    I've seen a number of people in various forums saying how they get 30, 40, even 50+ FPS. The last time I went to a movie it was shown at 24 FPS and I didn't notice any stutter at all. (Yes I know they are using digital projectors now.) But having said that, the question is, is 50 FPS really more than twice as good as 24 FPS? Does the eye/brain really notice the difference? I suppose in some way it does, but...

    The general way to do this is to climb or descend to the desired altitude and hold it with the yoke/stick, maintain the power setting until the desired airspeed is reached and then adjust the power to maintain that speed and trim to relieve the pressure on the yoke/stick to fly level at that altitude. Very small adjustments my be necessary to maintain this. In a small plane like a Cessna 172 I have found that it can be quite easy to trim by visual means by using the combination of, if the nose goes up the trim wheel goes up and if the nose goes down the trim wheel goes down. If you set your controller up this way and remember which is which it's pretty easy. A rocker switch makes this easier. It can be set under Settings, Controller.

    I'm not really familiar with P3D, but I'd guess something like ADE can be used to change the elevation of the object or delete it.

    I have both 32 and 64 bit Windows 10 and have installed CFS 1, CFS 3 and FS 9 on the 32 bit machine under C:/Microsoft Games/ and with some tweaking they seem to run fairly normally. On the 64 bit machine I have installed CFS 2, and CFS 3, and FSX. The CFS's seem to need the no CD fix to run on this machine otherwise they won't start. If I start FSX in windowed mode (for the load and exit screens) and then switch to full screen it's okay, but I have to remember to switch back to windowed mode before exiting.

    Here are some screen shots of MegaScenery and Orbx. MegaScenery loses the autogen scenery but keeps the underlying road traffic from Orbx.

    I bought Orbx SCA and felt the scenery in the city was a little generic so I overlayed Megascenery on it and the combination works pretty well adding some nice features. I use my own Gillespie Field as the Orbx version isn't really any more accurate than the stock version. You can fly quite a lot of San Diego without getting clearances. The VFR corridor over San Diego Bay is really nice on a clear sunny day.
