SEEMS TO STOP ONE FROM USING NEXSTAR UNLESS ONE USES NEXSTAR TRANSMITTER AS SIMILATOR. DO NOT WANT TO USE THAT SINCE ALREADY G2 ONE NOT REQUIRING BATTERIES ETC.

steinr, I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you saying that you can't have both RealFlight G2 and the G2: NexSTAR Edition installed on your computer at the same time? Or are you wondering why you can't fly the NexSTAR in your full G2?
If your question is the former, they're designed to coexist without problems. Post some more info about what's happening or contact tech support. If your question is the latter, the answer is that they are completely separate products, even though the NexSTAR Edition is based on the full version of G2. Since the NexSTAR Edtion adds a new feature found on the actual NexSTAR model--the AFS--there is simply no way around the situation at this time.

I ALREADY HAVE THE SIMILATOR FOR G2. WHEN I INSTALLED NEXSTAR AND WANTED TO RUN IT FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH HIGH HOPES OF NOT HAVING TO USE
THE TRANSMITTER AND CABLE THAT COMES WITH IT. THE SOFTWARE SEEMS NOT TO HAVE THE SMART OR ANY
OPTION TO SEE I ALREADY HAVE THE SIMILATOR G2 IN
THE USB READY TO GO.
WHY DOES ONE HAVE TO HOOK UP THE REAL TRANSMITTER
TO GET THE NEXSTAR VERSION TO RUN.
NOTE I AM NOT TRYING TO RUN G2 AT THE SAME TIME.
SEEMS SOFTWARE IS MISSING TO LOOK AROUND AND USE
EXISTING SIMILATOR WHICH IS BETTER THAN WASTING TIME HOOKING UP THE OTHER.

How about this for a great marketing tool to sell more NexStars: offer the software to existing RF G2 users, sell it at a reduced price, or as a limited time demo to hook new buyers.
I'm considering the purchase of a new trainer for my son and I to use, and am interested in the Hobbico NexStar. Would REALLY be useful to be able to fly it a while via RF G2, but it appears the only way one can do this is to buy the plane first.
How about a limited time demo of the NexStar RealFlight program with AFS (30 days?)? Or, you could charge for the program ($25?) then credit the price against the purchase of a NexStar when buyers choose to buy the plane.
I'm mostly concerned with how well our 11 year old could handle a plane of this size & complexity, and would like to make this deterination PRIOR to purchasing the plane.
Thanks. Happy Holidays.

I am new to RC. I had been trying to fly electrics for a month and the breeze was winning. I got G2 to try and improve. THrough G2 I learned some of the characteistics of basic triners vs park flyer/electrics. I decided a 40 size glo trainer was the way to go. I wound up getting a NEXTStar. The NEXTStar is similar in size to the PT-40. However, thanks to the airfoil extensions and speed flaps it is slower and more predictable. Try flying the PT-40 in G2. If you can handle that, the NEXTStar will be a piece of cake.
