    Probably the biggest help to me is that I mostly fly multiplayer with a friend of 40 years, who I used to fly for in the '70s. We fly different areas (a lot of it in ORBX, but not all), fly a lot of...

    The SDK isn't necessary for the uses you mentioned, but it must be separately installed from the disk if you want it on your computer. It IS needed for many things, such as use of ADE or other...

    I'm not quite sure why you'd want best angle at anything other than full power, as it's primarily for obstacle clearance, and I'd set pitch attitude with no power change, maintaining Vx until clear...

    I agree with Kiwi, about learning properly, and like him I've seen way too much misinformation in the sim world. I'm a former flight instructor, but would never teach anyone to fly on the sim, due to...

    In the paid version of FSUIPC there is a checkbox to eliminate spikes on control surfaces. I use the one for elevator, but the rudder one might help you.

    What the GPS CAN do isn't necessarily what is published for the actual approach, when you're talking real life (as I presume this is, given the forum section we're in here), rather than the sim.

    Probably not- I'd guess you'd need to reduce the settings. However, with my four year old hardware (almost top of the line then), running ORBX, in most areas outside of big cities I can get a smooth...

    The biggest single difference, other than the attitude of the aircraft on the ground, is that the CG is in front of the main gear on a tri-gear, tending to straighten any slight swerves, while the CG...

    No, but you can't adjust the altimeter that far, at least on a real aircraft -- I've not tried it in FS. Also, from Leadville (and any other places) the terrain is such that in less than a mile you...
