    Try F3 in case you've turned the view off by mistake.

    One of the biggest complaints I get about X-Plane 10 are the many undefined airports that scattered all over X-Plane. Well finally someone took upon themselves to fix the problem. The good news is that it is totally FREE! See the pics at the bottom of this site. http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=27582 You will need to add this and it is FREE as well: http://www.opensceneryx.com/2015/05/opensceneryx-2-1-1-released/ Enjoy, Ted

    I used to do contract work for Dell Systems, the Dell X51 is not truly a Dell product, it was originally Alienware and they built some very fine gaming systems. Dereck was my contact there he left when Dell bought Alienware but they still use a lot of the same Alienware engineers and techs so as far as I know it is still a fine game system. Ted

    Lovely job, Gordon and team! The weight of the two big radials is obvious on a first flight and she flies very nicely. What I really like apart from the gorgeous model is the view from the cockpit: this is going to be lots of fun on VFR flights, which is how I mostly fly FSX. Hats off, Milton! :encouragement:

    Been a long time since we last saw this one. Check your antivirus in case it has removed common.dll and restore it from quarantine to the main CFS3 directory if it has.

    Mason gives some good advice here. FSX definitely works better in the 4.0GHZ area, but another thing to consider for future use is 4GB of Vram on the video card you purchase. 64 bit X-Plane 10.3 now requires it for the new HDGLOBAL scenery, and it is AMAZING! While FSX is more CPU intensive more scenery is coming out monthly and there are plans for new 64 bit flight simulation software to be developed...so future proof your machine as much as possible.

    Regarding airflow in the cowling, I may have got my info wonky. The airflow entered the engine bay central area and flowed outwards around the cylinder heads, but the annular oil cooler just behind the spinner did have air drawn forward from there to cool the oil. There was therefore a measure of air recirculation going on, before the hot air exited the rear cowling. Now back to the bad kitty!

    I build gaming units for a living but shipping and insurance is just to too expensive, so I only build locally now. However I agree with Willy. You can get some great deals through IBUYPOWER, newegg.com, etc.,just look for complete units. You won't need to spend $2000 to run FSX at DX10. There are some things you need to know as far as what components allow you to run at DX10 levels and keep in mind that one day you might want P3D or X-Plane. There's lots of friendly folks on here to help you pick the parts you need. I would go with WIN 10 i7 64bit system since you have at least that much $$$ available. Start here for newegg.com to give you an idea of what is available. Also look up IBUYPOWER they have a game system configurator and give you the complete price plus shipping if any....

    Regarding spinners and other fighters, the Fw190A series had a fan behind the spinner and was extremely effective at cooling. The airflow inside the cowling was directed so it actually flowed forward between the BMW's cylinders afaik. Hard to imagine but the designer was one of the best of his era. Oh Daan, streamlined airflow is not as efficient a coolant as turbulent air, but turbulent causes more drag: the continual engineering problem of trade-off!
