The simulator that comes with E-Sky is free, it is called FMS and can be downloaded from here:

What they sell for about $30 (including shipping) is the USB controller and a CD with FMS.

Thanks for the response,
I'm just getting into RC electric flying, And really know nothing about it. I have been reading this forum for quite some time now and finely bought a electric trainer plane.
I'm looking for a flight simulator that i can practice on that won't cost an arm and a leg, But will teach me.

Do you have any idea if the simulator will work on windows Vista? Or do you know of a low price simulator that comes with the controller?

Thanks again,

For low cost learning, the E-Sky USB controller is $30 and FMS is free. If you want to spend a little more, take a look at $40 ClearView (uses the E-Sky controller that you must get separatelly). Next is Phoenix for $150 and then RF G3 and FS One at $200.
Each can teach you up to a point and they are all good learning tools and good value, do search here, there is plenty to read for each one.

Thanks much, I've been doing alot of research, Now need to decide.

Thanks for the help,

P.S. I downloaded fms and found that i need to download a d3drm.dll file for ot to play with vista. I downloaded the dll file, But can't figure out where to put it. The program will not auto load it.

This is a dynamic link library file... they all normally reside in the C:/windows/system32 directory. But I have that in the proper place, and I also added it to the FMS folder as well, but FMS will still not run under Vista for me.

The frustrating thing is I had it running early on, then reinstalled Vista when I had problems with other programs, and now FMS won't run again.
