The Esky flight simulator kit is one of the best value simulators available for anyone learning to fly RC planes – or even for experienced pilots who just want to keep their skills sharp when it’s too wet or windy to fly the real thing. The controller is really nicely built – all you need to do is install the simulator software and plug the controller into your PCs USB port. If you’re thinking of getting into RC planes, you’ll save yourself a lot of money and trouble by learning on a simulator first, and the Esky simulator is easily one the best ones available. I’ve been flying “big sky” brushless planes for a few years, but have recently taken up flying 3D planes. Esky has been an excellent tool for learning some of those tricky 3D manoeuvres without running the risk of trashing my plane. If you’re a beginner, then definitely check out Esky – even if you’re an experienced RC pilot, Esky can still be a very valuable tool (literally!) when trying out new models. It’s also heaps of of fun when the weather won’t let you fly the real thing!
