    Cheap Sims

    Well I need some simulator time before I stick my planes back up in the air being out for quite a while due to medical issues . I have the FMS and looking on the old sites for the other ones.

    These cheapies are not Windows 7 compatible. Any ideas?

    RE: Cheap Sims

    Tower has Aerofly Porfessional on sale right now for 124.99. I have flown this sim and it seems real good. The one I flew was an older version without the photo fields and I enjoyed a lot. I personally use Realflight but its at the 200.0 mark right now. The really cheaps ones I 've used just doesn't seem to be very good training.
    Best of luck Roger

    RE: Cheap Sims

    I don't know all of your requirements, but for $40 there is the CLearview simulator. Also you have to either buy the cheapy transmitter for FMS or a connector chord for your real transmitter $10 + shipping). You can try it with a DL demo which is actually the full sim, but limited to only a couple of planes and helicopters. The Demo expires after a while. It seems to run fine on my $350 laptop w/ AMD Athlon 1.6 HZ and 250MEG integrated graphics card run by a Windows 7 64Bit Op system.

    See link for Windows 7 issues had by others: http://www.clearviewrc.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1032

    Is another for $60 you use your own transmitter (didnt say which brand).
    Remember if you don\'\'\'\'t have enough power nothing is going to save you, but if you have too much power just throttle back.

    A cheap trainer? How insulting! Me/ With my gifts and expertise? I'd rather get out that unfinished F-20 and run around the room with it and make neeeeeeeeeeeeeeoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww noises Nah I have an Extra laying around i can put up. I took an electric Extraa few yrs a go and installed a OS.15cv. What a screamer that thing is.

    Thing is i dumped the old desktop and went with a laptop, Has Windos 7 onit and the sim won't load up. Gives me a warning about somefile it doesn't have and canfigure out how toget it in their

    Here i am in San francisco a couple weeks back visiting my kid in Livermore
