    Here is an X-Plane 11 cinematic video, a tribute to all X-Plane fans. It took me 6 hours in total to create those 2:12 minutes. Enjoy the show!Q8Pilot videos are powered by VirtualFly (https://www.virtual-fly.com/)

    This really is an amazing simulation!

    You know, even when it's not beautiful, it's beautiful. I just did an MD-80 flight from KBWI to KISP in real weather - July haze - and the view out the window was so realistic, I had to keep telling myself I was in the sim. Not having that experience in P3D these days. I've experimented with X-Plane in the past but now I think I'm on the way to becoming a convert. Either it's reached critical mass or - more likely - I have. Looking forward to more explorations.

    Big Q8 Pilot fan, by the way, but hadn't seen this one - thanks for posting.

    I agree. There is so much depth to X-Plane 11 and now the freeware is catching up with the pay sites...especially in the scenery!

    I'm giving it a run.
    Probably as I'm really fed up with FSX, and I just want to look into a whole different sim.
    Still keeping up with P3D of course, but X Plane is a sim that I've tinkered with over the years and XP11 seems to be more user friendly than (for example) XP7.

    Wombat! What's up man, loong time!

    I'm here, too. FSX will remain for some time, but I'm getting deeper and deeper into XP. There are so many things it does so right, and a few misses. It's hard to decide, but the addon library I have for FSX definitely keeps it alive moreso.

    I am really digging XP, though. I wish a few things were better, but their Dev seems involved, sadly, unlike MS with just dumping FSX even after it was a reasonably good success.

    Off to try to get some time in.

    I look at FSX as that wonderful childhood friend you move away from; always missed, always loved, but an anachronism of the past best left there and enjoyed in fond memories. My but we have grown...

    That's very well put. X-Plane does have some truly awesome things going for it.
