As a kid, I flew control-line aircraft and watched neighbors fly RC powered and glider aircraft. I plan to get myself and my kids into RC planes, particularly the amazing electric park flyers, and purchased this simulator as a way of preparing myself for my first and subsequent flights with a variety of aircraft.

The software comes with a full size Futaba simulator controller that is fully featured, offering 8 channels, trim tabs, and two sticks and connects to the computer via a USB port. The controller is top notch. The package comes with other cables that can be used to connect other, real controllers to your computer to allow you to train with the equipment you use in the field.

The software is easy to install/register and intuitive to use. Users have a wide variety of locations to fly from, ranging from photo-realistic grass fields to less realistic fantasy locations that I found less interesting. The range of aircraft offered is representative of just about everything one would want to fly, including electric and gas/nitro trainers, 3D aerobats, scale war birds, float planes, ducted fan and turbine jets and twin engine planes. There is even a Harrier jet, which is fun to try out. I would have liked to see more in the war bird category, including two and four engine aircraft, but the range of aircraft offered is more than adequate and after a month of owning the software and "flying" daily I still have not flown all of them. Several aircraft can be configured as "combat" versions with guns and rockets. Other configurations are offered, as well as different color schemes. Finally, multiplayer options are also provided (I have not tried them yet).

The experience of flying is very realistic.

I would recommend this to everyone who wants to get into real life RC planes. It's more realistic than other simulators I've tried, I think it's well worth the money for the confidence and skill it gives you when flying your real planes (which each cost 2-4 times as much, it's much better to learn crashing electrons instead of foam wings). The number of planes is ridiculous (with more available to download) - basic trainers, warplane models, crazy 3D acrobats and helis. It even has some fun oddball models like the Wright brother's plane, a vertical takeoff harrier, float planes and crazy fast fighter jets. The only thing I don't like about it are landings - you need ridiculous distances to glide in to a landing and then to roll to a stop, much longer than my experience with similar planes has been in real life. But the flight, acrobatic, stall, etc. mechanics are very realistic.

Pros:
-Tons of models
-Realistic flight with a full size mock RC transmitter
-Adjustable difficulty
-New relative to other simulators (actually works in Windows 7)

Cons:
-Expensive (easily worth it to save your real life planes)
-Landings harder than real life (not necessarily a con)

With this you can do just about anything dealing with rc hobbys I have always wonted to fly but cant get the fact that once you crash it there went everything!!
Instead of buuying a rc plane/heli I bought this and so far I have liked it alot it has its on limitations but overall its worth the price!! The controller is alsome it has many features bt hope you dont drop it it seems if someone did that would be all for one of the swicths. If you wont to fly a rc plane and or helicopter without going into bankruptcy this is what you need!!!

I had an interest in RC flying but didn't know where or how to start this did it for me. I can learn to fly a variety of planes at no extra cost and no fear of crashing and destroying the model.

This product is outstanding. It is a superior and natural bridge between the desire and the successful completion of RC flight. I have been running on a modern all-in-one computer and it performs outstanding. It is especially fun flying the enhanced aircraft, such as 3D helicopters, gyro assisted 3D Yak, tilt-wing aircraft. The price may seem high before you buy, but not after you use the product. Great value, pays for itself in fun flying of your real A/C without disappointing and expensive CRASHES!

This is a re-write of my original not-so-glowing review. Originally I was disappointed with the graphics quality. I ran it on an HP Pavilion with 1GB card and an I7 processor and wasn't impressed.

I migrated the Sim, AND Win7 64 Bit OS to a MacBook Pro 15 via "Parallels" and it works FLAWLESSLY and looks MUCH better. The Virtual machine has 75% few graphics resources dedicated to (Parallels only allows 256MB) it AND all the graphics settings on the SIM are maxed out. HP should be ASHAMED.

Anyway, much happier with the program, although STILL...my wallet aches a little for the $200 expenditure; but in the long run, and the non-crash training I get...it making its money for me. I'm one of the guys that thought he could fly a Blade 400...with out much practice (can fly an MSR easily enough!)...very wrong I was.
