Spiffing. Bought this as well from the sale and can't wait to test. How are the crosswinds?

Awesome!
Btw, what scenery and add-ons to get that looking the way it does?

...I seriously need a new PC fast... :(

This is good old FSX-SE in DX10 mode with Steve's fixer.
FTX Norway with ORBX Narvik.. sky is AS16+ASCA.
I use different profiles in Simstarter, with quite high settings when flying VFR (and enjoying the scenery) and lower settings and reduced scenery coverage with big birds like the FSL A320 to save VAS. Works really well.

My rig is a 6 year old i7 2600k running at 4.2GHz, a GTX770oc 3GB, 8GB RAM and Win10.

If I wouldn't have to buy all the new liscences for P3D from 'other' addon developers I would have made the change to P3D already, but summing it all up it would be around 400-500 bucks to use the addons I already bought in P3D, and that's currently out of my comfort zone.

Ahaaa, that might be the difference I'm seeing. I've got ORBX Norway, but not Narvik. FSX-SE with DX10 and Steve's fixer here too.

I'm running a 3 year old Asus RoG G750JH laptop, i7 4700HQ CPU at 2.4 GHz (max 3.6 GHz Turbo Boost), NVIDIA GTX780M 4 Gb, 32 Gb RAM and Win10 64-bit.
Both CPU and GPU is ever so slightly oc'd, but not by much.
Running at max screen resolution at 1920x1080. It stutters a bit... :roll:

I've been looking at P3D myself, and it will happen at some point. But I would need to upgrade the SSD again, going for a 2 Tb performance drive instead of the 1 Tb I have now (my FSX-SE install alone is 260 Gb...), so I could have both FSX-SE and P3D installed, so I'd have to fork over a few bucks. In addition to the cost of P3D, of course.

I flew into that airfield with the PMDG J-4100…I made it but my take away was "If they didn't want you to use the WHOLE runway, they wouldn't have paved the whole thing." :shock:

Great pics! I think I'll try the MILVIZ Beaver next time. :D
