Thanks Simbio.

Did you notice any improvement regarding lag/refresh/update times.  Is there anything noticeably different from using vPilot?

 

cheers

Well we talk about software developed by volunteers check this video LoL yesthe interface is old but it works.

I didn't have any problem so far no lag no refresh etc the only aspect is to build the model matching that can be difficult.

Flying in XP is another dimension, view xsquawkbox was a nightmare for me.

I feel to back when fsinnwas working well and it was the best.

I find it bizarre that anyone developing anything for 6 years should have a bad UI.  If we have learned anything in the flightsim world, be it P3D or XP, its that people hate bad, clunky UI's 

Seems this might be more of a step up for from xSqawkbox than it will be from vPilot.

Also, did you notice whether AI models have rotating nose wheels?  This is one aspect i dislike about vPilot. Aircraft turns on the ground and the nosewheel is static.

IT works well. The model matching could use some work. It's quite complicated to get figured out compared to other clients out there. The only thing I don't like is the radar only has a north orientation mode. It's confusing when in flight. I hope they add a heading orientation mode so you can see if aircraft are behind or in front of you easily. For Xplane, it's a nice alternative to Xsquawkbox. Take Care..
