I’m thinking of buying the Realflight8 simulator package £208 on your web site. Do you have a computer spec to operate it, I have a lap top running windows 10, which I have had for some time and need to be sure it would support the software. A video I’ve seen on the net says the transmitter needs changing from US to UK set up. As a complete novice would this be easy to do?
Asked by Alf Barker on 22nd September 2018

The official requirements are below and are quite basic. Essentially - any modern PC should be fine running this software.

There's no setup to do with the transmitter - just plug and play!

Asked by Mike Harris on 25th September 2018

We don't sell IT, so can't advise fully on your particular laptop - however if it's less than 3-5 years old I'm sure it'll be fine. 

Please see other Q&A items for the full minimum specs.

Do you need the wireless dongle if you have the Interlink TRansmitter?
Asked by Ed Goss on 5th January 2019

No, the interlink transmitter will plug into your PC using USB.

Hi, I'm a complete noob to rc flying which is why I've ordered this sim from you. Is the controller purely just for the sim or is it an actual transmitter that can be used for a model?
Asked by Danny on 10th March 2019

This controller is just for the sim - it has a USB cable instead of an antenna.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

I want t to fly R/C model aircraft. I have a Mac Computer and a smart TV. I’ve been looking at the Real Flight R8. Is that okay for beginners and is there anywhere I can see a demonstration and have a lesson? Kind Regards, Lloyd
Asked by Lloyd Johnson on 10th March 2019

This will only run on Windows, so you will need to run Windows in either bootcamp or parallels on your Mac.

In terms of demos, we can either show you this instore, or there are a myriad of demo videos on youtube which may be of more benefit

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Does this have settings for novices just learning
Asked by Thomas Barbour on 4th June 2019

Yes, you can fly on these as a complete novice. It's an ideal way to learn without the risk of crashing!
