So all these RC photos of planes and heli's got my interest in Radio Control sparked up again :smile:

Here is great Radio Controlled Flight Simulator for the PC.
I am thinking of getting the full package that includes the Futaba Interlink controller as well.

How much is the package with the controller? I don't see prices on their site, and it looks like you can only buy at local hobby stores.

Look around and read reviews. Realflight has a following, but it isn't the most realistic out there. Phoenix has a good following and a great reputation, and they've had a lot of updates over the years. Reflex-XTR is supposedly really good for helicopters but I've never flown it.

I have only experience with G3.5, but for anyone getting into RC airplanes, it's an excellent aid in addition to having an instructor on buddy box.

RC Universe has a whole section dedicated to flight simulators. One of the members had done extensive research as to what's available in the marketplace : http://www.emptynestgames.com/rc_sim_chart.html

WELLLLLLLL you guys have it sooooooooooooo easy these days:biggrin:
"BACK IN MY DAY" it was crash burn and learn. :frown:

It was often a month or so between lessons:smile:, and you never heard, "can I fly you plane"

A simulator and a HD TV sounds like a great combination.

I fly a lot of handlaunch (in real life) and soon moving to discus. I have the realflight simulator and really like it. The soaring needs a fair bit of fine tuning and I'm not a huge fan of it. It's hard to fly and you lose the plane easily. But for learning with heli's or slope soaring, it's a ton of fun. Worth it for sure.

I can vouch for Aerofly, it's what I use to brush up on skills before bringing a new bit of foam or balsa out into the real world. Looks fantastic, has quite a few choices of planes and works just fine with my Futaba TX.

Great... Now I have to download two demos. I'm not into R/C at all, but think this would be more fun than normal flight simulators (which I've owned over the years). Thanks for the info.
