Ok..here's a pretty simple question...Is paying the extra cash for Pro Fsim worth it? I'm not gonna be editing planes or airports, all I use it for is...well...flying. Are there any extra advantages besides the plane editor and the 3 extra planes?
I know this topic has been started once before (at least I only found one on the search...) but it didn't have much info...

If you like turboprops you need the Pro version as the Std version does not support them.
The Pro version also has some more aircraft (though I almost never fly the defaults anymore) and gauges (which are often used in addon aircraft panels as well).
The main advantage is the turboprop flight model (without which you cannot use the fabulous DHC-6 Twin Otter by Barry Blaisdell) and some extra gauges that many freeware panels use.
