    Default Weather radar for FSX

    I'd like to be able to use weather radar on the default planes in FSX. Does anyone here know:

    1) Are there any weather radar gauges for FSX, and if so, are they freeware or commerical?
    2) What is the impact on framerates? For me, add ons aren't worthwhile if they reduce the FPS.

    Thanks

    Brian

    the Captain Sim Weather Radar (http://www.captainsim.com/products/r001/) is the only seperate weather radar gauge i know of, others are normally "built in" to an addon. For example, a weather radar is built into the Wilco E-Jets

    as for frame rates, with my experience with the Wilco E-Jets, the weather radar does not impose a noticeable performance hit, not to sure about the CS one

    Brian, the CS weather radar is really nice addition to your sim, and very cheap.

    There is a weather radar gauge as part of Active Sky Advanced (ASA). I have not tried it as of yet.

    I bought it on Sunday and have now had chance to test it out. My initial impressions are good. The install was straightforward, and the gauge seems to work well and does not appear to have a noticeable effect on performance.
