Ecluse winery in Paso Robles, CA

 

I love Paso Robles wine!  I have a favorite and I'm NOT saying what it is out loud.  :)  But, I'll try Ecluse.

Yeah...game changer.

 


ORBX KBHB Bar Harbor, ME

 

I bought that but haven't flown there yet.  Waiting for an airplane to take in there.

 


FTX Global OpenLC NA

 

Another game changer.  Seriously makes flying over the US nice.

I bet you'll enjoy it. Steve Lock's a great winemaker and also a pilot.  :smile:

FSLabs A320 wins hands down

 

I'm intrigued by it but the performance thing has me nervous.

KRDU is nice.  I didn't get the iFly 747 because I heard it was tough on frames.  Is it?

I've flown the T7 and NGX into RDU and the FPS remained in the 25 to 30 FPS area for me, not sure how the iFly 747 is on performance though.

The only thing I will do is downsize some of the larger textures to 1024, but VAS and FPS were ok. It was actually on sale over the holidays but too late now.
