Real Flight Simulator

Not that real if there planes don't have brakes or reverse thrust for landings.

How many model planes have any of those features ?

I've seen one or two with brakes but that's about it.

Attitude indicator? Really? There is a variometer, if that's what it's called. I don't see many people using stuff like that at the real field. But if brakes and reverse thrust is what you want, edit the planes. It is possible to do in Real Flight, but why do it?

My guess he doesn't understand that this is an RC simulator and not a fullsize flight simulator. And just for the record there are several planes in RealFlight which have brakes. Usually jets.

You know what my problem is? I don't understand that this is an RC simulator and not a full size simulator like we had in the Navy.

You said it. The only thing I can think of in RF that has reverse thrust is one of those wonky planes with the pitch adjusting prop, I forget what it's called. Seriously though can you point out one real RC model that has reverse thrust for landing?

RealFlight does support such things.

Most real planes don't have those, either, but it would be useful!
