I'll hopefully be purchasing this over the weekend and I'll be flying ELY 1 (TLV-JFK; 744) to inaugurate JFK! It looks amazing! I love their work!

Well I just got the beast and all I can say is get it you won't be dis appointed.
It looks and feels great. It is nice to see all those JetBlue aircraft parked where they are
suppose to be. I also got the new Stockholm scenery as well and again it is done
well, It does have one glitch in that you can not use Lee Swordy"s AFCAD tool to change
anything in the AFCAD file as it somehow effects some of the Exclude files. This is being worked
on as I write this and should be fixed soon. I will try and post some screen shots soon of both.

I wasn't too impressed with the runway and grass textures a they appear to be adapted from real life photos. I would have preferred FlyTampa / Aerosoft LHR style high res grass textures. Nonetheless, the terminal buildings are super and it is definite must buy.

A pretty good one. It all depends on your scenery, but your frames pay for the quality of the scenery. If you have a super-computer, like Nick's, you probably won't see a huge decrease if you see one at all. If your computer isn't so spectacular, then don't throw the $35 for it...

As far as frame rates go, I noticed no difference between default KORD and FSDT's KORD, they both gave me 4-7 FPS on my old machine (with AI, ActiveSky, etc.). I use my old machine as an example because on my new rig, I can't get the FPS to drop below 20 even if I try 8) I don't have their KJFK scenery, but it looks similar so I expect the same results could be expected.
