This proggie looks pretty decent for being free.
I recently bought the RealFlight G5 RC flight trainer.
It is a great way to fly and not have to go to field. Plus my youngest son gets to practice without destroying anything http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It's excellent the way your RC pride just bounces off the ground into pixels rather than matchwood http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

One of the best things about it ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

One of the hardest things to learn in the beginning is to adjust for the reversal of some aircraft controls when the aircraft is flying TOWARD you. These sims do a nice job of helping with that.

I was wondering if it really is the best as I have recently (after I purchased RealFlight) read that the Phoenix RC Flight Sim in the best.
Now I don't know what to believe.

The program won't run on my XP install. I get an error message and do what the FAQ says to do to fix the problem but it doesn't work. Can't seem to resolve it. Oh well http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Weird!! I got this to run on XP on my laptop but not XP on my desktop. I also have a install of Win 7 Pro on my desktop if I change the hard disk to boot to in Bios. I'll try it in 7 I guess. It does me no good to have it on my laptop since I can't use my joystick with my laptop, only my desktop. Unfortunately, I can't use my joystick or pedals with Win 7 either since they're gameport. But at least I can see if FMS will run there.

That is strange M/T. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Hope you get the program to run on your d/T. It's a whole lot of fun.

I've been using it for years.

I actually played it for about a week, then took my first R/C 40 Trainer out, and flew it with a training chord, the old hand at it let me have full control after two slow low passes over the field. And I landed it without incident.
he then let me take it off, again without incident.

I flew that plane 100+ sorties, till I parked in top off a tree. It was low light, and I was having so much fun, I continued to fly too close till sunset. I miss judged my approach due to the lack of light. All my fault!

It took me a week to get it back down out of the 70 foot tree.

So from my experience, it a marvelous program to train your hand and eye coordination.

Get a USB game pad controller, so you can set the two sticks up just like a real R/C control box.

Mine is just a little $10 one from Walmart.
