    If you're using Orbx scenery you should be good to go installing into P3dv4. I bought much of my Orbx scenery for use with FSX and am now using it with P3Dv4.

    Your new rig sounds awesome!

    There's really no need to commit right off the bat. You can download and run a demo of X-Plane for no charge. FSX:SE is usually the least expensive, currently $25 on Steam, and Prepar3d v4, what I...

    Thank you all for sharing! I see there is plenty more I can do, and learn to do. I don't have a clue how to fly using nav aids. So I think I might start there. Turn off the GPS and test my ability to...

    What do you all do with your flightsim?

    Over the past year I've had the opportunity to set up a pretty nice flight sim. I have a couple pay-ware aircraft and some decent hardware. But I'm beginning to get a little bored.

    I'm in the...

    Out of control after takeoff

    I've wanted to fly in X-Plane (11) for a bit, after a year using P3D exclusively. But for some reason as soon as my aircraft leaves the runway it goes wildly out of control. I've calibrated my flight...

    Thank you, johnost. The information you've given me has been helpful. And, yes, I tried the 2 monitor setup, but that's just not doable with the bezels in the center.

    Yeah, I've been doing this now for just over a year and I'm sure there are many things left to learn, just about the setup, let alone the actual flying. LOL.

    GPS kills FPS

    I'm sorry for all the questions lately. I'm trying to tune my sim by finding a good balance between graphics and performance and it seems like one question leads to another and another. :)

    Key command to remove cockpit?

    Isn't there a key command in P3Dv4 that will...

    Thank you, flytv1. I'm trying to decide between a 43" and a 49". The 49" really being way too expensive.

    Oh, of course. With a 3 monitor setup it's going to multiply both the horizontal AND the vertical x3! So a single wide monitor won't do that to the vertical like 3 monitors does. That makes perfect...

    Double Monitor or Extra Wide Single?

    I'm currently running P3Dv4 on a triple monitor (1920x1080 x 3) setup. But even my 1080 Ti has trouble keeping up with high settings at a decent FPS. When I add a small 4th monitor for Air Manager, I...
