Still finding a use for FU3

Recommended Posts

I dunno about anybody else, but I still find one solid use for FU3: The Stemme. It just gives me such a satisfying soaring simulation that I have yet to replicate in any other sim. Even with FSX (finally) having thermals built into the sim, you still have to artifically place the gliders into the air. And while X-Plane does do towed take offs and glides, nobody has yet to fully replicate the Stemme. I mean, there is a highly-detailed version of it in the file libraries, but nobody has figured out how to fully simulate stopping the engine, braking it, and then tucking it inside the nosecone.


It's just such a satisfying motorglider to fly in, and only FU3 seems to offer a full experience with this wonderful craft.


Only problem I have nowadays, with the sim running in Vista, is the ATC window. When I bring it up my FPS drops to like 1 or so. Anybody have any ideas how to fix that?
