1) no. point releases are free - 2.1, 2.x, 3.01, 3.1 etc. major releases 2, 3, 4 are not free, but discounted for existing customers2) i think the consensus is, no3) i suggest you download the manual, and decide for yourself. fs9 was a big improvement over fs8. they basically added about 10 features. those features were already in rc v2.x, and 3.x trumped fs9. just my opinion, most people here would probably agree. some may not. you will have to decide.jd

Bo,v4 will not be released for a loooooooooong time.V4 will actually handle AI and make it easier to get you in and out of airports, and will vector both you and them enroute. V4 is also going for handling sequencing. V4 will also handle the UT traffic and callsigns. V4 MAY have the larger airport names instead of ICAO codes.If you know real ATC, FS is nothing like it. It is very poor. RC is developed with real controllers (both in the US and England), so it's far nmore realistic. RC also has better calls, more realistic for the countries: i.e. QNH and Control in Europe, Altimeter and Center in the US, etc. Not only that, RC has 10 controllers and numerous separate pilots, where FS has 10 total voices, which gets annoying to hear them making the ATC and pilot calls with the same voice.RC is just vastly better. Now, if your goal is VFR, RC does not have that yet.
