I hate to say this to start but I fly in real life. The original post is quite accurate. I will say this, out of the box I think the default aircraft are better than I have seen in any other Microsoft Sim (Never used X plane recreationally).
One major annoyance and a big miss here is crosswinds, and wind in general on take off and landing. If there is any sort of crosswind, in the sim the airplane turns into the wind in a VERY excessive way. To the point where you can easily go off the side of the runway. Also, landing in crosswinds feel very unrealistic. It generally feels as though at a certain speed the airplanes lack any “weight” and the wind takes hold. They need to fix this.
