As far as I'm concerned there is only XTR

I've had G2, FMS, CSM and aerofly

XTR has fantastic graphics, great pyhsics and free updates and down loads.

I have both afpd and reflex and it all depends on what you want to fly.

For helis reflex is by far the best. But there is only one airplane in it that feels anything close to realistic...and its a foamy...and its a download off some guys site. So i only play this for the helis.

As far as AFPD it is veryrealistic for airplanes but the helis are lacking. which ones better? I cant say i like and play both. But if its helis then reflex is the way to go. the only problem is you need a good video card to run it. Im using a geforce 6600 and it runs smoothly at 60fps (my v-sinc is set to 60) and on afp i get around 200-300fps with v-sinc off.

hope this helps...
