Does anyone do any sort of Flight Simulation? I am trying to get into it because I love airplanes but it's quite a task!

I used to play X Plane but honestly playing with your mouse and keyboard sucks 😬

I'm trying to get into X-Plane now but learning an airplane looks daunting.

Get a PS controller if you got one laying around. Gamechanger, at least compared to mouse & keyboard.

X-Plane looks more difficult than FSX to me. I've been playing FSX for about a year and I can say I got used to the controls within a week. Online co-pilot flights are the best, especially when adding a touch of turbulence and/or failures. If you do the FSX beginner missions, you will get used to the game pretty soon. Don't have X-Plane so can't comment about it.

When you say more difficult what does that mean? Like more controls? Looking at both of them they seem to have a lot of the same controls if you purchase a plane.

X Plane 11 has more realistic flight dynamics and a better graphics than FSX. I've only spent around $80 on X Plane 11, but I have friends that have spent hundreds on FSX. Also there is alot of free scenery in X Plane 11 that just look stunning. If you ever think you're going to incoporate VR into your gameplay, XPlane is the better choice. FSX is easier in controls though and you can get into it pretty quickly (say a few days to a week) however that is not from me, last time I played FSX was a really long time ago this is coming from my friend that plays both.
Also, idk if my pc is just bad, but FSX crashes far more than X Plane since often it'll use up all my RAM.

MS Flight sim for me. I mainly use a controller for taking off and landing, much easier and a cheaper alternative to buying a yolk and what not.

Then I just use mouse and keyboard for the rest. I still have some learning to do to understand everything better but I am getting there.

I'm down to play with anyone if anyone wants too.

Im team FSX all the way. Thats how I started. I grew to love airplanes and jets. I played with it a lot with a ps3 controller on my pc until i found out im very limited without a yolk so i gave up.
