    Sim for 5 yr old

    Hi Guys,
    I am looking to get a Sim for flight training for my 5yr old grandson. I was looking at Realflight 6 but It apears you have to use your transmitter to link to the PC ? I really don't want my grandson using my Hitec Aurora on the PC.
    Is there a cheaper controller I can get to hook up to the Sim? I want to give him the best advantage at learning on the PC before starting actual flight training. We will be building him a trainer over the winter and I want to get him started soon.
    Maybe there is another Sim out there with an included controller?

    Thanks!!

    It's not the hours you put in It's what you put into the hours.

    RF 6 has it's own transmitter. Optionally, you can use the older controller or your own transmitter.

    I was afraid it didn't come with a controller.

    WACONUT,

    Have you concidered buying a controller on EBAY. The older 72 mzh transmitters are very cheap and usually com with their own charger.

    Just a thought.

    I just picked up a Tower Traner 40 ready to fly with a Futaba radio for $75 for my Grandson. I will set this aside until he learns how to fly on the sim. Hopefully next spring he will start his actual flight training.
    Later!!
