    General Comments

    Haven't checked to see if I can custom build an aircraft. Usually fly a C-172 and the SP is right on. Would like to figure out a way to imitate a C-182 but will play with the settings. Haven't had time to really get into it yet.

    Accurate description of product
    Pros

    An excellent price on this system. The system itself, which I've owned for perhaps 2 weeks, is slow on my desktop but there's a whole bunch going on there and it's clear that I need a faster processor.

    Cons

    Nothing much really. I'm about a 2 on a scale of 1-10 for computer gaming navigation skills but am still finding it pretty easy to navigate the control panel.

    General Comments

    I'm quite happy so far!

    Super flight training aid
    Pros

    -- Infinitely customizable, for control position(s), switch functions and control responsiveness
    -- Inexpensive way to build familiarity with key aircraft flight controls when used concurrent with a flight training course.
    -- Turning on 'live weather updates' permits the simulator to present real time weather conditions to train in

    Cons

    -- Limited airport database to operate from (tried planning a cross-country to the class E strip near my in-laws, and the airport ID wasn't in the database)
    -- Cannot swap aircraft types in the pre-loaded training missions (I wanted to change out the J-3 Cub for the Cessna 172 I'm training in IRL, to make the lesson more applicable, and couldn't, for example)

    General Comments

    I learn best by doing, and the Saitec Flight Simulator package is a versatile tool for me to reinforce instruction I've received from my Flight Instructor, permitting me to train in the same aircraft that I'm learning to fly in, or to see how aircraft of a different class (everything from an ultralight to jumbo jet to helicopter to military fighter) might respond under the same conditions and control inputs. It doesn't replace training under a CFI's tutoring, but it certainly maximizes the 'bang for the buck' when used in conjunction with your CFI's instruction.

    Overall, great value!

    Not what I was hoping for
    Pros

    Better than running through a flight in your head

    Cons

    Not realistic
    Creates Bad Flying habits

    General Comments

    I've been whating to write this review until I had plenty of time to play around with it. Honestly not what I expected after reading the reviews. Not realistic at all and therefore creates bad flying habits. There have been times where I have left the simulator running and came back and it was as if it was running on autopilot. No Cessna performs that well. I am currently working on an instrument rating and was hoping the simulator would save me some money by giving me some practice approaches. However, flying an approach with the simulator is nothing like flying them in real life. I highly discourage student pilots from buying this. Save your money and spend it actually flying. I would also discourage instrument pilots from buying this because it doesn't really help you out. I fly single engine so this product may be of use in the jet world but not to single engine pilots.

    Cons

    My graphics are very poor but it might be my monitor resolution. Control and throttle responses are not realistic.

    General Comments

    I may be able to work my way into having a good simulator. As of now I just have a game because it doesn't come too close to simulating real flying. I'm willing to give it a long learning curve tho and will see how it does with a better monitor.

    Mixed feelings on this product.
    Pros

    Affordable; much better to buy from Sporty's than Saitek. Saitek is not the greatest company. Flight Simulator X is amazing.

    Cons

    The throttle quadrant was not working when I first received it. It is not made well; cheap construction. The company Saitek itself has horrible customer service. The yolk does not work quite right, if I turn the yolk too far, I get full power for some reason despite manually setting the controls. It is not user friendly and although it says its set up mainly for FSX, it does not seem to want to work properly.

    General Comments

    The throttle quadrant was not working when I first received it, so I made the mistake of calling Saitek instead of Sporty's. I was kept on hold for over an hour before they hung up on me. I naively tried two more times to get ahold of someone, anyone at Saitek. I only waited 20 minutes the second and third times on hold before hanging up and calling back. The fourth time I called, the woman gave me a number that went to a full voicemail. I hate Saitek now.
    I then called Sporty's, one call, was not placed on hold and they replaced it right away. Should have called them first time!

    Accurate feel and reaction. Very well constructed. Interface with computer simple.

    Cons

    Operating instructions are inadequate. Saitec needs to do a better job of directing users as to how to use the item out of the box. I still have not figured out what switches control what.

    General Comments

    I'm sure I will enjoy it much more when I figure it out more. As with most things, ability comes with trial and error practice.

    Equipment arrived on time (3 days) and intact. Setup went smoothly and ran first time up. Just starting to experiment with possibilities- real time weather works very well.

    Cons

    None so far, one lock-up at 23,000 ft with the Airbus. I only wish MSF included a Piper Archer II.

    General Comments

    Works as advertised, will be a great tool to augment learning the real thing.
