    To everybody who's tried and failed to install Windows 10: think yourself lucky. I "upgraded" my laptop from Windows 8.1. and after hours of messing around with it, getting more and more frustrated, I'm actually contemplating installing Windows 8 back on the laptop. Half the apps don't work because I don't have permission to write to files in my home directory, it's slow, Edge is worse than IE, and it even disabled my virus scanner (Kaspersky). No way will I contemplate "upgrading" Windows 7 on my desktop PC, the one I use for FSX.

    I upgraded my Win8.1 to Win10 using the MediaCreationToolx64.exe tool available from Microsoft. It was straightforward, although it did take a long time... 5 hours from clicking on the MediaCreationToolx64 tool, to seeing the Win10 desktop. I did have a lot of software already installed, so that's probably why my upgrade took so long, when others have seen it complete in 40 minutes.

    Had a bit more of a test in P3D of this. It seems to behave pretty much the same as in FSX. I thin the model is pretty good, although the PFD shows some colour bleed. This is a known issue, that I don't think was ever resolved, but the fix seems to be to load the "Aerosoft NabyHawks Default Start all systems running" , then re-position the helo where you want. Personally I think it's one of the better rotorcraft, I especially like the Stability Augmentation System (SAS)... makes it easier on known experts such as myself to hover.

    I'm no expert at flying, more a weekend flyer, but it felt okay, I didn't do much more though than take off and fly forward a bit. I can check it out more thoroughly later tonight, and then I'll check that the gauges function okay and I can land, have to work at my day job at the moment :-(

    I've installed the Aerosoft Seahawk/Jayhawk in P3D v2.5. Seems to work okay, looks very good as well. Haven't tested it thorougly, but as able to take off. The only problem I saw was with the ships, the Boxer wasn't displaying; I haven't looked into this too greatly, so I don't know if anybody else has seen this issue, or even found a solution.
