Has anyone tried Googles free flight simulator on google earth??
I was just playing it its actually pretty fun for a free flight sim.
Try it out guys. Go to tools then enter flight simulator.

Page up is to accelerate pg down to deaccelerate.
Look it up if you want more info.
Here are the controls:

Is it similar to the flight simulator game you can buy?

Its close enough.
To take off you press down or use the mouse controls.
There are some youtube video's. It's sick flying by the mountains but then a whole bunch of people are saying this is going to be a terrorist tool. Its fun I'm sure if you have a joystick It would be funner.

You should post a YouTube video. Yeah, it will be a terrorist tool. I'm going to crash my plan right into the biggest building in the middle east (excluding Israel of course).

Thats a great idea Eric I dont know if they have any big buildings.
But the only paki place I would go to is Dubai those palm tree islands are so sick!

That video was added in september... This isn't exactly 'new' even though I hadn't heard of it.

It was new to me ;).
I think that was a demo?
I just heard of it 1 week ago my cousin showed me and I downloaded the update.

I'll probably check it out once I get my laptop. I'm about 200-250 short of that point. So 2 weeks :D

Some of us dont feel like buying a game we will only play for 1 week or so for 100 dollars plus another 20 for the joystick.
