Orbx RV-4 - Question For Users

Recommended Posts

It certainly looks like a lot of fun, but from what I've read it's bad on framerates.


Can someone who already has it please give some more info, i.e. their system specs/addon scenery/weather conditions and the framerates they are getting with the RV-4?


I'm almost ready to buy but am wary of the reported framerate issues.

I picked it up last night, and spent about 30 minutes with it in vanilla P3Dv2 not expecting good fps, but was pleasantly surprised. On my aging rig (I7 930 stock, 6GB RAM, 1GB ATI 5870) was getting basically the same fps as the only other plane I've tried (Carenado A36) mostly around 25-30 flying around Seattle. There are a couple of pages in the EFIS that cause my fps to drop by ~10 when I'm on them, but that's easy enough for me to avoid.


I'd say go for it if you're using P3D, but I'd wait for more input if it's FSX.
