few years ago, but, so far as i'm aware it's FS2004 (only) compatible .... and .... it, or the POSKY B747 classics (best 3D model candidadtes for these panels), or both, need some signficant FDe editing, I believe, in in order to be successfully merged.
Here's a bit of info about the change from payware to freeware: Appartently a number of retaailers were selling the program but not payiung the liucense fees to Ralph T, so he decided to beat them by making it free so they wouldn't be able to steal any more money. I don't remember where I read that tho. lr.

HMMM .... there's a lot of that "sort of crap" going on everythere within FS .... and even we've suffered it too in respect of the blatant violation some of our own files too.
We'll co-operate with most people .... "IF THEY ASK" .... and so long as we ourselves are limited by any imposition placed upon us by those who's work we host an a number of cases .... but sadly .... we do seem to be living in an age of deteriorating, or often non-existent, ourtesies where people are inclined toward just "TAKING" and not asking at all
TO RETURN TO TOPIC THOUGH ....
Can anyone list/link me to the specific RFPB panel merges (file name/s and their location/s) for use with the POSKY B747-100/-200/-300/and -SP ?
The RFP 747 Simulation was/is defenetly the best options for me when flying the classic Jumbos. I started very early with this product and merged it succesfully with me preferd POSKY Modell. Of course through the complexity of the panel simulation I had a lot of malfunctions at the beginning. In that time i startet to get closer into the datas and cfgs (panel and Aircraft). After countless flights and adjustment and tweaking I found my own personal solutions with satisfied me most. The most importand thing for a succesfull merge with the POSKY Modell was to change the entire fuel/tank section in the AC cfg, since it is essential on the correct positions of the tanks in the Posky Modell and also I have to add 2 Sections more for the Wing Tip Tanks. Otherwise you could not start the 747 from cold and you will not use the FI Panel in correct way. Since the RFP is only to start in correct Check List procedure. Another Point was to correct some datas in the airplane geometry to give the Posky a more heavy feeling and a correct ajustment in climb out, cruise and decend phases. To give the correct flight attiduts you also have to use the AIR FILE form RFP and change that in the SIM= Line off the AC Cgf. Another important thing is to use the the flapsetting section with some slightly different lifts and drages and the Autopilot Section. Also changes has to be made in the electrical section. You dont have to ajust anything in the panel cfg itself, only if you use some add on like the CIVA INS (which i uses first) and/or the ISG Gauges (which i am using during a lot of online flying(
Here is my favorite merge you can try based on the POSKY 747-200F-PW-JT9D-7R4G2 with the Analog Panel of RFP assigend. You can see what I have changed in the AC cfg. Since I am using the REDUX lights and perhaps you not, you have to change the light sections to the original Posky ones. Have fun if you try and tell me your meaning!It is for FS9 ONLY Regards Michael
