I would gladly pay $30US for FOC but nothing more. I’ve got so many add on’s now. It does look nice and sounds nice however I guess I’ll stick to FSNav/FScom and my companies Jeppsen subscription if I really want real world flight planning. I do think you would sell more if you priced it where everyone could afford it. just my 2 cents…

The navdata is quite expensive:

None of these things are like you NEED it as in food, shelter, medicare…… If it’s too expensive for you for whatever reason (you can’t spend what you don’t have… I would like a few Ferrari’s too) then you don’t buy. If you don’t think something is ‘worth it’ for YOU, then you don’t buy. Like Paul said, most products cost somebody a LOT of… Read more »

Just a general comment. Yes some software and hardware does cost alot. There is alot to look at and think about out there. Homework needs to be done ahead of time before buying. It does take developers hours, personal money, etc to create products for us. There are alot of GREAT developers out there coming up with unique products that previously were not available. Those of us that have ben around since the days of flying MS FS1, RGB screens, Commodore versions can say it has come along way. Want realism and as real as it gets costs money. As… Read more »
