The sensation is so real that it beats FS hands
down for approximating real world flight. The handling is silky smooth
- no frame rate issues - although the controls are a tad over
sensitive. Trim works correctly in that as speed is lost in a trimmed
climb the trim becomes less effective and you need to wind more on.
You need trim too as the is no auto levelling of
the aircraft - it is completely neutrally stable - which most people
will think of as unstable.
I guess the best bit is that it's like flying
around the photo scenery UK but this level of detail is worldwide - at
least to Google's coverage.
Just over Aylesbury and heading north. Brilliant
for map reading practise as you don't have GPS or FSNav to cheat with!
Just heard this on SkyBlue FS Radio (Http://www.skyblueradio.com)
