Clearview Flight sim

Does anyone know anything about the Clearview Flight Simulator? At
$30.00 it might be a good basic sim or it might be junk. Any experience
out there?

Re: Clearview Flight sim

Since you can download it and demo it without having to pay, why don't you
decide for yourself?

I should have added to my original post that, never having flown an RC
airplane, I don't feel competent to tell a good simulator from a weak
one - thus my request for more knowledgeable opinions!

Randy,

I purchased Real Flight 3.0, Aerofly Professional Deluxe, Reflex XTR... They
were all very nice. I stayed with Reflex because I am a Heli guy. I checked
out Clearview and was very impressed. It has great graphics and physics in
my opinion. For $30, the program is registered for a lifetime. It is awesome
and worth every penney.

Only problem is, the registration is associated with the installation (ie.,
1 PC)... I have Reflex installed on my desktop and my laptop but the
"dongle" authorizes the program. With Clearview the registration on the PC
authorizes the program. So if you wanted to put it on a laptop from your
desktop, you have to unregister and reregister... That's my only gripe.

Also, Clearview needs a radio cable and an RC radio.

Check out the demo for sure. I was sold. I definitely think it's worth
supporting this product, especially when compared to the $200+ programs.

Go for it,
Gary

Re: Clearview Flight sim

Hello Everyone,

I have FMS. That is the only simulator I am familiar with. I would like to get something
better.

The best I can tell from your comments, Clearview compares favorably to FMS. Am I correct about
this ?

Any input Gratefully Welcome.

Thank You So Much,

Wayne

Practically everything compares favorably to FMS Or simply put: Any
sim is better (more realistic) than FMS in my opinion.

Jenni,

You must have the definitive answer. No one else seems to be willing to argue with you. :-)

I do not have ~$200 to shell out right now. I think can I do the $30.

Thank You Very Kindly for your opinion. Only knowing FMS, yours is better than mine. :-)

If your going to stay under $100, you can't beat the price and support you get from Stefan.......... He just released an update, users loaded it, flew it, commented on the forum and within hours he fixed the issues and released another update.

Download the demo and check out a ClearView Thread HERE
Hope this helps.....
