FlightSimLabs A321-X: The FSElite First Look

FlightSimLabs A321 X The FSElite First Look
I have used other aircraft comparable to the FlightSimLabs A321-X, but no other developer has even come close as what FlightSimLabs does with this Airbus aircraft. I have used other aircraft within the same price range, a number of them I might add, and none of them immerses me in the cockpit with the same quality sounds, visuals and system

[SAH] Some of the Best Orbx Products Available for FSX, P3D, XPL and AeroFly FS 2

As the world continues to pull through as a global community against the pandemic known as Coronavirus, we are supporting simmers across the world with our newly released Stay at Home Community Hub. As part of that, we’re taking the time to look at ways to help you find new products or teach those new to flight simulation where to begin that experience. In this series of content, we will be giving you route ideas, looking at some of the best products from certain developers and more. 

As new people join the flight simulation community, we wanted to take a look at some of the best possible products currently available to simmers. Whether you’re new to the hobby or looking to expand your horizons, Orbx products are some of the best scenery products to transform your simulator.

This is purely an opinion piece from myself. It doesn’t reflect what the rest of the FSElite team think about their favourite products, and of course, your favourites will also differ. I encourage you to write down in the comment section your favourites or if there are any you agree with.

A quick reminder that many of these products are currently on sale with up to 50% off at Orbx.

Another reminder is that we are holding a competition for you to win a free Orbx product from their collection. You can check out details on how to enter on our previous Challenge of the Day post.

Whilst there are many developers out there supporting the flight simulation community, Orbx provides the community opportunities across the globe to take in scenic views across varied landscapes. From the chilly mountains of the Alps near the challenging Innsbruck Airport to the scorching plains of South Africa. Orbx is known for their quality and ambitious products.

PMDG 737 NGXu Base Pack: The FSElite Review

REVIEW Pmdg 737 Ngxu Base Pack
Initially, PMDG sent the community into a bit of a panic when they announced that the long-awaited and fabled NG3 would instead be heading to Microsoft Flight Simulator and not to Prepar3D. At the time, the product named NGXu was never known to the community until a few hours after the initial announcement. Whether you think it was PR suicide
