They do have 1 or 2 expansion packs for LoMAC. And yes, there's only 7 flyable aircraft. IMHO, they did an awesome job with the physics for having that many aircraft. Usually the more planes, the more "cookie-cutter" they get with flight physics and stuff. But you can definitely tell the difference between, say, the MiG-29 and the Su-27 (especially when you execute Pugachev's Cobra). Many flight sims would not feel any different. I think you can get it really cheap now, and it's still probably the best combat FS out there at the moment. I'd recommend that, and FSX just for the entertainment value of the missions. Especially the Red Bull air racing. That shit is intense. I'm about ready to buy TrackIR just to finish those missions.
The SR-71 has been included in every version I can remember. It wouldn't be on that page I linked to. That's add-ons. It usually has an SR-71, a tiltrotor (now the V-22), a harrier, a space shuttle, and many others. Total included aircraft for V.9 is supposed to be 40.
Sorry man. I hate making recommendations when each one has its own unique features that make it great. If I had to limit my choice to one, I would go with FSX. But then I'd eat nothing but ramen noodles for 2 weeks till I could get the other 2 lol.Bah... I'll just get them all. :laughing:
Having never flown before, I probably couldn't honestly tell if they weren't completely realistic, anyway.
Pro. It's really not expensive (as controllers go) and it feels more solid than the X52. With the added support for interaction with your sims, it really is a nice setup. However, if you want to save money, I have a slightly (like, barely) used X52 I'll gladly sell you.Snake...
X52 vs X52 Pro... Thoughts?
