Do you feel that you get the most of flightsim with all the realisum settings turned up? I find since it is a SIM and there are sum things you just can do in the world of sims and since I fly with a joystick, I just leave iteams such as "P-factor" and the other aerodynamic factors off, and everything else on. How about you? Oh yea and I leave off the "crash when hit another a/c" never know what the AI is up and an uncontrolled field.

I set all my settings to as real as possible except at places like NRT and SIN where I have crashes off mode. I try to simulate real life as much as possible but I hate it when ATC make you hit other aircraft whilst taxiing etc...

I have everything turned on with two exceptions: aircraft overstress and collisions with other aircraft.

Overstress was turned off after I was flying along on a long (LA-Hawaii) flight, and the wind suddenly shifted. Suddenly, my normal .82 mach speed was bumped up to .93 mach. The autothrottles faithfully decreased right away to compensate, but could not get the speed back to below the .86 max mach number before the plane overstressed and crashed. Seeing as those kinds of incidents are the only times I ever get into overspeed or overstress, I just leave it turned off, and protect my hair.

Collisions with aircraft were turned off for protection from idiots in multiplayer, but I'm too lazy to switch them back and forth, so they stay off. I can trust myself not to hit any AI traffic or anything.

The wind changed for me as well when I was going from LAX to Vegas. Very annoying.

I have everything on the most realism except aircraft overstress, collisions with other aircraft (a nightmare when holding for 27R at LHR with 10 other AI aircraft!) and gyro drift which I have not yet got to grips with.

Gyro drift is easily dealt with in FS. Press 'D' to set the DI in sync with the compass. I'm fairly certain that gyro drift will only affect the aircraft with a manually set DI, not aircraft with HSIs.

I have it as realistic as possible. All the crash settings are on, because I like seeing my downloaded fireball effects Big grin
