best Airbus 320 plugin/software?

Recommended Posts

Hello

What would be the most realistic Airbus 320 plugin/software for Flight Simulator X.   Due to a limited budget, my home PC does not meet FS 2020 requirements, and I have to use FSX, which I am being told is still a great program.

 

Any help is appreciated.  Thank you

FSlabs A320 it's the best of the best. You get what you pay for.

One of these three in the video below which I made specifically to answer this question, depending on your budget and hardware, and sim, the choice it yours. The FSL one is hardest on your system but the most realistic and also the most expensive, the other two - Black Box Simulations and Aerosoft - are about the same in terms of price and system usage (be careful if you choose the Aerosoft one, their most recent ones are P3D only, so make sure you look up the right one, which is the older offering). The Black Box one has a free demo, so it'll cost you nothing to try that one out and see if you like it. It's pretty good for the price. BB come in for a bit of stick from some people, but I've got most of their Airbuses and they are not as bad as some people would have you believe. The Aerosoft one is pretty good too, but if you like doing emergency procedures and all that malarkey, the FSL is the one to have:

If you are into 2D panels, you got 2 payware options only: either BlackBox or FSL. Blackbox simulates the old CRT displays, while FSL (and Aerosoft) simulate the new ones. Blackbox simulates the whole lineup (A318 to A321, without sharklets), while FSL is available in FSX for the A320 only (i.e., no A319 or A321), and won't have sharklets. Aerosoft has no 2D panels, just a VC*. That's why I'm sometimes thinking about upgrading to FSL.

Well, there's also Wilco, they simulate also the whole lineup, also have 2D panels, but that's a port from FS9. I left them for BlackBox for the widebodies, and for Aerosoft for the narrowbodies.

*but they simulate the newer LCD displays, and do have sharklets (although just for appearance).

XP11 Vulkan installed, but not yet tried. Will MSFS2020 run? If so, what do I do with 5 sims then?
