    How far ahead? There's not a fixed distance. It all depends on the design of the individual aircraft. Propwash can delay the stall a little, over parts of the wing, under some conditions, and it can...

    There was nothing offensive in your post, just brought differences of opinion.

    In addition to any other reasons, keep in mind that there are relatively few people running P3D, compared to FSX.

    On the other, I see no reason to merge the two forum sections.

    Nice review, Nels -- thanks. Another R/C training choice is the Phoenix R/C. The version 5 that I got came with a Spektrum DX4e transmitter, usable both as a transmitter and to run the sim, but also...

    Propeller Factor, which is part of the cause of a prop-driven single (with a U.S. built engine) to turn left on the ground sometimes, and here's a much more complete explanation from Wikipedia:...

    Not really -- the dynamics of any aircraft in either sim is strictly up to the developer of the aircraft, and getting even reasonable behavior is more an art than a science so, given that there are...

    Perhaps that aircraft doesn't have a steerable nosewheel (I'm not familiar with the CL-215), in which case ground steering is by use of individual brakes when you're too slow for the rudder to take...

    And Windows (like other operating systems) doesn't like to have a disk drive with less than 15%-20% free space, minimum, as it needs (among other things) scratch pad space.

    That's the point we were trying to make earlier -- that flight regime is not well modeled, and FS aircraft, with rare exceptions, don't behave in the stall (and often in slow flight) as real aircraft...

    A Cessna 172 has PLENTY of altitude for recovery from 5,000 ft. AGL, or even from 2,000 if done properly. Airspeed reading zero on real aircraft doesn't mean no airspeed, just that the air pressure...

    Nope -- I use rudder pedals. For twist, you might look at Saitek. But the Warthog is great, at least for me. And it's very programmable.

    I recently replaced my GTX 570 with a GTX 970, and saw a slight (2-4) improvement in fps (CPU has more effect on that) in P3D, but I can now fly in somewhat more dense areas with decent performance,...

    Did you turn off HDR? With HDR off, I find FSX and P3D looking about the same, whether with default scenery or with ORBX stuff. With HDR on P3D has a bit darker appearance (I turn up the brightness...

    Yes, what's in P3D stays there, and what's in FSX stays there. They're independent of each other. But... IF you want to do so, it's possible to point P3D to the path name of some add-on in FSX and...

    The license is for you and you alone to decide. Moderators strongly discourage that discussion.
