Ok, I have got Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe Edition for some time now but I never bothered playing it until now. I checked the system requirements and it's all good. In fact, I installed it and played it when I first got it but it became really hard to fly with the mouse. I stopped in the aircraft taxiing mission after it became too hard. I thought I could control the plane with the mouse but I was gravely wrong. I reckon it's nearly impossible to control the aircrafts with a mouse and even worse is a keyboard I suppose.
I'm concerned that fsx might be too hard for someone who is not a pilot but I hear it being used by non-pilots all the time. I'm an aviation enthusiast. This is my first time using any flight simulator apart from flightgear. I just really wanted to know if MS flight simulator x is beginner friendly or not. Does it actively teach beginners how to fly and all that? Is it hard to learn for beginners or will I manage? Is there a step by step practical tutorial teaching beginners some of the basics of flying in fsx?
Also, I will need a good joystick. I looked around and there are so many around. So many that I can't really make up my mind. Can you recommend me some really good joysticks which I can use in fsx. I'm particularly looking for one with force feedback.
Thanks for reading !!
