    Yes, there are a few payware (maybe even a freeware or two) that have much improved behavior over the "norm," and a friend of mine had a passion for making FS aircraft behave much like real ones, so...

    I know exactly what you're talking about, and it is indeed a flaw in FSX, or more properly in the setup of flight parameters for most aircraft. Most folks seem to not believe it happens, or think...

    Well, my memory wasn't that great. I finally got a chance to run FSX, and what I was thinking of was under Views/Axis Indicator where you can get a V or 4 dots , and it's not specifically windshield...

    A lot of good material that is well covered here. I do have a couple of relatively minor nitpicks, mostly with phraseology, rather than with the actual facts, though the first one below is a sim...

    Perhaps you could describe what you see that makes "mach speed" seem glitchy. If it's the fact that your airspeed indicator shows variation as you climb and descend, perhaps even as you go from one...

    If you read through the threads in this forum section you'll find quite a bit of information, even links to a couple of video teasers. But as for purchase, it's still in an Alpha version, so release...

    I'll have to agree with Michael and Pat, in that VR is just icing on the cake for what should be an actual simulation, working well on a normal monitor, and pretty much complete before they add VR*,...

    I haven't tried that one, but likely it's not backwards compatible. You can try it without hurting anything, if you back up anything you change, but I suspect you'll be disappointed.

    PFC (Precision Flight Controls) has some pretty good stuff, but it's expensive.

    The Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog is an excellent stick and throttle, including twin throttles, though for single...

    The quick answer is: You don't. Pilots in the old days didn't have those (or any) waypoints.

    All those waypoints are described only by the GPS. You will either need radar guidance, another NAV...

    This sounds great, if they can pull it off while still using a typical PC. It's difficult to believe they can do all this in real time on a PC, but if so it'll be great, provided of course that the...

    Thanks for the video links. There are some nice things to see, including no "slip/skid" (an odd sliding movement during and after a turn) that is so common in FS. Water and reflections look better...
