    Don't know why you would have one but all planes do (sorry, my first thought).

    But do you have auto-coordinate (auto-rudder?) enabled? This couples the rudder to the ailerons for simpler control...

    By computer standards, FSX is old. FS2004 is ancient.

    (My computer is newer than FSX, and it is decrepit enough to be laughable - Vista 32, 2gig, HD5670.)

    The only Alphasim English Electric I'm aware of is their old FS2002/CFS2 model, which is available as freeware at the Virtavia site (http://www.virtavia.com/Freeware/index.php).

    I see no direct comparison, it all depends on the developer(s). There is much freeware available that is easily the equivalent of payware, and I've seen some payware i wouldn't download if it were...

    Yes there is. Go fly there, skim the river under the bridge, climb over the falls. And tell me there isn't room for major improvement.

    I agree with a comment I read on a forum many years ago: "MSFS has always been more about navigating than flying." It is the community that has made it more of a flying sim.

    Yes, the effectiveness parameters in the aircraft.cfg are the first things to check. The values can be related to percentage, "1" = 100%, so 0.95 would be 95%, 1.10 would equal 110%. Arguably there...
