We happened to be near an R/C hobby shop yesterday so we went in. They had a PC with RealFlight R/C flight simulator set up. It was really neat to be able to fly an R/C plane, crash it, reset, and try again. It had a real R/C controller. I assume it can simulate harsh New Mexico desert winds. Unfortunately, the price is $100 for the most basic version. I think you can get a cheap battery-powered plane for that much. As long as you don’t crash it, it’s more cost effective. I wonder if those trick R/C helicopter pilots practice with this software.
