I drifted away from MSFS about 4 years ago in favor of X-plane 9 and Condor. X-plane leaves a lot to be desired in interface and world design, but the flight mechanics leave MSFS in the dust. Condor is simply the best sailplane simulator that exists, period. The thermal generation in the MSFS series for sailplanes is an absolute joke compared to the wonderfully realistic thermal, ridge, and wave patterns of Condor.

I will try this out, though. If they made the flight mechanics comparable to X-plane, I'll probably switch over just to get the nicer graphics and world design. Better dust off my pedals, HOTAS, and yoke...
