General Discussion / Re: Plan-G or Sim Launcher

Since I'm working from scratch and RTTM flight planning is upper most, I'll start getting acquainted with the suggested Plan-G version.


General Discussion / Plan-G or Sim Launcher
« on: January 26, 2013, 09:28:55 AM »
After much trial and error, I finally have:

1) Prepar3D install;

2) A working copy of P3D called "P3D PFJ RTTM" as a stand alone dedicated scenario.

To those using P3D, do you prefer Plan-G or Sim Launcher? I know there's a work around for Plan-G for use with P3D. I haven't used either yet; that's my next step.

Thanks for the look and any advice or insights.

To the list I'd add Aerosoft's PBY and the freeware Beech D-18S Amphibian. The Nardi model of the Seabee is also  a lot of fun to fly.

I also have several helicopters, but the one I'm most enamored with is the Gmax Bell-47 v2 w/floats coupled with a HoverControls cfg written specifically for it.

I've dusted off FSX, some ORBX files and Tongass X, signed up and walked thru the Dispatch door.

What a great site! I "should of, would of, could of" years ago but WWI, WWII, Korea, IL-2, Falcon 4, DCS, all had me flying and fighting.

What a pleasure to fly "low 'n slow" without getting blown out of sky or having to constantly "check 6".

Old habits do die hard though. I'll be using Plan-G as a kneeboard to navigate with for a while.
