I am (Jipson PJ) just a beginner in X-Plane
We have two main requirements to be fulfilled using X-Plane. Please guide me on the same.
As of now X-Plane 10 demo we are using for checking all features, so we would like to know , what is the major different between, Pro edition to the desktop edition. This may help us for a purchase plan.
We would like to have some samples for starting our development for flight visualization.
1. This section of the manual includes a list of the default aircraft. There are also many payware and free aircraft available--just do a search online for what else you want.
2. It is possible to use WED to import orthophotos into custom scenery, but that is not part of default scenery.
3. X-Plane 10 is available as a mobile app on the Google Play & Apple App stores.
It's a good idea to start with the demo because it allows you access to all the planes and capabilities of X-Plane 10 except with a 15 minute time limit and limited scenery (only KSEA).
The Pro version is basically the same as the Global version except the license is expanded for commercial & professional use, and includes features listed on this page.
