Years ago it was easy to find a light aircraft throttle, prop, mixture controller at an entry-level price. Today, they are harder to find and often when you do, the price has increased to what you would pay for a top-tier FAA approved component. This of course is retailers and second-hand sellers taking advantage of the new surge of interest in Flight Simulation.

But now there is hope in getting one for $200 and below. This is made possible by Flight Sim Stuff. They offer handmade 3D printed, plug and play USB controllers.

Lets talk about Latin VFR’s AREX addon for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Overall Summary
Bottom line, LatinVFR has developed new ground vehicle models with a good configuration tool for ground servicing. It works great, and the liveries look good, but it costs about $10. I think that’s a little steep, let’s talk about why.

Drzewiecki Design recently released their latest edition to their city landmark series for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator, this time taking on the city of Seattle. I, myself, a resident of Seattle, wanted to pick this scenery up immediately, and explore.

Bottom line, the developer set a target of improving the modeling of the Seattle area, and they largely succeeded in accomplishing that goal. The modeling of the buildings and infrastructure is a significant upgrade over what default brings you. It commands a price of 15 Euros, or about 18 US Dollars, which is a lot compared to what other sceneries are usually priced in the market, but the scenery comes with a lot, so if you’re a Seattle flyer, definitely pick this up. Let’s talk about why.
