Real pilots in the military and civilian commercial sector both use simulations to train so why shouldn’t we. After I bought RF, then the G2 upgrade, my skills went up to the next level. I gained a lot of confidence and I gain a lot of skills. Even now I regularly practice maneuvers to keep my skills up. I have converted all the planes in RF to electric so that they would fly more like an electric instead of an over powered IC rocket. This has helped a lot in learning how to effectively use an electric power plant. Before I built my ‘Lil Sporty which is very close to weight and size of a pylon racer, I spent hours practicing with the fastest plans available in RF. This gave me a lot of perspective on how the real deal would fly. When I flew my plane, I didn’t have any surprises and the flight went flawlessly. I also spent a good deal of time learning how to ROG and land a Cub in a nasty crosswind. This helped a lot went I flew my real Cub in these exact conditions.

It is definitely worth the money.
