Hi everybody,

just a small question. I just changed from FSX-SE to Prepar3d V5. Now i want to fly my favorite airliner, an a320. So my question is, should I wait for the release for V5 or should i stick with a developer license for 1 month with V4? Thanks for your help.

Keep in mind that even if FSL for V5 is released in the next weeks, it’s going to be a matter of months (or who knows, even years) before the bugs in the sim and addons are flattened out and flying it is actually a pleasant experience.

Nonetheless, if I were in your position, I would wait those months and stick with V5. The whole process of setting up V4 and all related addons takes its time too, and personally I don’t think it’s worth it. I guess it just depends on how eager you are to fly the bus. :)

So I’m in the same boat.  My PC builders in Tampa strongly recommend V5-but without the FSLabs Bus it’s not worth buying the PC and getting what I need to get to begin.  I’m also concerned about the bugs I’ve seen in V5 with GPU/VRAM overuse.  When I finally get to fly the FSlabs bus (which I’ve been waiting to do since about 2009 ish...  Well-since whenever it was announced basically)   I truly do want it to be a smooth/pleasant experience.  So I’m now torn between getting the PC/V4/FSL A320/321 or waiting even longer for A. FSL for  P3D V5 and B. V5 to have enough bug fixes to make a difference.

I'm stockpiling all of the updated scenery installers ready for when P3Dv5 is stable, and enough of the aircraft have become compatible with it. Until then I continue to use P3Dv4.5 AS normal until v5 meets it's benchmark. Your best bet is to pay monthly for v4.5 and when v5 'gets there' then make the switch!

How do you mean “pay monthly” ???
