FSX Acceleration Only
Dino's F-35 is very good:http://secure.simmarket.com/dino-cattaneo-f-35_a-b-c-lightning-ii-project.phtml

Aerosoft F-16:http://secure.simmarket.com/aerosoft-online-f-16-fighting-falcon-x.phtml

I would only recommend the IRIS F-22 to anybody that has the best joysticks and systems.I regret this purchase.here:http://secure.simmarket.com/iris-platinum-series-f-22-raptor.phtml

NEVER EVER get the Captain Sim Weapon For FSX ONLY if you know how to adjust and code the aircraft.cfg file.Its not even that great anyway.

Virtuavia is junk, don't get anything.

F-35=Good=Avioncs, Radar, Model, VC, Flight Dynamics, Working Hover bla,bla,bla.Bad=Sound.Most likely has the best value for the money. :D

Aerosoft F-16:Good=model,panel,sound,textures,selection,all the variants, 8-) Bad:Can't friggin find out how to start it and it needs TrackIR, a hundred dollar addon. >:(Not happening.

IRIS F-22:Good=VC,Radar,Accurate Model and Textures :).Bad:Afterburner doesn't have long belches of flame (although realistic :o) and the flight dynamics are a bit off :'(.You just can't simulate an F-22 in FSX.
:) Enjoy

I have quite a lot of payware for FSX and out of them there are some I always go back to and some I just don't use.

The ones I always find me self wanting to use are;

A2A Spitfire with Accusim -I would recommend anything by them to be honest, personally I am waiting for the P-51 civilian version to come out before I buy another aircraft from them, mainly because as good as the Spitfire is I use it mainly for a 30min quick fly around the area and land aircraft because of it's lack of NAV gear and amount of constant supervision you have to give it. I feel I will get far more use out of the civilian P-51 as I will be able to use it as a standard GA aircraft.

PMDG 737NGX and 747 - simply the best airliner simulation you going to get.

Carenado Skymaster, C340, C152, C208- To be honest I could probably buy everything by Carenado and love all of them but a lot are very similar for example a C340 is pretty much the same as the C90B and the

If you read the list, all of them are up there all ready ;)


True but is there a problem with giving my opinion to help back up the remarks of other people?

If I were buying more payware I would like the opinion of more than one person to go off.

Your comment seems a little off hand, if I am not allowed to give my opinion just because someone else has said it I will find a more friendly forum.

I'm suprised no one here has mentioned the RAZBAM F-201 Kestrel or the Vertigo Studios F8F Bearcat. These are some really good aircraft.

Scenery wise - Rex, UTX, FTX, GEX are all things I couldn't really live without.

I like Alabeo's ag planes (Ag Truck and Pawnee Brave) a lot. They have great model detail, and while I don't have any experience in a PA-36 I can vouch for the C188's performance accuracy. My only complaint about these two models is the IO-720 in the PA-36 does NOT sound like the putt-putt-putt, almost radial sound that real 720's make.

I like Lionheart Creations' offerings too. I bought a package from PC Aviator that included the DA-40, Aerospool WT-9 Dynamic, Epic Dynasty (LT) and Epic Victory VLJ. I think the package ran about $60 for the four planes, and I got 50% off. I spend a lot of time in these planes. I also have LHC's Tailwind W8/W10, and Pacer/Tripacer. I really like these models too, and fly them quite a bit, My only complaint about these models is that I could do without any religious proselytizing in my payware.

I like A2A's Cub.

I like most Carenado planes too. I had the 185 on a previous system, but I don't currently have it installed.

I like Traffic 360 once you get it working correctly. It was kind of a hassle to tweak though.

Lastly, I will admit that I like to fly ND's SA-2 Samson. Its kind of dorky, but the modeling is great, and damn near every switch and button works and does what it is labeled to do. There are some peculiarities that I didn't always like (if you don't keep the pressure/temperature in the cabin managed, the windshield will fog up) but they've grown on me after a while.

I also like ND's Defender and Area 51's MH-47.

What I don't like :
Abacus. FSD.
