    I agree, at 500 ft PR isn't very good. At 3000 - 4000+ ft it's okay and in unfamiliar or unpopulated places Orbx and others work fine most of the time. I hope the kale thing works for you though, so you can see FS12 (Steam or P3D), 3d VR goggles, and 6+Ghz processors, but I'm nearing the third half of life and pizza and Hodad's are still on my list;-)

    It would be nice. Max speed 360 mph. An example of a good airframe done in by a less than stellar engine, but it was still good enough to take on the FW 190 on fairly equal terms at low altitude.

    I live about 9 miles east of heywooood so hi sort of neighbor. As stated before I've also spent a number of hours flying in and out of KSEE Gillespie Field and I like to see the area I live in look like the place I live in so I overlay MSE over Orbx, though the lack of 3d objects is sometimes a little disappointing when flying low and slow, it is not a deal breaker. Also, I will sometimes try out a real flight to a new location to get a feel of what to expect and maybe pick out the VFR waypoints or other VFR points. One other point I also stated before was that both stock and Orbx versions of KSEE are not that great so I made my own. (Self serving available at Avsim). I agree it's not up to payware standards, but it is a bit more accurate than the others.

    One other question. Are you getting high FPS one 1 monitor or spread over 2 or 3 or more monitors? I can get higher FPS on 1 monitor, but I like the wider view of 3 monitors. I know that seems kind of obvious, but we each have our own preferences.

    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.
