Unhappy Real Flight is NO GOOD unless it has my aircraft

I see messages over and over requesting a particular aircraft and disappointment when it does not exist.

1.) If you are using this simulator to learn how to fly, it really does not make a bit of difference what you choose in a high wing trainer. Having your aircraft will not make it easier or faster. You need to spend the hours, not your money. You cannot buy this skill no matter what electronics package comes with your aircraft.

2.) A Mustang is not a beginner aircraft. Learn to fly first. This goes the same with many low wing planes. You should look for planes with upraised wingtips (dihedral). These types are much more stable for training.

3.) Swap Page aircraft are not uniform. They may fly well, or not depending on the author who has received no compensation for the effort. Concentrate on the standard aircraft shipping with Real Flight. Those aircraft are consistent and have many users.

4.) Practice Takeoffs and Landings. Learn to fly the most important aspects of flight first and thoroughly. This will pay dividends. Learn where your plane needs to be in the sky to be on the landing path.

5.) Smooth is good. When you drive, do you crank the steering wheel in huge movements? Same goes for RC Aircraft, small smooth movements of the sticks are required. Concentrate on where you want to go in the next 5 seconds, not where you are.

A Good Pilot can fly any plane. If you want to fly the real thing, fly the sim as if it were the real thing. If you just want to bomb and strafe, that is good too! Don't let me stop you. It is not the plane, it is YOU.
