Aerofly sim not free
Aerofly RC is also available on STEAM!
Aerofly is a great simulator for the price and has lots of helicopters and planes to choose from.
Clearview Rc Sim not free
I first upgraded to Clearview using a USB link with my 4 channel transmitter for a higher quality setup, the tensor 4D and Yak 54 33% is very fun with this setup.
Benefits of connecting an RC Simulator Controller vs. an actual Rc Radio is NO batteries are required to operate the controller with a Simulator Controller and no worries about batteries getting low.
Upgrade to Clearview is recommended if you want more sim models otherwise fms and free heli sim will also work to help fine tune your skills if you don't want to invest $80 to $200 in high end sims!
