Has anyone tried the FMS Simutator?


I haven't flown before and found this free Sim online yesterday.

Along with the program SmartPropoPlus, I can use my Spectrum DX5e receiver in the sim.

My question is, does it accurately (or to some degree) represent actually flying a model plane?

I bought the Corsair Parkflyer this winter and wondering if this Sim will help me learn the skills I need before I take the plane out for the first time.

You get what you pay for with Sims, yes t does work and yes it will help but it is very basic. Not much physics behind it. The planes dont seem to stall ever you just point them and they go. It will help you learn the directions but not the feel of it

What do I need to hook my DX5e to my computer?

I just used a Microsoft 2 paddle joystick on mine. Any gaming 2 stick would be ok I think. The FMS is better than nothing-for nothing.
