Can't wait for DX10, 17% boost from what I read. Bring on SP2.

That's widely regarded as the absolute best add on aircraft ever made, and it has the undisputed best flight model of any aircraft for any version of flight sim.

Rob Young sets the benchmark for flight model programming, and RealAir also has the absolute best and smoothest gauges of any developer. I cannot wait for the FSX version of their Spitfire.

If anybody buys only one add on for flight sim, the SF260 is what I would recommend.

Just for fun I like to go into the aircraft.cfg and increase the cyclinder displacement a tad for a bit more power.

The Marchetti is definately my favorite FSX aircraft for touring. It features excellent ****pit visibility, decent range, and a nice cruise speed all in a highly aerobatic package.

That thing is fun to fly east through the Grand Canyon, departing from Las Vegas at 6am. The bump mapping on it's wings is just beautiful at dusk and dawn.

Air Combat USA uses them, and some militaries use them as trainers. I'd love to take some of those AC classes.

Here is an awesome panel mod if you use the left seat version. It adds shadows to the gauges, but since it uses the same texture for both leftand right, the shadows are in the wrong place for the right seat version.

Search the fsx section in the avsim library for "sf260" and you will see it.

Never used FEX, but I did buy X-Graphics from Hi-Fi Simulations and I love it. It really adds alot to the sim.

I guess so its consistent with all the other threads, though its not really a feedback thread this late in the game, its just the official thread. So the old name was more appropriate, but less consistent. lol

A couple of shots using FEX - I'm still finding my way around it, so so far it looks great with some stunning cloud and water textures.

I'll post some more later.
