Real Flight G3 or Esky Flight simulator


I have Real Flight G3, which I really like. I have seen on ebay, Esky flight sim for FMS. I have the free version of Fms and it is ok, but G3 is way better.
Which one is best? I was wondering if I should by the Esky.
Anyone have any thoughts on these sims?

G3 will be FAR superior to FMS or the Esky. Save your money.

Thanks Chris.....I thought the G3 was the best, but have never seen the Esky sim.
I will spend my money on spare parts now.

G3 is much better as it is a paid program. Esky is cheap as it use the free FMS Simulator (FMS Website)

G3 is certainly best of those listed.
I have also used Reflex XTR, and it is (arguably) slightly better than G3. But I think the differences are so minor that XTR and G3 could be considered equivilent.

G3.5? I need to go look!

The night flying in G3.5 is pretty cool. There were a bunch of heli guys online last night flying in a night field. It was wild!

There is some kind of a bug related to plane snap rolls that a few people are complaining about, and a bunch of other nice changes in G3.5, plus it's a free update for G3 owners.

3.5 is great!! A few issues so far that I've seen:

The Dominion 90 seems to pitch up badly in FFF. You have to keep the AOA JUST perfect to maintain speed. They don't slide quite as far on downhill crashes though...

I've also found that some of the training vids aren't correct. On one of the takeoff vids, the landing gear sinks into the runway about 3 or 4 inches when the plane is on the ground.

I've been landing the Dominion 90 on the wall in the athletic club!! Now THAT'S fun!! I was boring the little lady with the recordings last night.

The streamers and night flying are awesome too.

My T-Rex 450's that I downloaded aren't working correctly anymore, either. The Blade CP is working though.

I only know from planes experence (6 years) but G3.5 is way to "easy" planes just DONT snap that easy XTR seems to be more on the spot for relism so if you want to play a "game" then get G3 if you want to impove your flying get XTR but out of the best 3 sim's the order for ME would be

Reflex XTR
Aero Flight Deluxe

and G3.5 a distint last (i have a copy if anyone wants it i sure dont)

Hi Honeybeeking2,
I just bought my first rc plane and e-sky controller both on their way.
I would love to get a copy of your G3.5
Let me know how we can proceed with this one.

.. it would be nice to have a better sim than g3.5 .. ive found g3.5 to be pretty much spot-on with the mx400 and transitioning what i learn to my honeybee king ... any better and it wouldnt be realistic .. the only thing i would improve on it is more detailed graphics and maybe an adjustment for motor power .. that may even be in there i havent taken the time to really explore all the settings ... i like that i can dial the wind up after i learn a move or orientation to get even more realism .. i just cant complain about g3.5 it got me flying and confident with my king2 and like i mentioned ... the stick inputs are almost exact to the helis reaction in real flight .. with the g3.5 that i have anyway ... maybe the one u have is different

.. but really an edit here is in order ... the secret to any sim in my humble opinion is not kidding yourself ... theres a big view there virtually and its easier to see everything from the outside looking down on it ... but how much control do you really have and how much are you watching it coast .. if you are not 100% in control at all times u will be punished accordingly put it in a small space with somthing around you or on the ground to guide off of and make it do exactly what u want it to do and nothing else .. and be smooth about it ..
