    Now that I've had a chance to look through the manual you linked to, it might be interesting to see where in the manual you saw that 3 knot difference -- the kinds of charts they have in that manual...

    I expect that Mark has it right -- a conflict with key assignments. I've been using both for years, but had to change the pause key for TrackIR -- I actually use a button on the control (joy) stick.

    I've never seen that level of detail in grass in FSX, even with ORBX scenery (some of the best). That grass and terrain look rather real, to me.
