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.
