Is a flight simulator worth it? Can I do 3D
Just wondering before I spend the $200 dollars on a flight sim if they are worth it. I have played with FMS and feel that it is OK but, the flight dynamics are still hokey. If I spend the $$$$ on Real Flight or some other commercial flight sim how real in terms of flight modeling are they? Can I perform 3D with it etc....??? Does my transmitter work including Expo/Dual Rates/Mixing etc...
Thanks for any help.
Hey Paul !
Real flight G2 is well worth the money. You can do 3D and just about whatever else you want to do. With the controler it's feels just like flying a real model, but when you crash you just restart and continue flying.
I bought it to practice for helicopters. I had a heli years before after crashing once I was always nervous flying afterwards. When I wanted to get back into helis I bought the sim. Practiced flying. When I finally flew the real model I had a lot more confidence and my skills advanced quickly. If you want to try something new use the sim first till you get it down pat. If you crash your not out a plane or heli.
You can also use your own controler. Which helps to get you use to your own radio. It comes with the cable for Futaba. You can buy a cable for Air. or JR radios as well. I'm not sure about other brands of radios.
Hope this helps
