Let me remind you of this:

Any landing you walk away from is a good landing. Any landing where you can use the airplane again, is an excellent landing Wink

Joking aside, an average landing is probably 120 fpm or so. Also (and we've talked about this before I think), you need to plant the wheels firmly (not a 0.1 fpm) so the gear "knows" you've hit the ground and deploys spoilers. Low fpm is not everything.

For me, the perfect landing is around 100 fpm, certainly withing the first quarter of the runway (preferably on the 1000 ft bars) with a good rollout - not too long, not too short.

I used FS passengers. I think most of us did!

Also, a too soft landing in wet weather could result in aquaplaning but I don't think this can be replecated in FS.

Negative, It can't be achieved. I have tried it in FS2004. I don't know about fsx.

Press "Shift+ Z" 2 or three times and 2 lines if red text will appear at the top of your screen, one of them will tell you the FPS.
