Any simulators that you can fly with keyboard or 360/Playstation controller?

Hey,

Well, I pretty much said everything in the title,

I've tried RealFlight G4, Reflex XTR, PhoenixRC, and Clearview

Only Clearview seems to allow you to use a controller or a keyboard.

I was wondering, is there a workaround or something for other simulators or do they only work with their own(and RC) controllers? they don't even let you use a keyboard...

Try HeliSimRC at http://www.marksfiles.net/HeliSimRC/index.htm. It is free and I used it with the keyboard (too much work), a Microsoft Sidewinder contoller (fun but not realistic), and the Esky controllers that came with my HBK2 and HBFP.

I used this for several weeks before I bought PhoenixRC.

Just buy a USB Esky controller... it works like the read deal and is like $20 or less.

I'm using Clearview with an Xbox 360 controller, at least until I get my Esky controller. It is handy to be able to use it but the Esky is cheap enough. I can't imagine trying to use a sim with a keyboard.
