The friendly face of flight simming
A few years ago, I found a simular paper documenting the differences of realistic flight modeling between FSX and Xplane 9. The results had FSX as being more realistic by a slight margin. This paper has them pretty much as equals, so as always, it is for the simmer to decide what they prefer. Being a Real World Pilot for around 34 years now, I have always prefered FSX over Xplane 8 and 9. I have installed both of these Xplane versions before and ending up sticking with FSX and earlier versions of MSFS. If you prefer not to read all of the engineering speak that went into this paper, then by all means jump to the end for the conclusions. By the way before anyone believes Blade Element Design is the clear winner, do some research on the subject to learn that it came about originally as a means of designing Propellers I hope you enjoy the very interesing read.
