I have it on Medium, the trees are not very appealing/realistic so I could get by on low I reckon.

I have been checking this since the poll came up and I don't see much difference between the settings. My rig will slow down, 45 to 58 fps when I am on the runway looking around, and jumps to 58 to 60 after I take off. The biggest hit I get is when I use time advance and then only when using 8x and 12x. The fps will vary greatly depending on the plane I am flying, it slows down greatly (in time advance) when flying the SE5a and hardly at all in N10c. This over some of the heaviest forests in the Alsace region.

We don't need fps details at the moment and don't want to change this thread, but bear in mind when running 8x,12 x etc speed, you are actually running the whole sim 8x, 12x faster, a huge strain on CPU/GPU. FPS will vary a lot as there are many factors involved per PC and WOFF settings.

The Poll is now closed thanks everyone!
