DCS gets old real fast if you don't enjoy flying over the same few, limited maps over and over again. It's a combat sim and it does just that very well but for GA you can't even compare it to FSX/P3D.

DCS, like Falcon, is good if flying combat and learning weapon delivery and stuff is your thing. It's fun if you have a buddy who likes that stuff too and you pair up over teamspeak and do all that combat stuff realistically. I used to do that years ago with a friend who was in the RAF, so he knew about all that weapon stuff properly; it was very educational. So if I ever end up in a parallel universe and get asked to carry out a durandal attack on a runway or out-turn an SA-6 or something, it'll be a piece of cake lol.

Thanks for the info regarding Ant's Airplanes - never knew such developer existed. Especially the Eaglet interests me since the Rotax 912 is what I fly!

Aircraft such as the Eaglet, Sierra, Ikarus and other very light aeroplanes which use engines such as the Rotax 912 are becoming increasingly common choices for PPL training because they are much cheaper to operate. The chances are pretty good that anyone doing a PPL these days will find themselves sat in something like that rather than a Piper or Cessna.

To digress, Krister - you may want to investigate the nice little Aerospool WT-9 Dynamic by Lionheart Creations - it too uses a Rotax 912. I like it - it seems to fly as you'd expect (layman's opinion), trims out beautifully, but then again the real one is used as a glider tug so I would think some stability is a good thing.

Thanks Mark!  We had the Dynamic at the flight school so it certainly sounds interesting. P3D v4 isn't mentioned though on their website!

Happy New Year, folks!

I have a LOT of addons, lots of them cheap, that I never fly. The A2A birds, however, are constant companions when i'm simmin. I don't regret a single purchase, and the P3D-compatible versions work great in Prepar3d v4.

Just bought the Connie tonight.

If you're wondering if they're value for money, in my opinion, absolutely.
