The professional USB at 700+ usd appears quite expensive. Alternatively if I buy the affordable x-plane 10 home use usb dongle, will it still be unlocked for global use or does it have restrictions as the price diff between the two is quite large.

The purpose of the X-Plane 10 home use USB dongle is only to unlock the sim from Demo mode if you can't or don't want to keep DVD 1 in the drive. It does not include scenery or unlock any of the additional pro use features. There is no home use USB dongle for X-Plane 11 for sale.

Thanks J. Roberts for your prompt reply. I understand from your comment that I need to download the sceneries from internet and then use the 10 home usb to unlock from Demo mode. This hopefully should get me started as I am a basic flyer.

Could you kindly advise on the addn pro features you mention of. Thanks.
