Incremental spoiler extend/retract

I've wanted this function for years and years and, as far as I know, it is still not available. Has anyone figure a way to do incremental extension of the spoilers via keyboard or joystick? Or, perhaps 50% spoiler hot button?

Dual monitor setup help

I am considering adding a 2nd monitor to my system. Mainly for P3D but for MS Office stuff too (Excel).

My thought is to have my current 35" 21:9 as the primary (external / wing views, etc) with a new 27" wide mounted above it as cockpit view.

Is this easily done?

PC system Uprgade?

Here is my current system. Is there any upgrade I can do to increase P3D V4 performance? I run everything at near-max and have most add ons. PMDG 747 at FlyTampa AMS for example can be slow at times @ dusk with weather... 7 - 9 fps. From what I have read, a second GTX 1080 wouldnt do much for P3D --...

Will the new series of processors benefit P3D?

With a long awaited war between Intel and AMD (like the good ol' days), how will these chips help P3D? There seems to have been very little improvement over the last few years.... hopefully we will see some big movement now? What chips will be the best and what do you think we can expect performance...

Current setup:
i7-6700k

Incremental Spoiler extension

For all of these years, even with MSFS, there needs to be an incremental spoiler extension function key.

Does anyone have a solution or fix for this? As of now, its on/off. there needs to be a function similar to flaps...

perhaps 0%, 25%, 50%, 100%.

Is there a good 787 out there?

I am surprised about the lack of aircraft.... I used to have a good 747 back in the day for FSX but can't seem to find it anywhere online.

Is there a good 787 out there?

Re: VAS always above 3000mb

I have a very similar system, setup and add ons. I have constant OOM issues. I cannot complete a flight unless it is to a non add-on airport.

I wish there was a solution!!

Re: Need Help Upgrading My PC For Flight Sim

So, you would recommend the i7-6850k 3.6ghz over the i7-6700k 4.0ghz?

Re: Best CPU for Prepar3D - out of the box

Ok will turn off HT and see if it helps. Sucks that the ultimate solution is to reduce graphics settings!

When are we going to get a REAL FSX replacement??
