Learn to fly

One thing that I’ve wanted to do was to fly a simulator. I don’t have any desire to fly an actual plane, but just to learn how it works.

I purchased Microsoft Flight Simulator X and a Saitek Yolk System.

Here are some annoying things

1) Not enough USB ports on my computer. I’ve resorted to a tiny keyboard/touch pad combo. The game tutorial talks about using the keyboard numberpad which I dont have. Luckily the saitek yolk has at least some of the controls ( view left, right, back ) on the stick.

2) No manual or any reference for the saitek yolk’s buttons. This sucks. I need to discover what each of the buttons do.

3) Graphics suck. Boy its bad. holy crap its bad. $30 spent and I want to go buy X-Plane.
