I did almost the same thing except about a year ago ssh. I got FB and a MSFFB2 stick and now I like FB more that Lo-Mac (perhaps b/c it barely runs on my system which isn't shabby).
But it is more than that. There is nothing better than spotting the enemy below that you have altitude advantage on, flipping inverted, cutting the throttle and diving down towards him as you hear the wind rushing by and timing your burst of cannon rounds perfectly as you watch his oil/gas burst out then clip the wing with a large round and watch it snap as he tumbles in a gravity-induced spiral.
Jeez, sorry, stuck at work.
