Default best helicopter simulator

lease can i have some advice as to which is the most accurate helicopter simulator, to use with a futaba 6exhp transmitter.
I don't care what the field or the model looks like, what is important is that the simulation can be made to mimic as near as possible the flying characteristics of a Arc-400 heli and accept the Futaba transmitter settings.
best regards from a wet and windy England

I use AFPD and it is quite realistic.... but many people say that Reflex is the best for Heli's... I have tried it a few times, but it was a while back.... but it seems to be the most popular for the pure heli crowd.....

I fly both heli's and planes and find AFPD to be the best mix of both...

Reflex XTR.

Unless you want to do a mix of FW/heli then AFPD.

I don't know about accurate, but I'm learning helis on G3. Many people have told me that G3 is accurate, but I can't verify it.

Well I own and fly many helis and have all 3 sims, XTR and AFPD are both real awesome. The helis out of the box seem better on XTR, but the physics on AFPD seems better. Also weather effecting the helis works best on AFPD for sure.

Well here's my view:

For Helis

1. XTR
2. AFPD/G3 (can't choose between them)

For Planes as well as Helis

1. AFPD
2. G3/XTR (again can't choose between the two)

I now have all 3 sims toooo, and fly a lot of both helis and planes in real life.

BW!

Greg.
