Thread: Is Flightgear worth buying

  1. Cool Is Flightgear worth buying

    Hello, I'm thinking about buying the flight simulator 2020 from eBay or amazon, I read some reviews about it some good and some bad, some said that the installation is kind confusing, but my question is it worth the money, I was thinking about getting the one with the eight disk with the thump drive.
    So, if everyone have any feed back or advice, I will be please to hear it, like I said, I'd thinking about buying for the main reason because it said it comes with 600 aircraft. I be please to get a response as soon as possible. Thank! From your fellow SimPilot

    FlightGear is open source software that is available for free. Those people calling it "Flight Simulator 2020" or whatever are running a scam. Just go to the official FlightGear web site and download the latest version:

    I just downloaded problems encountered. Looks like a good place to start.

    I installed FlightGear before buying X-Plane 11 and surprisingly, there are some elements of fgfs that aren't present in standard X-Plane 11.

    However, I only have time for one flight sim so on last use, I was learning to hover and land the helicopter on platforms in XP11.
