I like to specialize and fly one plane good instead of many not so good. Two more reasons.

I can always fly the Viper in the other sim.

I save $80. Important when you live on an SS check.

Alright, fair enough

I can't do it. I'm going to buy the Viper on my next SS check.

I guess i'm more a mountain man than a surfer.

I'm not going to fly both. I'll just fly the Viper and hope it doesn't take forever to finish.

I have both and prefer the Hornet. Not to say the viper won't get there, but right now its the hornet.

Hornet here in DCS, Viper in the other sim.

I have the DCS Viper but it's too frustrating to fly right now, I'll check it out once it's feature complete.

I prefer the Hornet. It has a more diverse set and mission set, better avionics (minus the HOTAS), better sensors, an extra display. And personally, it controls better for me than the Viper does, although that might have to do with the different grip placement (I use a center mounted Hornet grip with an extension for the F-18 and a normal Warthog grip as a side stick for the F-16).

I'm surprised so many likes the feeling of the Hornet better then the Viper, I'm the other way around. I get a much better feel of what is happening in the Viper, and it acts more like I expect it to do, better feedback from engine as well. So, for the flying itself I definitely prefer the Viper.

But when it comes to weapons the Hornet have the upper hand with the exception that it lacks the CBU-97 (that is awesome!), at least so far. Once the Falcon gets the HARM and JDAM I will probably not fly the Hornet as much (now I fly them approx 50/50).
