Im new to all this but Im very interested in getting a flight simulator. Ive been looking at the flight simulator x but the only question I have is if its compatible with Windows 7? I have seen that its for windows xp and vista but I only have windows 7.
Another question is what would be the best controller.
Saitek pro flight yoke + throttle quadrant
Saitek rudder pedals
Saitek X52 joystick + throttle unit
For me I would like to fly the 747 planes and the other big planes. Not fighter jets. But sometimes I would like to try a fighter jet game but as of now mainly the bigger passenger planes. What would you guys suggest?
I've been running it on W7 since W7 came out (64bit). XP and Vista before that.
As for the controller, since this is your first time I would suggest the joystick, you could always advance to the yoke and pedals in a year or so if you find your enjoying flying.
