Which should you buy will be your choice. You probably will get strong opinions here, but many will be based on their one type that they use. I like my my RealFlight and have no complaints, but I have not tried any others long enough to give a yea/nay to them.
Seems to me RC Heli had a review of the many SIMS but I don't know what issue. Mabe a fellow RR member can tell you what issue.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I use XTR, If I were to buy one again it'll be XTR.

In this next year or so there is gonna be some big updates including online play and they are always trying to improve something that I for one think is good already

You will find though like has been, said most people will recommend the one they already own

Ok, i think if i ask three persons whith three different sims i gues i get three different answers. I have to make my own choise.
So i have ordered the Phoenix simulator from my lokal hobby dealer, and it will be in stock again later next week. That is the simulater he rekomended and the one he sales the moast of.

It's great and perfectly understandable. Keep us posted on your sim experience when you get it.

School English? Most of us here speak and write good old American slang! Btw, the slang changes on a weekly basis.

Reflex XTR is good one. If you want something free of charge, you can get the FMS free sim (but the graphic is not good compare to the paid sim)

Its not that simple an answer and it completely depends on what you want the simulator for. I have a sophisticated set of criteria below to differentiate which sim you should get based on your needs.

Lets get started...

If you're a beginner
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

...Intermediate
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

...Advanced, looking to improve and hone your 3D skills
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

If you want to fly with other people on the "interweb superinformation highway".
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

If you wish to test various designs and customize your own planes and helicopters to create a real aircraft you want to fly, or are considering buying in a certain configuration. Like electrifying 50-size heli to emulate a 10S setup, right down to the motor parameters which make a motor unique - KV, IO, and motor resistance. If you want to determine the weight and dimensions of the damn tail fin and the weight and dimensions of the blades you are using.
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

To observe the realtime operational parameters of an experimental RC plane / helicopter you have designed. Amps, Voltage, remaining battery/fuel, airspeed, watts in/out, motor efficiency, rotor RPM, engine RPM, and more.
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

If you still just don't know what to get and these criteria are too confusing to make a decision.
R E A L F L I G H T G 3

Phoenix gets my vote, great graphics and easy to understand was recommended to me by a guy at my local flying club, and it is very competitivelt priced in comparison to the others available

At last. Now i have used my Phoenix sim for about a week. And im wery satisfied
Great graphics and easy to understand and also esy to config.
I also have update my Phoenix to 1.04b and it was totaly great. It included all my three helis, TT Raptor 50(Titan), T-Rex 450SE and my brand new T-Rex 600N Pro.
The Phoenix sim was cheeper than the Reflex, and what i heard the Reflex and Phoenix used the same graphic engine. So for me and my JR radio the Phoenix sim is the best solution

Congratulations on your purchase!

I have used FMS, demo of Clearview (kept freezing on me) and I own Phoenix. FMS and Clearview don't seem to have the physics down like Phoenix does.
