s zarella: This is a review taken in my own account and my experience, These are my
own opinions expressed.
Ok. so i decided to give the QW 757 a run for its money and see what all
this talk is about QW vs CS and online how many people think the QW is
Let me start by saying i have been flying the Cs757 for years, I know all
of its working parts, all its systems, Its flight Characteristics,
Let me just preface for a Know Guide, About what your missing with the QW
that you get with the CS,
Again i have been flying the CS757 for years and have Much experience with
the planes limitations,.
Starting with the Overhead.
To start, You cant align the IRS in the QW, there is no page 2 3 4 5 on the
POS INIT page, and the ICAO is " auto filled "
The Apu start knob is a One click Auto knob, Over Half of the knobs on the
Overhead are for SHOW and are INOP.
a Fake TMP panel. for climb, to 1/2
Automatic Speed Flags on the Airspeed indicator but no Vref30+ 60 + 80
flags for flap retraction, yes i know it has a speed tape:: but I changed
the options for the Ball Indicator instead and still couldnt move the
So i started with the FMC, past the POS INIT, onto ROute, Plugged in Route
to and from, entered the route, Dep and ARR sids and stars enterered,
couldnt put a flight number in, And when i pressed EXEC, i didnt see any
additional Options, such as Save route, that are available on the CS.
INIT REF page , automatically put my ZFW, no option for the CG% and trim
values, again all automatic, and unable to perform a derated Takeoff, and
VSPEEDS were already calculated and PREFLIGHT COMPLETE message was already
on the Screen.
Keep in mind i knew about all the FMC functions on the QW, just explaining
Upon starting the engines, i started with engine #2, Turn knob to GRND, and
couldnt control the fuel cut off switch, It was all Automatic, Like an
airbus startup system,
I taxi out, and start my take off roll, Press EPR, and this thing took off
like a rocket! But so unrealistic with the weight i was at,
Onto the autopilot, at 1500 FT selected VNav and started my flap
retraction, But the F/D Guidance bars didnt pitch down the a/c i had to
manually pitch the nose down, I did notice where ever I pitched the nose up
or down the F/D followed as opposed to the f/d correcting the commanded
So i had set 5000ft on the MCP, and upon hitting 5000ft, i noticed the VNAV
was still managing vertical guidance, but not Kicking off and going to
speed managed as it should.
I also noticed there was no RMI pointers, and no vertical Guidance line on
the HSI map, on Climb, It was there on Descent only. The VNAV really
dissapointed me, Was totaly unpredictable.
And the Autopilot is intergrated into the mainpanel and no extra second
full Autopilot Panel,
What i Liked about the QW, was the sounds, particulary the Engine start
Clicks from pwr transfer, The Spoiler deployed in air Sound, supurb and the
speed break Clutch sounds on landing, On point and perfect.
I can see the alure of someone who loves this plane and doesnt want the
complexity of systems, and a nice flying plane, and keeps it simplistic.
I can tell those who dont have the CS what to expect differently,
Every Knob In the plane, Moves, and Controls. Every KNOB! You start by
Turning the 3 IRS knobs from OFF to ALIGN, and transit through NAV, if you
lost IRS data in flight, YOu can put the IRS#3 to ATT and will get your IRS
You have Manual control of systems, and subsystems, say for instance, move
over to the Cabin Pressurization panel. You can set the Landing Elevation,
and custom pressurization, and Activate EQUIP cooling,
FMC has the most complex 757 FMC for FS9 FSX,
POS INIT page, Manual ICAO entry, IRS coordinates Entry, Multiple IRS and
GPS pages to see IRS 1 2 3 to make sure #3 is aligned,
Also use for GNE error calculations.
Route page, More options, Save FLight, Company Routes,
PERF INIT: Set ZFW, See your Cruise CG% and can modify step size for
TAKEOFF: SET derated Thrust!!!! Save those PW engines!! and all
important!!!! Set CG% and any of you that has seen my work in the cooler
this should be easy for you!
And getting that all important Trim Setting.
You wont get a PREFLIGHT COMPLETE message unless youve selected the
Vspeeds, and have completed all the FMC required steps.
Moving onto the main panel, Able to Manual control 4 Speed Flags,
And Engine startup is Manual. same turn of the Knob, But MANUAL control of
the Fuel Cut off switch.
Also a treat is the all included Weather Radar built into the HSI. with
full control tilt and gain.
and the bonus of a full Autopilot Gauge, undockable with realistic
function, Say, Set your cruise alt in the FMC to 34000. Then set your MCP
select VNAV at acceleration Height at let the autopilot climb to 10000,
Upon reaching within 500 feet VNAV switches to SPEED managed, and levels
off,. letting you know to reset the MCP.
You also get a Altitude Vertical Guidance Bar on both CLIMB and DESCENT,
I have both and choose the CS for the Systems and Realism.
I have fully tested both aircraft together, Including a Tablet FMC for
both, I Now see the Vast Difference between these 2 757s.
I finish with one thought,
The QW is a great 757 for simplicity, Excellent exterior Model and great
Flight Dynamics, Its Over simplicity is good for people hobby pilots and
not hardcore simmers who want the most control like PMDG ect,.
The CS757 is an exceptional aircraft that gives the User complete control
over all its systems. It closly Mimics a real world 757-200. if you
followed my weight and balance MOD you'll see this bird fly even more
realistic and understand
Weight balance and CG%.
In the end its up to the user to see what level simulation they want. Since
i am a hardcore sim pilot and being able to use this plane in a custom Home
roosterpit that i cant with the QW is the Deciding Factor for me.
I hope this side by side comparison has shown who doesn't own one or the
other what These 2 planes are head to head with, and use my vast experience
and knowledge to help in their experience.
Either way Both Companies Pride them selves and bringing this aging beauty
to Life as she fades away but keep her alive in our world.
psour33: Captainsim is just a joke not a sim. FSX standard planes are better.
Nick Sannicandro: Quality Wings in a heartbeat. I have it, and it is truly amazing!
Carlos Sikora: music pliss
David Rainiel Moraga: I Like the Quality Wings because the fraps is better and better Virtual
roosterpit While the Captain Sim is poor in fraps and the VC is bad (the
primary flight display gauge is not working)
Jeremy Walcott: To my knowledge My pastor of my church is and EX 757 pilot and I like ask
questions especially.What he told me is the 757 is a very versatile
aircraft and Its a joy to fly and he also said it gets of the ground
really fast.QW actually proves that for me no the CS verison!
Erol Alici: You don't judge a book by its cover is what they say. Visuals do not say
everything, its about the quality of the simulation too.
Anthony aguirre: the first song is bitter sweet symphony the second i don't know so srry
SpartanW98: lol I do hate it, but the installation was pissing me off so bad, for some
reason just flight products cant find flight simulator on my pc so they
cant install. took me 3 weeks of phone calls and emails just to get my CLS
dc 10 installed, too much hassle. oh well lol, it seems like a great
product, I'll be getting the QW 757 soon so I hope that will work lol.
aidan buckner: what is the first music?
LOLcopterxD: QW - Better FPS and better Quality. CS - crap.
0AnotherAccount0: Define toy
TheAnsarias: nice one man...i definitly prefer QW wat song is at the very beginning?
MarkBarrett: Quality Wings wins by a mile. It may not have as much features in the
interior but the exterior, textures and everything are amazing!
Anders Breivik: Cs
Boeing747type8: CS sucks, QW, the real deal
OpticQ: @Awesomeness6699 That what i just said "Captain sim is an fps eater" :P
Flight322: QW all the way.
Jonathan August: i like ur videos when all is normal ,and this crazy ass music apperas !! :D
Fleshk: @lars12355 Bitter Sweet Symphony
James Linda: I'm not saying that you don't know anything about realism. Also, I'm not
saying that QW is great and one of the best sim addons ever (that's PMDG
737NGX title ;D). BUt lets be honest - CS is mostly: "cool look, not
especialy realistic flight dynamics, engine power and system simulation".
Mark Aviation: Is the qw 757 better than the cs 757?
Ted Striker: Both are great !
Michael Van Heemst: Captainsim sim wins!!!!
Fleshk: QW! name on the first song?
Andy Black: hy fsxnoob what is the best payware plane or scenery for fsx sold on fs
HardwareAddiction: the vc looks pretty bad on both.. some many devs fail at this. QW though,
is showing a remarkable modelling work on their 787 vc.
LinkinPark2135: The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony
Wesley D.C: Outside= Quality Wings Interior/roosterpit= Captain Sim It is what you find
more important ;)
XxL33ZOxX: The Captain Sim looks way better :D
▂▃▅▆ ＧＡＭＥＳ & ＭＯＲＥ ▆▅▃▂: Latest version of CS 757 has fixed allot of bugs and is pretty good.
0AnotherAccount0: Definitely qw*
✈ NickFlightX - Aviation at its Max! ✈: QW because the outside model looks more correct the the CS and the roosterpit
look more finished.
EOR EOR: qw
Jonathan August: @bkingair350 i subbed u :)
100mgpscoot: Hands down cs wins because if you go to the config file for cs you can
change the color of the blue screens to black or whatever and the roosterpits
way more detailed and to me looks more like the real thing
FlightSupreme: QualityWings, I would say is the best one when it comes to autopilot and
airplanes features, but if you want for example the cabin and more
animations like opening windows and stuff like that then it is CS. But for
me I like the QualityWings 757 better than the CS because it has a much
more advanced autopilot and more realistic to real life.
OpticQ: I prefer quality wings, captain sim is a fps eater!!!
Zidane Hadeed: the one with good looking winglets have my vote
EmpireofBritain96: Unboxing leve-D 767
TAE2053: good video! CS FTW!!
No1flightsimchannel: Qw better virtual roosterpit!
fsxsupremer: i have captain sim and when i set it up the plane just rocks in flight can
any one help me please
SabreWolf Fshlps: QW !!!!! The Winner
Andy Black: @fsxnoob can you find them on fs pilot shop
Aertraveller: Is that a joke? CS 757 is full of bugs and ugly cartoonish roosterpit &
horrible flight dynamics. QW is way more realistic even if its systems are
a bit simplified.
flights360: What is the link to the quality wings 757
flusispieler: QW rulezzzzz
Alex Pansieri: Songs? Hahaha, great job!
NathanCAY1010: I have both installed & they both seems to be very good, its so hard to
choose which one is nice
