They think it's more fun to fly the real one, I suspect. :P

Yes, and i think that they think it is much easyer in real Kamov.You know they have everything, best forcefedback joystick, perfect FPS,trackir, ruder pedals...

I don't have nothing of that...:smilewink: ...and i'm still flying.

Real pilots have one huge advantage - their asses. You get a serious amount of sensory feedback through your backside in an aircraft. Of course, you have to learn to ignore it when learning instruments, but still, feel is an important thing.

don't think the ka-50 ever went into mass production & i'm sure i've read somewhere that there are only about 20 left in service for special ops - so pretty unlikely they'll be a pilot around.

 

btw, i hope people don't take this the wrong way but anytime i've seen them in videos on youtube, they all seem much older than i would expect - like 45+. also that guy from chernaya akula is getting on a bit. is this usual for helicopter pilots? what's their average age?

 

not that i'm saying that middle aged men can't enjoy computer games! just that the pool of oldish, ex-soviet, highly specialised pilots that want to play combat sims is probably fairly small

Not so, I (and a handful of others here) know of at least one.

 

I won't state who he is since it's not my place (his call, not mine) and since he still plays the sim, I would assume he more than likes it.
