Is the project not progressing anymore? I didn't see any a development in the past few months.

I'd like to fly this plane and also to help out with it. I'm pretty excited for this thing!

Irregardless of the visual aspects, the 747-8 here is pretty similar to PMDG's 747, though it lacks a complex FMC and IRS it's still quite the same, I did not have any hard time figuring out what buttons to press on the PMDG since I've got the knowledge thanks to this bird. Handling is also very similar, though the PMDG one, slightly drifts and banks quite faster than this, but overall, I find both the same (irregardless of the visuals)

You are joking, right? The V3? QOFTS II?
