Hone your skills in RealFlight's True-to-Life digital environment so you can pilot your physical models safely with confidence and style!

Beginner Airplanes and Helicopter Included

Practice in the simulator and you’ll be ready to solo the real thing in no time.

Fly at Eli Field

Eli Field is a well-equipped flying field in Monticello, IL. It’s the home flying field for Horizon Hobby, and many of the aircraft in this title were developed there! With side-by-side paved and grass runways, and plenty of open space, it’s the perfect place to learn to fly.

Learn from Experienced RC Pilots

RealFlight's training modules help take the mystery out of flying model aircraft. An experienced pilot talks you through the use of flight assistance features and gives you the knowledge you need to succeed.

Upgrade to RealFlight Evolution

When you are ready for over 300 more aircraft, more than 75 flying sites, and other features like Challenges and Multiplayer, you can upgrade to RealFlight Evolution. A discount is available on the RealFlight Evolution store page.

Controller Required

RealFlight requires a controller to run and supports a large number of options:

  • Option 1 (Recommended): For the best experience, we strongly recommend the Spektrum™ InterLink® DX simulator controller. It is specially designed for RealFlight and all your controls will come pre-configured by default.
  • Option 2: Use your own RC Radio with an interface. The Spektrum WS2000 wireless dongle works well for this, and there are other 3rd-party wireless interfaces available. This option may require some user setup.
  • Option 3: Use any 4-axis game controller such as a gamepad or an advanced flight stick.

*Note: See the Announcements and Community Discussion for purchase links.
