flight simulator x from microsoft


maybe a strange question but has anyone tried to see if "FS X" is realistic for rc planes/heli's (when using the real heli's/planes in this game of course.)?

just curiosity

FSX is awesome for commercial airliners and pretty reasonable for GA stuff but RC...forget it. FSX's flight model is very poor and cannot model a tip stall and spin at all - for any plane.

No it is not.....

Now that i have tried both (been using FS for ~1500 hours) i know that i was wrong when i thought that FS could help me in the world of RC...

FS is for other circumstances...

X-Plane does RC semi reasonably. I use it to test new foamie designs, and can easily run it with a simulator controller. Its a little hard to setup the power system, since it works in hp, not watts, but not impossible. It even has a stationary runway view for simulating RC flight. It doesn't do hand launching however.

Its really easy to prototype planes in it, and a little work to make them look good.

While I do own, and fly Real Flight G-5, I am considering picking up a copy of Microsofts Flight Simulator X, for full size stuff.

Does anyone here know if it can be used with an older Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick ?

Thanks > zak
