He wants to BUY a helicopter package? That wouldn't be necessary ...

He can get lots of good free choppers at http://www.hovercontrol.com

Very helpful site too ...

I did look for payware too at some point but then I stumbled into
hovercontrol and I've been happy with their freeware choppers ever
since.

Good high quality stuff ...

And HoverControl has some forums that will have the pro's and con's of
each joystick. The last one I bought was a Sidewinder FF II and it's
not made anymore if i read right. And as Marco said, don't buy a
helicopter package, there are some great helicopters there already. I
don't think I've seen a payware helicopter??? Maybe I haven't been
watching close enough. :)

DodoSim's RealStart 206 is payware. In fact it's the only aircraft I've
ever bought.

Thanks John. I searched all over that web site and didn't find ....
Maybe I shouldn't write this but I cannot believe someone is charging
actual money for that ... aircraft.... I don't recognize anything in
the cockpit other than the OH-58 (bell 206) collective in the rear. It's
not possible someone is taking money for it. I can't say any more. But
I thank you for telling me about it.
