X-Plane Deluxe 8

Absolute waste of $$$$

I bought this a few months ago for $60 to help me learn to hover in an R22 helicopter. I also bought MSN Flight Sim 2000 for $20. The sys req on the box matched my system, but I couldn't get the game to play very well. Every time I got into a helicopter, the thing rolled over to the right and crashed every time, then would either freeze or play a replay of the wreckage. Then my mac crashed so I bought the latest mac a few weeks ago and guess what? Even though my system far exceeds the requirements of this game, it tells me I need to update and buy a new computer! Even on the lowest frame rate and details settings. And I'm still experiencing the same problem - as soon as I get into the helicopter it drives itself into what seems like dynamic rollover and destroys itself....and it's not my flying that is doing that!

MSN Flight Sim on the other hand, is worthy product if you are looking to experience flight in the safety of your armchair. It accelerated my training and saved me big $$$$ in repeated hover lessons. A very realistic and excellent tool for instrument training, too.
