RealFlight® Trainer Edition

Success in learning to fly RC starts with RealFlight!

RF Trainer Box

RealFlight® is the #1 RC flight simulator in the world! It's also the absolute best tool new RC pilots can use when learning how to fly. With 6 different aircraft — including 1 helicopter and 5 of the most popular trainer airplanes from the Best Brands in RC — plus Virtual Flight Instructor lessons perfect for first-time pilots, RealFlight Trainer Edition has everything you need to succeed in learning to fly RC because you can practice "flying" on a computer before you fly your model at the field!

RealFlight Trainer Edition runs on a wide variety of PCs from laptops to desktops running Windows® 7, 8 or 10. It's compatible with the Spekturm™ InterLink® DX Simulator Controller (SPMRFTX1, sold separately) that connects directly to a USB port for easy plug and play use. Or you can use the WS2000 USB Dongle (SPMWS2000, sold separately) with a compatible Spektrum 2.4GHz transmitter, like the DXe or DXS transmitters included with many of the most popular Ready-To-Fly (RTF) trainer aircraft, for wireless operation. Either way, you get an authentic experience unlike any other because you'll be able to use the same controls to "fly" on a desktop at home, or on a laptop just about anywhere!

After you learn the basics of flying, RealFlight Trainer Edition also makes it possible to learn new maneuvers including aerobatics like loops, rolls, inverted (upside down) flight and more. Plus you can upgrade to the latest full edition of RealFlight, at a discounted price of $69.99 any time via Steam (upgrade information is included in the software), to fly more than 160 different aircraft — including airplanes, helicopters, drones and more — at over 40 different flying sites to hone your skills so you become an even better pilot. With the full edition of RealFlight, you'll also have the ability to edit aircraft and sites so there's an almost infinite number of flying options available. Add in game-like challenges that make ongoing flight training fun, multiplayer options so you can fly and compete with other pilots online, compatibility with VR headsets, plus many more features, and you have even more ways to succeed at the field!
