Looking for a turboprop that can run on my lowly computer, any?

Digital Aviation Cheyenne - I think this one is really easy on frames. And it's a small turboprop. The bigger one would be J41, but that one's really hard on frames.

The DA Cheyenne should run quite well. And it's still a pretty darn good add-on even today

And I deleted the Trimble GPS and replaced it with the default FSX version. It's easy to do in the panel config.

The Kodiak is light on frames and can get in and out of about anywhere (although it is somewhat slow), the Turbine Duke is harder on the frame rates but the best GA Turboprop available for FSX IMHO .. .. ..G

It does have a GPS. A Trimble is still a GPS although an older specimen.Here's the manual: http://www.flyelite....imbleManual.pdf
Agreed. The Trimble in the DA Cheyenne (I only own the FS9 version) is fantastic. Exactly like the real thing.
