Rf 7

Hello all

It's been a long time since I did any r/c flying, I just flew a trainer before and I'm getting lots of people saying It would be wise to get a simulator before I crash a new plane, I am going to go with a gas trainer when I get one again. So I have been looking at the real flight 7 program. I have a couple questions

I have a futaba 6ex radio I could use for the program, would it be wise to use my radio or get the program with the supplied radio. I have read good and bad about both routes. Does it slow the response if I use my radio? , Is it terribly difficult to set it up with my radio? If i set the program to advanced is that the closest to real flying as the program offers?

What are the advantages and disadvantages

I have been using Real flight for years, with the Interlink Tx that cones with it. For trainers, that Tx is more than adequate. When you reach a point where you need to use more channels or the mixing capabilities of the Tx you use at the flying field, then, you would want to use your real Tx.

The downside is that you put wear and tear on the gimbals of your real Tx.
