free - Realflight G3 demo download

There's a new RFG3 demo, and it has the Impala helicopter in it.

It's keyboard-controlled, so not very good for learning hovering.
However, you can now check if your hardware is good enough to run it.

Here's the link. Beware - it requires 80 megs of disk space.

There's just enough negative pitch on the Impala in the demo to hover inverted.

It's pretty weird to hover inverted using the keyboard, though.

Unfortunately, all RealFlight Tx's that come with G2 and G3 have a Serial Number, and they only work with the exact CD that they were shipped with. I just discovered that the Realflight Tx does work fine with FMS however.

It sure would be great to use my TX to get a better feal for it. Wish Reflex would give you so many flying fields with things to fly around. Makes things more interesting. Looks like a lot of fun. Thanks Toshi for the link.

Bret, You CAN use your own Tx for G3. You use the RealFlight Tx as an interface, and you plug your Tx into it. G3 comes with a few different plugs that accomodate most/all Tx's.

Should have worded it that it would be nice to use my TX on the demo to get a better idea as to how it feels.

While I was out at the store today I bought Microsoft Flight sim 2004 just to play with. It's interesting to get a idea what real helicopters feel like. It's not bad for about $30.US. Of course it's no good for learning to fly RC heli's but it's interesting.

Is it just me or does the Impala handle really bad? It flies like my FP micro .
Inverted auto's on the Impala are fun though .

Have you checked:

Simulation | Settings | Graphics | Quality

On the regular version there are a lot of things you can turn off. Also, if the demo offers more than one flying field, the photofields are generally higher performance (but you give up some walk around ability and the chase cameras.)

You can use a tx or dual axis controller on MS FS

I have a Logitech WingMan joystick that I use on MS FS. There are a lot of things you can buy to fly on MS FS. I don't think you can use your tx on it. It wouldn't be like flying a real heli or airplane.

Check out this web site for Helicopters on MS FS. http://www.hovercontrol.com/

back in the old days i used to fly flightsimulator 4 and 3 from the flighttower perspective.

Feels like rc if you speed up the time scale
