Initial Thoughts with a couple of screen shots

Recommended Posts

Purchase, download, installation all very smooth. No crashes, disk errors or anything like that. I bought the premium edition from the Microsoft Store.

Controller was not recognized. Had to assign manually. Learning curve is high, not much help on how to do this. I'm sure it is frustrating for some.

Airports took a while to download. At first, my home airport was not installed (KRYY in Cobb County Georgia). Saw it after about 15 minutes.

Scenery is pretty amazing but in some cases not up to date. For example, I could see my office building (which was really cool) but Truist Park is not installed and neither is Mercedes Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta. You can see the old Turner field which is still there, and the Georgia Dome, which is not there anymore.

Weather was working for me.

KATL & KRYY are okay, but definitely not 3rd party quality. Control tower missing from KRYY

Frame rates doing a quick flight in the 172 were very good. Flew from KRYY to KATL. I do have a gig speed fiber connection so I'm sure that helps in this area.

I could definitely fly to KATL using visual reference. 

Took a longer flight in the 320 Neo from KATL to KORD:

ATC needs some work. Didn't get very good vectors. Ended up doing a visual approach to KORD.

The 320 is definitely not study level. Lots of inop controls. AP didn't seem to be very reliable. couldn't click on the FMS, etc. Basics are there but that was about it.

Frame rates were okay, even landing into KORD.

I'm excited for the future!
