Who makes the best sim for Heli's nowadays, and do I need a CDR drive to use it ? Thanks in advance for any and all opinions.

I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Its hard to say, BEST, for anything in life. I am happy with Realflight, as happy as I can be flying on a screen. Personal opinion, others will disagree. Try them all and keep what works best for you

Best bang for the buck and no dongle needed other than a usb cord is neXt rc sim.

I've been flying for years and am looking for a new sim. I have Reflex that doesn't work any more.

To properly answer that question, we would have to know more about your computer's age and capabilities.

The answer changes whether you have a hot gaming laptop or an old under-powered machine.

If I were you, I would pay careful attention to the software's hardware requirements and not go for minimal hardware. The more, the better means you will have a better experience. There are sims for all levels.

Good advice as I don't have a "hot gaming computer"

The Next does look very cool as does Realflight.

I think a trip to the Hobby Shop to try it is in order.

You can download neXt and try it for free for a time period before you purchase it.

You should skip the brand new Real Flight-X based on your comment. Real Flight 7.5 may run, but pay attention to hardware requirements.

There is Phoenix (which I also own), but prefer RF. I think that it is a good sim that needs less expensive hardware. That is just a personal preference... Phoenix is very good.

I know that there are other good sims out there, I just don't own them so cannot provide firsthand knowledge. Don't get caught up in the sim wars. Everyone has their own favorite.

Most good sims will require a graphics card and upgraded power-supply to run. Graphics cards can run from $50 to $800 and even higher. The power supply will be around $100 for 750watts.

I buy a lot of the Real Flight drone version with controller and then buy the RF7.5 software upgrade. This is the cheapest way to have both products. If I could only afford one... I would get the 7.5 version with the USB controller.

In the long run, using your radio on the computer only wears out the radio. After a while, it does not matter what controller you use. They pretty much all feel the same.

After checking my favorite laptop toughbook, it doesn't have the requirements to run Next. I'll have to do some more research on Phoenix and Realflight.

Back couple of years ago I liked Phoenix...the fact I could fly my 11X wireless was a big deal to me when I got lazy and flew in bed off the big flat screen on wall
