  1. I am teetering on the brink of deciding to have a look at this. Thanks for the in-depth ongoing review process. Your opinions and input have been a great help to me over the recent months with regard to a number of purchases. Stephen, would it be possible for you to add your system specs to all your pieces? I did find a spec list on a different review, but I have to assume that that is the same system used when you reviewed/updated here. That way, the reader has a direct benchmark so to speak, relating directly to the review and its conditions. I know system heterogeneity is a real
  2. I guess the flight simulation community’s heart beats differently. We perhaps view such planes differently? The MD-11 has definitely something iconic about it and is definitely on my list of icons, headed by the DC-/C-47... I never actually set foot on the -11, I only flew in the predecessor DC10-30 that NWA used on some transatlantic routes. The aircraft is known to be a handful, it has had a number of accidents, it lands fast... In the sim, it was one of the best experiences I had with the fsx version by PMDG. I must have flown over 2 thousand sim hours on it, which is a lot for me. I
  3. Thanks for going to the effort of such an in-depth comparative review. I am fairly new to x-plane and am building a UK base as I have generally little time for long hops and I decided to go with Orbx TE. All parts are fairly large which limits what I can do. I only have a 750Gb SSD in my system for x-plane... Not or worth the money for such a mess... A
  4. I have this too, after reading good reviews. One point I must raise is that the Spitfire never had a locking tail wheel like the Mustang. It is free castoring, like supermarket trolley wheels. There is a cheat you can configure on this plane to do so, but that is not a Spitfire really... While this model is a welcome sight and beautifully crafted, there are a few problems that I have with it in the current 1.05 version. That LF will cut out at 10,000 ft or so, regardless of fuel cock, fuel pump settings, landing is like walking on eggshells, as it groundloops before you can even respond t
