Default 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!!
Anthony

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

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!!
