As to the add ons just read through this thread, its all been talked about a few times.
You would certainly want a joystick for this. I wouldn't even bother trying to use a keyboard. There's some missions in FSX but its mostly about getting in a plane and going for a flight, so the pace is up to you.
Thank you for your reply. So will the be "playable" at 1920x1200 @ Max Quality with addons? Im running Xp Pro 32bit.
What I meant by pace was that does it feel if the planes are fast? I got fairly bored due to the planes feeling really slow, even though I was plummeting down at 90oc
So is the X52 pro the way to go?
