I hear you Ryan. I want this bird bad, but I'm sick of being beaten up by the euro.I'll problably end up buying it because it's made by RealAir.But my gut instinct is just to pass and wait untill Oleg releases Battle of Britain: Storm of War later this year. Then I can have several aircraft from that period for around the same price and I can do more with it than just fly around.But the temptation to fly this thing around the Reno course will problably win the day.

Hiif you can stretch to it,it's every bit as good as i thought it would be..actually bought a lump to my throat(don't ask me why i was shocked at my reaction)possibly becuse i can see it has been a labour of love by these guys..it is an amazing aircraft,bought loads of payware,aerosoft twotter,PMDG 747X,realair 260,super80 and LD767,none has effected me like this Spitfire X. steve

"Dang it looks awesome, though the Euro is killing the dollar right now"I completely sympathise with that statement. If you only knew what agonies we went through trying to negotiate the currency exchange problems currently unfolding. In real terms, not just ours, many addons are in Europe about the same price they were seven years ago, despite inflation.But unfortunately either the Euro is excessively high or the dollar is excessively low (I'm not taking sides). Either way our US customers are finding foreign goods expensive at the moment. I really hope that changes soon.Best Wishes,Rob Young - RealAir Simulations

One thing without a doubt, since it's RealAir it will be perfect. And the conversion rates aren't their fault.

Well, Bill - I don't know whether to laugh or to cry! I've just had one of the best one-hours' flying sessions in a long time - just doing circuits - some with a bit o' crosswind, plus a few aerobatics over your KRDG! I didn't do it in the 14 - it's just not the light, nimble aeroplane that the 9 is! (I did some, just to get the "feel" admitedly, but it behaves just like the 2004 version with a better slip/spin character). :D I'm astounded that the RealAir team has managed to make the handling so different one to the other. If this is how the r/w Mk.IX behaved I now understand the legendary "hype". It truly is a magnificent aircraft to fly, and so it's now likely that its Big Brother will become a Hangar Queen! :-lolThe crying part is a little tougher to articulate, though: I have a pretty warm machine: use the /3gig mod; use Ken Salter's "Alacrity" but I just had to pull back many of my settings - no traffic, lowest water, minimal clouds, etc.. :-hmmm Compared to all my other aircraft - I think this one is "somewhat" of a frame hog. It's pushing the envelope: I can't say more than that, because, like many others - I've had my share of crashes, OOM's and even with constant defragging and reg cleaning - one can never get back to a "clean" registry unless the OS is rebuilt, and so the pc becomes progressively less capable - but that's what I think I have to do. Nobody said success came easily!But this is sure one great package, and will, just as did the 2004 version, be regarded as a standard of excellence in the Sim community. And a great Biggin Hill, by the way! Many thanks.:-beerchug

Incredible. Not typically how I fly, but most definitely a unique experience. As someone who typically navigates with all the modern gauges we become so accustomed to, this is a true challenge in many respects.Beautifully done....will just make you go 'wow'....and per a post above, I'm getting great frame rates, as usual for RA products.....OK....bring on the Duke! :D

I'm encouraged and am doing a full defrag on the drives right now. I hope it's just my system.

It's the quality I've come to expect from RealAir. I've been waiting for this bird for a long, long time. I flew it just once so far with the included scenery, and I was totally impressed.If you read this, Rob, thanks again. It was worth the wait.Stan

A dumb question - to qualify for the upgrade, how does the process work? I have the FS2004 version installed on my old PC - does Realair check that I have ordered it using their records (which would work for me), or does the installer look for it during the installation (which wouldn't)?

I suspect that you have a video card with not enough memory? So you may be decreasing all settings taxing the CPU when it

I just ran the installer, entered my email and password, then the key code, and that was that. Even though I own the 2004 version I almost bought the full FSX version just to give these guys a little more, but with the exchange rate it was a bit too pretty spendy for that. The RealAir Spitfire was my first ever add on purchase for FS, and to this day its still my favorite. Nothing I have purchased since has lived up to experience of the RealAir spit. I've spent a lot of money loioking for the next best add on, but never found one that could top either the Spit or the SF260. Now that the FSX version is out it will no doubt remain on the throne for a long time to come. While I have not loaded up my new beast/baby yet, I know its going to blow me away. Thank you very much Rob and Sean for creating what is to me the best add on in the history of flight sim. I am quite certain nobody out there can top you guys, at least in my mind. Truly a masterpiece and the pinnacle crowning star of FS aircraft design.

Hear, Hear!!! I will love the Duke, especially since RealAir has a history of its planes functioning perfectly in shared cockpit...Best Regards, Donald T. :-waveFLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

I'm having a hard time comprehending the beauty and perfection of this package, and I've only flown one plane. lol The sound, visuals and flight model - I guess thats the whole plane - stand out as the most highly refined I have seen. I simply love the sound and the texture art is amazing. I've taken a liking to this guy.http://sio.midco.net/silly22/fsxspit1low2.jpg
