No one was setting a conflict, neither comparing, I was just saying I find the katana more fun to fly. And it's not because I find the ngx difficult to learn or master, that wouldn't definitely be the case... The thing in my opinion is the katana, while being an extreme complex simulation of the real aircraft, brings me the perfect simulation of the "fun" real world aviation side, the one that people who enjoy flying do on their spare time as a hobby. For example, maintenance wise, the pmdg has a wear and tear simulation, and I keep seeing people asking on the forum for a virtual hangar where you could add oil or fix this or that in the ngx... Guess what, in real life no pilot would ever do that, as soon as you land from your last sector back to your home base, all pax disembark and you're ready to go home, you get the visit of a small van with a really smart guy inside who climbs into the a/c and asks us if something is wrong, well, usually we say no, however and despite our word he goes around and does a complete check of everything, ensuring that the a/c is ready for the next flight in the next morning! And the maintenance is always done within the limits, so, as no components ever go beyond their maintenance interval without proper care, chances for you to get a severe malfunction are ridiculous low... Now imagine you're using a katana in the real life, you don't have a background of engineers backing you up, you rely on your knowledge and understanding of the a/c systems to keep it airworthy, you need to ensure everything is right, you need to feel the engine and listen to it, and then, only then, you actually need to fly it. The katana 4x makes you do all this, and for me that's simulated fun, with the most detail I've ever seen!
The developer got it so so right with this little aircraft!
In the end I'm sure none of us were comparing anything, just expressing an opinion about what we think is fun good or bad to ourselves, exactly as you did. And I'm glad you did it, and I accept it because there's plenty of background in the flight sim world, and as I see it there's always a chance to learn something new due to the pluralism existent on this communities .
