Kirk Posted November 25, 2018 Share Posted November 25, 2018 I'm thinking about buying a 3rd party Cessna 172 for use with FSX. Mainly because the instrument graphics on the default C172 are just ugly and kind of difficult to read. I've tried both AirManager on my laptop (works good) and RF Cockpit on my iPad (also works good). But I'd like to get away from having another piece of software to have to worry about, plus I don't want to raise my monitors up so high as to be able to view these instruments in front of them. Having a nice looking, easier to read, instrument panel in the actual aircraft would be awesome. So my questions are... do any of you use 3rd party aircraft, specifically a Cessna 172? Are instrument panel graphics better? Does the system take much of a hit as far as FPS? Can I buy one that doesn't require me to check the oil daily (A2A's Cessna looks awesome but right now I just want to get in the cockpit and fly). Any suggestions, ideas, recommendations, or shared experience would be awesome! Prepar3d v4: HP Omen Desktop.
