RC Computer Simulators

An RC flight simulator is a computer program that allows pilots of radio-controlled aircraft to practice on a computer, without the risk and expense of a damaging a real model. Besides the obvious use of training beginners, they are also used for practicing new aerobatics and evaluating a model before buying it, and of course for flying when it's dark and raining!

There are a number of commercial packages available, such as Hangar 9's FS One, SVK Systems ClearView, Great Planes RealFlight G3 and IPACS AeroFly for well over $300. There are also some freeware packages, the most popular being Flying Model Simulator (FMS) and believe us, the freeware works just as well as the $300 copy! The Esky Flight Simulator is by far the BEST selling flight simulator program in the world now!

BONUS! Most simulators allow the importing of add-ons such as new models and landscapes. There are many web sites dedicated to offering free content like this. Try to Google them : )
