Flight Simulator

Looking for a flight simulator to use over the winter. Tower Hobbies has a Dave Brown set up for about $120 that appears to come with a box, so I wouln't have to drag my futaba up to my computer.....

Does anyone use this or have any comments about others.....? . Arne, CT, USA .

If you are going to spend that kind of money, spend a little more and get G2 (about $200). If you want save some money D/L FMS, get an interface cable and drag your transmitter up to the computer.

The Dave Brown simulator is a bit easier to fly than Realflight G2. It has nowhere near the complexity or realism of G2. That said, it isn't all that bad. A beginner is just as apt to learn with it as with any other. A big plus is that it works with a wider variety of video cards. It's controller can be used with almost any other game or simulator as well.

Buy G2 if you have an NVIDIA based card or other video card with good support for the latest DirectX drivers. Get the Dave Brown if you have an older machine with an S3 or similar card. Realflight has many problems with some video cards.
