Aerofly Deluxe so far so good!
I just bought Aerofly Deluxe today from www.hobby-lobby.com and I must say it works very very well. I did have to download some updated video drivers from Nvidia in order for it to work since it uses open GL video. The install was a breeze and I also downloaded the patch from their website without a hitch.
I mainly fly Heli's and it has several. I'm using the old Interlink controller from my G-2 and it works just fine. One thing that swayed my decision to go with AFD was the fact I can use my Hitec Eclipse 7 whereas the Reflex XFR doesn't work with the Eclipse 7! I've done alot of research the past few days to narrow down purchasing a new SIM and Aerofly for me was the best decision. I have my screen resolution in the highest mode since I have a Pentium 4 3.6 GHz with 1 Gig ram and 64 Meg Nivida G-Force video card. The frame rate is excellent and the helicopters seems to fly very realistically. In the photo-realistic scenery it looks life like and the heli physics are remarkable. I really like the fact that I can use the I-Link controller or a joystick in conjunction with my Eclipse Transmitter, that is a big bonus. The only requirement is that you have to keep the USB cable with the dongle plugged in for the I-link to work which is no biggie since I have 4 USB ports.
For the money, $169.00 I'd say it's well worth it. As a side note I did download the XTR demo and took a look. The only difference I could see was the heli's in XTR look more like a real heli, i.e., photo realistic. Other than that I really like it so far.
Note: I did fly two of the airplanes and they fly very well as well. Aerofly Deluxe is very feature rich and if you decide to buy it I don't think you'll be dissappointed!

The last sim I had was the old CSM version 9.
I just bought and installed AFPD and based on bmy limited experience, seems to be excellent so far.
If you do get bored for any reason try loading in 2 powered aircraft then selecting the glider tow option. Take off using the rear aircraft and observe the effect on the static towing aircraft as the other plane wizzes past straining at the leash.

Sorry, wrong. XTR works with the Eclipse 7 pretty nicely. No problems at all, no incompatabilities. If there would be any, it would be written on the Reflex homepage. 2 fellows in the local clubs are using the Eclipse with the Reflex.
Instead of listening to gossip you could just ask the people who should know - the manufacturer.
