    Unfortunately, Apple products won't work. The hardware and operating system software are enough different to be incompatible. Xplane has a version for the Mac, I'm told, and Flight Gear Flight...

    That is really dependent on you. For me, a combined unit would not be satisfactory -- it would be rather awkward, IMO. But many folks seem to find that arrangement OK.

    On the other hand, if you...

    Did you not read my post immediately following the one you quoted? The one where I said: "I should have read and thought more carefully before posting. "

    Yes, I wasn't thinking it through, I...

    Using a stick should be just fine. As far into training as you said you got, you've already built a pretty good muscle memory with the yoke, so using a stick on the sim won't do much to that. And...

    efanton, I owe you an apology for coming on so strong. You do seem to have a much more reasonable tone than some other VR advocates here, and the final statement in your post, "Its all about choice,...

    Are you yet another incarnation of GhostTown? You seem to fail to understand that we are against VR FOR US, NOT for YOU! You are MORE THAN WELCOME to use VR to your heart's content with our blessing....

    Ghosttown, I asked you not to PM me any more. In reply to my post #8 in this thread you sent me a PM that said:

    Your video proves what many of us object to about VR. The beautiful first part of that video is showing the screen (not VR) view of head movement/looking around that could just about be TrackIR, as...

    Tell United and other airlines, not to mention Flight Safety and other operations, that their simulators are for "what no longer exists."

    Simulate means to imitate, but it's not specific for "what...

    The two programs are very definitely different in their architectures. There's no commonality at all, and they each take a different approach to pretty much every feature, including aerodynamics. FS...

    Nothing, of course. I think Kapitan's looking to reminisce. But those who DO remember were certainly on this forum a lot of years ago which, in itself, doesn't do much for credibility, only for...

    Yes, I remember Simon. Sure, he had an unusual approach to a lot of things, and often some folks would take him wrong, but other times his attitude left a bit to be desired. It's been a long time...

    You're welcome, Rick. It's getting old finding people on here that feel it's their way or no way.

    Hmmm... Is it only a binary choice? Does that make me a gamer? Or maybe it's just that I've seen so much parking-to-taxi-to-runup in the real world that my impatience to fly lets me start on the...

    Lots of simmers (non-pilots) learn about IFR, though many spend most of their time on autopilot, so I expect that many VFR only pilots do so in the sim, also. And while real world flying on the...

    I'm not sure the Aircraft Labels will have much effect (unless there is a LOT of traffic), but 1600x1200 is an odd resolution. What is the NATIVE screen resolution of the OP's monitor, and what is it...
