I have been using RealFlight 8. I liked it very much and decided to try RealFlight 9. I am very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone. AMAIN is the perfect place to buy it from. Excellent service with great people doing a fantastic job especially with the pandemic causing so much devastation and hardship.

RealFlight 9 Flight Simulator (Software Only)
Very happy I upgraded from RF 7.5 to RF 9. People online say it was not worth it. After lots of reading that RF had worked on making the actual flight of the planes more realistic I hoped for the best and gave it a try. I am glad I did. This RF9 flies better. I used the interlink controller from Rf7.5 and just did the software. The planes do fly more like real life than previous versions. Closest yet or your going to get to the real thing. They fall from the sky more like a real rc plane. Gravity seems to be better. I am also happy with the new planes like Cessna Carbon Z 150. I own the real one and the so?s very close to flying my real plane very surprised and glad I upgraded. And a great time to do it with the down time at home.

The software seems pretty solid. I wish RealFlight would include more of the modern and/or popular planes. Haven't wrung it out real well yet, but no glitches so far. Beware the wireless dongle (separate) does not work with the Spektrum DX6i but does with the DX8

I would advise the future purchasers of this software that they should buy the system with the supplied controller. I bought the software only version as i desired to use my own controller. I purchased a cable interface which would not work with this software, as finally determined by the software supplier. I further had to search for a discontinued cable interface, which I finally found at a hobby shop and had to pay twice what was the normal cost. I am presently waiting for that cable and have been told by the supplier that this will in fact work. Time will tell. I searched for simulator software and this is the one touted to be the best. Buyer be ware.

Using with Windows 7 on my laptop with html cable to my 60 inch 4K tv. Very minor picture tearing. Brand New to RC flying. Just starting to learn to taxi and control my plane in a straight line on the ground and have flown in beginner mode a few times. Loving the program and saving a lot of money in plane repairs.

RealFlight 9 Flight Simulator (Software Only)
Greetings all. At 64 and just starting out in RC, wife and I, could not be happier. Only thing that could make it better is being able to use any controller not a select few. Had to get an adapter to use my FlySky controller, have to by two of everything(lol) you know.
That being said the training program for newbies is fantastic just not easy to repeat the training sections over and over. Getting to the main flight program very few training planes, understand training leads to faster and more acrobatic able planes. Flytest planes add on would be great and a lot of fun. Overall I give the program a 9 and recommend the simulator.

RealFlight 9 Flight Simulator (Software Only)
Very pleased with the performance however, the graphics are a bit grainy especially at any distance from the launch site. I am also a little disappointed that there are NO Flitetest aircraft in this version. I noticed that the Tiny Trainer was in a previous version but apparently was not included in this version.
All in all a satisfactory product but lacking the quality of graphics I had hoped for. I am using a 27" Monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Great way to practice. It's like buying insurance to protect your RC plane from a crash. Thanks
