I just downloaded both the freeware and the paid version. Having flown the C-47 for a few years over the Amazon, logging almost 800 hrs,  I could say that the freeware version is closer to the real thing, in my opinion. Although I have both, Vskylabs and Aeroworx, the freeware is my favorite. Another thing I like is the sound. I just hope that we had  more  liveries for it.
