Great Sim! This a great took for anyone whether you are just starting and have never flown in real life or an expert pilot looking to practice your hardcore 3D moves. I would say this is 95% true to real life which is very close considering when you crash all you have to do is puch restart rather then get out the part numbers. I would recommened this to everyone so matter what your skill level is. It is also a great way to get in flying time when the weathers bad. I'm running my DX8 currently on the sim and love it. After I updated the sim with the phoenix website I had all the current moddels of my helis and lots of planes to try out before deciding which one to buy. Also I am running this on a macbook pro with bootcamp and windows 7 and have had no issues. Have flown on both RealFlight Sim and Phoenix 4 and Phoenix blows RF out the water. Definitely worth the money.
