When I first obtained my "Real Flite G5.5 sim I found myself "bouning" landings, a problem that I had not had in actual RC flight.

Seems the default setting on the sim caused me to come in "hot" ergo the "bounce" upon touch-down. This, not being a good thing, I pondered corrective actions.

When I "ditched" the landing default I was better able to slow the landing speed to eliminate the "bounce".

Some sims have not taken the laws of physics into account so sometimes are not accurate for certain types of flight like 3d.

Fly with the RF sim set for sunny day and add back in your aircraft shadow if you removed it. That will help with the landings. One of the bad things I also found out about RF was the lack of plane to ground reference when you got close to landing, the edges are a bit fuzzy there.

PV:

When I dumped the RF landing deficits, the on-screen image also expanded to allow a wider field of vision.

Nice and helpful improvement.

Dave...

When your landing... put yer FLAPS DOWN!!!! - Pappy Confucius (479 BC) Airplane

Seriously... I must of saved 100,000 dollars in crashed airplanes and heli's using the early versions of realflite.. The best thing to do on a rainy day too...

I agree butthe best thing to do on a rainy day is to build or repair a balsa model.

Of course, with enough flight sim practice you won't have any balsa planes to repair. Sad

Think POSITIVELY!!

Not too sure about that, not all crashes are due to pilot error nut I aggree with enough practice it is possible to crash a lot less.

None the less pilot error is the #1 cause of crashes.

Those having problems with a sim very likely haven't read or understood the manual provided by the manufacturer.

DUMBBBBBB!

Back in the early days,,those crappy nicad rec packs were the #1 cause. flying along and the thing just drops from the sky as you input like a madman trying to save it.

Realflight really benefits from the best video card you can install in your system. I installed the best GForce card I could and it eliminated alot of the problems.

Not all sims are good by no means. My first sim was an FMS given be by a friend who gave it to with the admonition: "Good luck!" with a wry smile. I sensed that there might be a problem but erred in the assumption that I was smarter than he was.

Anyone want a free FMS flight sim? lol!

I had one of the early versions of Real Flight, but found the addons costly and new versions to be unreasonably expensive.

I've been using the Phoenix sim recently since it's fully compatible with my present TXs (I do have adapters for Futaba TXs) and the helicopter physics are probably the best currently available.

Secondly, Phoenix provides free upgrades and model downloads as they become available. But, to get the most out of a sim, do what we always say in computing, RTFM (Read The Fine Manual). Futaba Radio

beez: Because we started discussing the realative advantages of different flight simulators?

What's wrong with that?

It was in the cox discussions section so i suppose he moved it here because it is a off the topic of cox engines.
