This boggles my mind. Why would anyone even think about playing, let alone developing, a model airplane simulator? What did you say? Marijuana smokage?

To keep your hand/eye in during periods of bad weather (northern winters). Flying several thousand dollars of radio gear, engine and many hours of painstaking work around when you're out of practice is not advisable http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Choose tower-view in MSFS2004 and you can radiocontrol a 747 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
