To start off, you should buy Realflight flight sim. It is a great sim that I highly advise you to get before you start flying in real life. You will have to get a transmitter specifically for that simulator which will be provided in the bundle. I would recommend phoenix sim but i cannot find where to buy that sim anywhere anymore. For a transmitter, i would recommend the spektrum dx6e for your first transmitter. For a first plane after you feel comfortable with the controls, I would recommend the bixler from hobbyking, It is a great 4 channel model that is great for beginners and relatively cheap. You will also need a good 3 cell battery to go with it along with a charger to change the battery. I will send you a links to everything.

I would also concur on the RealFlight recommendation, but also add that some flight transmitters will have a USB joystick output that doesn't require special hardware to interface with RealFlight. One such TX would the be FrSky series running OpenTX. That might save some money and not require a dedicated TX for sim use. In fact, I prefer using my flight TX with a sim to test out configurations.

Dear makattack,
I also have same idea before! But i think FrSKy don't support RF-X sim. Thank you!

I successful use my x9d+ as a usb joystick under real flight 8 from the steam store. Maybe some older versions don't support usb sticks.

Also, the hardware to interface is relatively inexpensive. I bought a wireless USB dongle made by OrangeRX that was something like $6-$7 through HK...Works with RealFlight, Aerofly 8, Liftoff, Velocidrone, and a number of other flight sims I've tested. They have one for FrSky radios and one for Spektrum radios.
