Default Best Flightsim Package

Hey all,

Im sure you guys have heard this question like a gazillion times... but i am considering purchasing a flight sim package. I currently fly in Expert class in pattern and am seriously considering getting into helis, i would like to be able use my current radio transmitter if possible and connect to my pc via a usb adapter cable of such thing exists and it would be great to go for a sim with the better physics and graphics. It would be great to hear some feedback on which sim i should be looking at.

Happy flying!

I have used both of these simulators, there are things I like and dislike about both, I kept realflight, and sold FSONE and Phoenix. My interlink is broke right now though (dislike the cheapo interlink)

My advice is not to get caught up in the whole "which one is better" debate (as I did) you'll just spend a bunch of extra money and still wind up with a training aid.
None of them really seem very "real" to me, but I do use it for trying new stuff.
