This is the Great Planes RealFlight 7.5 Flight Simulator, with an included Wired Transmitter Interface. Even experienced pilots use RealFlight to keep learning and polishing skills when they can't be at the field. The RF7.5 Wired Transmitter Interface Edition makes that practice even more valuable. With the included interface, you control the sim with the same R/C transmitter you take to the field!

Plug the interface into your transmitter and your computer's USB port. A set-up window helps you quickly configure RealFlight to be controlled by the same radio you use to fly real models.

You'll find one of RealFlight's most popular features, the "Reset/Rewind" button, on the interface. After a crash, push the Reset button to get right back into the action. Or hold it down to go back to any point during your last flight for an instant do-over.

RealFlight flies more like "real life" than any other R/C sim. Reach ever-greater levels of expertise using your favorite radio and this interface-equipped edition of the world's #1 R/C flight simulator!

Great Planes RealFlight 7.5 w/Wired Transmitter Interface
Having experience with one of the first versions of RealFlight namely RealFlight G2 years prior, I couldn't help but try the Interfaced RealFlight 7.5. First of all, I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 10 and at first had my doubts about RF running successfully on the then new OS but took a chance anyway and was pleasantly supprized to find that not only did it install easily but ran flawlessly and have yet to experience a crash. I fly mainly helicopters and bought the Wired interfaced version so I could use my JR XP9303 flight Transmitter and found the interface to work very well. Model selection is impressive with a good selection of heli's and fixed wing "Airplanes" and while there are some quirks like strange flight characteristics for the standard heli's that came with the sim which were easily corrected using my transmitter, the sim operates wonderfully and is very smooth and realistic, very important for a sim to work properly as a training tool which I use it for and is very adjustable with many flight perimeters that can be tailored to adapt the model to an individual pilot's needs which is superb, they really did their homework on the physics engine. In the end, I am very happy with it and I highly recommend Realflight 7.5 to anyone wishing to learn RC or just want to have fun! (Dave F. AMA 380153)

I bought this having previously owned Clearview. Clearview is great for the 40 bucks it costs but I was looking for some more dynamic physics. I bought RF7.5 for my I7 equipped laptop with Intel HD4400 GPU. Luckily I can run it at the highest settings. I was a bit irked with some initial glitches-having to use ALT to get the menu to toggle, and having to reset the environment to get it into fullscreen without the menu bar. I'm on Windows 8.1. But man this simulator is very accurate, dynamic and intense. I only fly helicopters and noticed the helis that come with game are tuned pretty weird, whereas the custom user helis on KnifeEdge are much more ball park. The "physics" actually change with each model, with the intent to replicate how that model actually flies. And the right custom helicopter can revolutionize your simulator experience. The Logo700xxV2 comes to mind- this of course being my personal opinion. You'll have to find your own model you love, but wow they are as close to real life as I ever felt. Go to GroniMod and get all the new Competition Goblins. You'll be happy. They are picture perfect and fly even better. I used an HDMI into my Samsung LCD for 46 inches of helicopter perspective. The graphics are incredible but what really shines is the finite control and response of the helicopter and its reaction to speed, G forces, and cyclic/collective input. The 700 class feels more floaty and predictable than the 450 class, the collective is reactive to the wind speed forces, and the model has a good feel for speed during FFF. I've got the models to work as far back as RF6.5 so far. Tons of models and fields to chose from. If you fly RC, it'd be hard to not own this simulator.
