So....in these trying times when many of us are confined to home (more flight sim time!!) because of circumstances, I am wondering who has study sims (and actually DOES study them!) and who flits from plane to plane?

I must admit that I am more if a 'flitter' with spending a bit of time on one plane then moving to another.  I do have a few study sims, but usually end up getting frustrated with them!!

Cheers and stay safe!

I started really getting into the A2A c172 after flying in South Africa IRL. Apart from that I was a 'flitter'.

Now I have rebuilt Flight Sim PC with P3dv5 and Aerosoft A318-21 installed, I'm probably going to try and start learning it from scratch.  Unfortunately, A2A won't offer any discount (not even a measily fiver) on a p3d version so stuff them... they've lost my business,  well, for the moment at least..

Yep...some people can be really stingy.  Would think that they would a bit more generous these days, with a lot of businesses going under!

I have a new PC now which is much better performance.  I recently bought the Aerosoft CRJ, which is quite an in depth sim.  I am enjoying....it is a plane I flew in a few times between Indy and Chicago. Happy memories.  :)

I've always liked Aerosoft products and the immense amount of help and support I've had from their customer service team (Tom Flashman gets a shout out here) whilst trying to move my FSX products across to P3DV5 means they will certainly be getting my business going forward. 

I do, however, have an embarrassingly large pile of software that I now have to figure out whether I can ever use it with P3D or if I'll have to say goodbye to it. :blink2:

Enjoy the CRJ :)

Thanks!  Aerosoft do indeed do good stuff.  I have a few military aircraft of theirs too. ;)

I know what you mean about FSX stuff that is not compatible with PD3.  I do have a softspoft for FSX, so may try it again on my new PC.  I miss the CaptainSim Boeing 707 and C-130!

I am on PD3 V3, but hope to move up to V4 soon. (I don't think my pc will handle V5).  How is the C-130 Hercules and F-16 on P3D v4 and 5?

Take care and stay safe.

I'm still struggling with P3Dv5 - spend most of my time with it trying to combat weird scenery glitches, and planes that don't work (plus a UI that makes Slow and Unresponsive into a new artform!) My actual flying is still done in v4.5...

Flight sims are too much fun to stick with one aircraft for too long, that's not to say I don't take the time to learn the checklists and try to fly by the book. Airliners of course take more time than GA yet give more back in pride if one has the time. If time is limited I am not beyond Control+E and taking a spin with no rules but my own.:pilotic:

You and me both, Steph.  :yikes:

It bothers me actually. I often think I need to be less 'flittish' and complete my study of the study sim.

I know what you mean...I find it hard to contrate on just one when there are so many 'new toys' in the hanger.

I sometimes buy stuff and then it sits around for sometime before it gets tried!  Am I normal...??:whis:

More normal than me !!  :wacko2:

I have bought stuff and never used it.  My first download was for Juneau in FS8 days. Ah well, such is life.
