There are many simulators available today, from free downloadable versions to systems costing hundreds of dollars.
How do you select the one for you? My advice is to go with a model airplane simulator that has the reputation for-
EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
The Hanger 9 FSOne system fulfills all these requirements and more and the price is right!
A unique feature of this system is that you can use your own transmitter as the controller, thus keeping the price as low as possible!
However, we strongly recommend you buy the system with the controller. This means that your system is always ready to go and your transmitter trims and settings can stay set for flying.

Once you have purchased your simulator, please practice some discipline and use it, at least initially, to learn to fly towards you, as well as away from yourself.
Remember, every flight has 2 compulsory maneuvers, take-off and landing! So practice, practice, practice. Keep the video game side of simulators to a minimum
