All I see is a bunch of dollars going POOF! unless you are insanely good. How is that fun?

"fairly proficient" = POOF!

As long as it's caught on tape, it's all fun. Kinda like combat. I'm not saying it won't go POOF.

Yeah, with a combat wing. But not a 450 heli. That's like flying an obstacle course with your DLG... POOF NOT good

Heli's aren't that bad to fix though. Every part is directly replaceable and you don't have to hodge podge it together like a molded plane or a balsa build up. It sometimes looks worse than it really is. I had a crash totally flip flop in idle up all over the ground and I only had to replace a few small parts but it looked like a horrible crash. But there are still some high priced parts on there.

Anyone want to buy a cheap computer.

Windows XP "actual valid copy"
AMD 4200 something processor 2.8 I think
One great big monitor
160 GB WD HD
Some RAM
MSI MB

Just needs a keyboard

I built it for a guy at work who just wanted a cheap comp for his wife to surf and do word docs and play solitaire on. Yep, he dont want it...... Fantastic.....

Anyways, I am into it about $120.00 and would be open to offers as I have no use for it.

It would work just fine for something like Minecraft when logged onto a minecraft server or just for kids to do whatever with.

Jon, I might take you up on that. My kids are often competing for computers to do assignments on.

Kids doing homework sounds way more valid than my reason. I was thinking it would make a good dedicated flight sim computer, since I can't for the life of me get a controller to work on Windows 7.

My Aerofly Pro works on W7 as well. Whats up with a sim that wont work on 7? What sim is it? Did you try running it as an XP program as 7 will let you do that.

I can get plenty of software to work on W7 (either directly, or running as XP), the problem is, I can't get the computer to fully recognize all movements on a controller. I always end up with no aileron from the right stick, or all the movement, but no rudder.

@jwjohnson, are you using the controller that came with the software, or your own

mine is the Turnigy 9X, but also tried a dummy controller that Ryan sells for sims. Both had same problem.
