There should have been a selection, Want to be one, but have not tried it yet!
I would love to try it out, at least have someone with me that knows how, so I don't pile my new plane into the ground on the first flight

Tried once. Bought me a plastic aircraft for 100Euro. First it went up, then it went down, hard, so my 100Euro was lost.
Haven't tried anymore since then.Regards Anders Eriksson

I have a small RC twin. Its way too light to fly on most days here because the trade winds take it and toss it willy-nilly.God's in command, I'm just the Pilot.

So let's see here..........
You take a tiny lightweight "lipstick" video camera and hook it to a HAM TV band tranceiver, and you then mount that camera in the nose of an RC aircaft so the lens is where the pilot would be. Then you get normal RC controls and interface them to the controls in a simpit. Then you feed the camera output to the main video display projector of the simpit.
Then you build a scale model airport and put the plane at the airport.
Merging of about five hobbies into one. "As real as it gets!" Sort of like the military use of the Predator drones......without the use of the Hellfire missles, however .

Use to but it is a lot cheaper to just hit the reset button in FS..... Stopped spending my money on the RC stuff and put it in the sim...Bob Reed
