  1. You should be very pleased with the performance you get from this beast. You should be able to run with most sliders wide open... John

    New build for P3D

    I set up a new rig custom built to run P3dV4. After decades of flying MS flightsim products I made this switch just few months ago and have not looked back. Worth every penny. No ooms and great performance FPS as Jim mentioned. Most of my scenery sliders are almost maxed.

  3. Thanks, I also notice that the manual refers to FSX and also the Q400 version I bought was for P3DV1, not V2 which is the sim I use. I wonder if these points makes much difference?
  4. Having trouble getting the ailerons plus mouse option to work on my Q400 in P3DV4. I set it on the control panel and click '"apply" but cannot get it to work on the aircraft. What am I doing wrong? The only way I can get sharp turns is using the mouse on the steering tiller--kinda cumbersome.. JOHN

    FSX to P3D V3 or V4

    I think your specs are fine for V4. I recently made the jump from FSX to V4 after decades of flying Microsoft flight sims. What a huge difference, and no ooms! Most of my add-ons for scenery and aircraft transfered over without much trouble at all. I think you'll be very pleased. JOHN

    Great to see this. Dad flew 93 missions in one of these in WW2. John

    P3D4.2 Terrain

    Not sure I understand your question but I'm running P3dV4 with all sliders maxed out and getting an average of 50fps. i7-8700k GTX 1080ti 32GB Ram 2TB SSD Samsung John
  8. Love it! Would also really like to see shots down the Thames with all the London autogen.

    P3dV4.2 Scenery Library

    Not on the opening screen. Load a flight, even the default flight, and you'll find a menu bar at the top. Click on "World" and scroll down to "Scenery Library" John

    Paris, Orly to Leipzig/Halle

    great screenshots!
  11. Wonderful choice of screen shots. Bolzano one of the more exciting places to fly in northern Italy. John

    SSD hard drive running low

    Good question. At 20% free space I notice performance slowing down.
  13. Very Impressive! As real as it gets! JOHN AUSTIN,TX

    On average, how much time do you take to get into the air?

    Airline flights take longer of course. Route planning, FMC loading, weather briefing, aircraft loading and startup from cold and dark, and sometimes long taxis. GA VFR flights don't take as long to get off the ground, even from cold and dark state. I do these when my sim time is limited. I enjoy them both! JOHN
