Did anyone here upgrade to X-Plane from FSX or FS9?

What are your thoughts on X-Plane?

Technically, I went from P3d v3 to X-Plane. I like it. It is more stable and can be customized very easily. What airframes do you primarily fly (include brand)?

I tend to fly the 737-800 / 900 more than anything else.

Mark; is that the PMDG? At any rate there is a good 738 called the Zibo mod. It also has a fork off that for -900 and -700. Fairly good plane and model. Best part is all three are free. The -800 gets updated almost every week.

I recently went from FSX to Xplane 11, first impression for me was the graphics (9 yrs of FSX), so much better details... Smooth gameplay no gitters & I hear it barely crashes...overall i like it better... Zibo for me feels more realistic, but I'm kinda disappointed xplane falls short on good payware, I'm looking for a decent heavy for long haul but my choices have bad reviews, FF 777 and SSG 747-8....still not sure which one to get...hate to go back to FSX for lack of good payware

As far as long haul payware aircraft, everyone swears by the Flight Factor 767 followed very closely by the Flight Factor 757. All the rest of long hauler payware are hit and miss. I also primarily fly the 737-800 (Zibo mod) in X-Plane 11 and appreciate the level of detail and involvement in continually updating the flight model. There is an incremental patched released almost every other day and active Zibo Community on Facebook and Discord.
