I've had a go... hate the way the Stearman flies and I'm not too fond of Flight itself.

It's a game as opposed to a simulator, it only covers Hawaii (at the moment), it is not made for 3rd party add ons and it only comes with (correct me if Im wrong) 2 aircraft.

Will stick with FSX, but when the time comes (when FSX becomes out of date) I may well switch to X-Plane

Yeah, I forgot that I'd posted this on here but it's utter cr*p. When I first saw the ad when it was first announced it looked promising but it hasn't delivered. FSX for me too!

Agreed, although Im thinking of switching to another sim called 'Prepar3d' which looks better than FSX

And what's the multiplayer like?

Pretty much all FSX addons work with it, they bought the code for FSX off Microsoft

And I believe multiplayer is the same sort of thing

I wonder how their student licence holds up :)

$50 is cheap!

i have just got to grips with FSX with my touch screen, it makes life 'interesting'
