Default free R/C flight sim?

Hello,

I just wanted to know if anyone knows about a free R/C FLight sim. I tried the one on estesrockets.com, but you need a password[&o]. Anyone sites would be greatly appreciated.

There are a number of free RC airplane simulators. FMS is probably the best
known. Not as fancy as the expensive ones but it works and can really help
you get your aileron timing down. It will also help you learn to fly the plane
toward you.

The links offer other simulators plus sites that provides a cable that can
connect to
the trainer port on your radio so you can fly the sim using your own radio or
buddy box. I also list some exampels of low cost fully functional radios that
can run the sim AND fly a plane. I believe buddy boxes, which are not
functional radios, can also be used to run a simulator. Finally a low cost
used FM radio that has a trainer port would be an excellent way to run your
sim. I purchased a used Futaba conquest 4 channel FM radio for $10 to use as
a buddy box and to use on a simulator.

Then there is always the chance that someone at the club will loan you an
old radio with a trainer port so you can practice.

You have a link to get PRE?

Here's a link to a $25 USB controller:

What operating system do you have? FMS does not work well with anything above windows xp normally but some certain files help it work in windows vista/7/8
