5.0 out of 5 stars Best C-130 Experience with MSFS November 16, 2008
By Styles
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This expansion for the MS2004 and MSX is the best C-130 experience for any experienced and inexperience simulator pilot. The program is very easy to install and comes complete with a 240 page pilot's notes manual for quick reference and for expansive information about the C-130's systems, technology, and checklists.

The book, [...] brings all the proceedures, take/off landing speeds, emergency proceedures, real pilots manuals (PDF) and much more.

The 2004 installation comes with 3 models with 53 liveries (paint jobs). The FSX installation comes with 11 variations of models with 28 paint jobs. This installation is especially cool with the AC-130, KC-130, Blue Angels with jet assist, coast guard and the well known Lynden L-100 with 3 variations.

The interior is as close to photo-realistic as your video card allows, with full virtual cabin. Every button, switch, knob, dial and guage works as in a real C-130 on the pilots, copilots, and nav's areas. Emergency proceedures are especially fun because if you dont do things in the right order, FS doesnt pick up the slack. I have already enjoyed 6+ hours of flying around. I don't plan on putting it down.

One word of advise, get pedals for coordinated turns, and make sure you visit avsim.com for advanced scenery for Little Rock, or Rammstein AB. FS2004 has an awesome add-on for KLRF with the addition of over 70 C-130s on the ramp that complete missions and fly patterns at all times of the day and are a blast with new voice packs. I highly reccommend expanding your Flight Simulator Experience with this pack and some new downloads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to install May 7, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The product was difficult to install because of the copywrite protection on the installation/program disc. I had experienced some trouble with my samsung disc drive, and after buying an external sony disc drive, the problems went away like a bad dream.
I complained to tech support and they replied that an update patch would fix the problem, however, I had the program installed and running by then.
The sim is fantastic, a lot of fun. Worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch for Top Aircraft! January 13, 2009

C-130 Hercules X Expansion for MS Flight Simulator X
This is a great program. It is a large and intricate program, and very detailed. It even comes with a 240 page pilots handbook! This is good one for Flight Simulator X enthusiasts.
Currently, I am running a 2.83GHz Pent 4 CPU with 2 gigs of memory, and a nVidia 7900 GS OC graphics card and it just isn't enough to get near what this program will do -and it is just the aircraft add-on! It has many liveries and configurations, everything seems to work, and it has very realistic response to flight inputs, load configs, and even weather. I haven't even scratched the surface of this program, but I will! I am building a new monster system just based on my wanting to run this program at the highest settings! My new system will use a new mobo with the X58 and the ICH10R chipsets and the 'new' i7 quad-core processor technology; AND I am going to SLI a pair of nVidia GTX 280's. Yeah, it will cost me and I am going to over build, but it will expand for years to come. Also since I can't do much else, and my system is my main connection and my entertainment, it is worth it for me! If the latest software, including this one, is any indication of what is coming down the pike, then we are on the brink of a giant leap in program requiremnets like happened in the mid-90's. Keep that in mind if you are shopping for a new system. But even if your present system is a little shy of the requirements -as I am now, if you can get usable fps out of your system you can fly this baby. It is worth it if you have FSX.
I also must mention that Just Flight is a great company.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only gives you more versions of the C-130 June 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I am currently a Naviagor on 3 of the models of the C-130.

Pros:
-Relativly Good replication of the real C-130 cockpit in the E model.
-Very accurate sounds of engines, flaps, ect...

Cons:
-I was hoping there would be some C-130 Missions added, not just planes.
-Does not differentiate between the E, H and J Models accuratly. The J model is a full glass cockpit but in this game it shows up the same as a 60's E model.
-Not sure it was worth the money since there are alot of free C-130 models for FSX.
-I wish it had more detail on the Nav station but I am probably biased about that. ;)

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Install November 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Been Dealing with customer support in England for about 4 weeks now. The installation program can't recognize the DVD. We tried many things. Finally they ask me if I want another one of their products. Got to give them credit for sticking with me on the problem but we both lost lots of time trying different things.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cannot be installed. October 19, 2013

The publishers are so jealous of this software they render it unistallable.
Safedisc prevents the DVD from being read on machines updated beyond 2008.
