If you just want to do the flight simulator, you can download tons of pre-built planes for free to try, or you can build your own and test them out. There is a lot of variety in the pre-built planes, with fictional and sci-fi designs available along with realistic replica builds."

It's unnecessarily hard to do anything worthwhile while flying and there's not even a learning curve. It's just clunky. It's not fun to get better at because there's no getting better at it. It's just not good."

According to Zinn mindfulness is the state of being in the here and now free of the concerns of the past and the future. Maybe I can sum it up this way. I was here and now and the my worries about what was coming next and my memories of what happened in the past faded into the background. I just let them go."

    "This is the best flight simulator by far! I have used many different types, but this one is by far one of the most realistic ones out there. The graphics can be customized and imagees are total realistic. It even keeps my little brother busy when he is over!"

    "X-Plane 10 is a realistic flight simulator that makes you feel like you're piloting an actual plane. While it succeeds as a simulator, it's graphics are outdated."

    "I was excited about X-Plane 10 but honestly, I found it to be a huge let down. It's definitely not even close to being one of the best flight sims for windows. Some of the aircraft are not fully developed (lacking cockpits, etc), the airports are horrible, there are NO instructions so if you don't 100% know what you are doing.. good luck, and everything is so tricky to calibrate. I'll be getting my money back on this one."
