    32" Monitor is NOT the same screen res as a 40" TV.
    Go for the highest res you (and your GPU) can afford and still maintain the required frame rate.

    Sounds about right. When I learned we even had to weigh each pilot, to be sure.
    I know it can't fill tanks and pax seat, even a heavy pilot needed to be careful.

    I go the other way: MSFS is not yet fit for purpose, in my view, and requires a fast internet connection.
    I'd go for P3D which is now at 5.2. FSX is obsolescent - and abandoned - by MS.

    Use the system we real pilots use:
    Don't aim for the runway; aim instead for the END of the runway and ensure the `sight picture` is parallel with both front and rear aligned in the FOV.
