Flight Sim

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
what is the best yoke/rudder set up for a student pilot? Is fsx the best flight sim out or is there a better one for training? I saw a review saying that in flight rudder control doesn't work in fsx, is that true?

FSX has great detail and many training excercises. X-Plane 9 is also good, but I haven't fooled with it too much. I cannot comment on the rudder/yoke, as I don't have any, but I would assume that any USB peripheral could be mapped in game.

Hey i have been flying for many years now and also have had all the flight sim's out there and have found that the only thing that they are good for is Navigation. Learning how to navigate using vor to vor, ect. As far as flight yokes and rudder, CH makes the best, in my opinion. That my 2 cents...

Thanks for the post. Do you have any advice being someone that gone through the process to help me get the most out of my lessons and prehaps lower the totally training hours? What rating do you hold?
