Flight Simulators

I just got a new joystick, Saitek CYBORGevo, for BF2. but i want to use this joystick more so i can get my moneys worth out of it. so what i was wondering, what are some good flight simulators that i can get. i would like it to be combat simulators but if its good enough i will go for some other things. thx

my favourite flight combat game at the moment is a game called crimson skies, its quite old, but its still really good, its a pulp fictionish (alternate history) game based during the depression where zepplins have become used as millitary and cargo shipping vehicles, that can also launch planes. the single player is quite corny though. however i still reccomend you atleast give it a go, because of its age its quite cheap now on ebay and such

edit: what are you doing with a joystick for flight sims? a flight yoke works much better

edit again: if you want a game set in a more modern era, i have heard good things about LOMAC (lock on: modern air combat)

It's like a cross between a joystick and steering wheel. Similar to what you would have in a real plane.

Pacific fighters ( http://www.pacific-fighters.com/en/home.php?skin=S2 ) is the best WW-2 combat sim around.

LOMAC is probably the best jet sim, but jet sims have a steep learning curve.

If you can find a copy somewhere, Jane's WW-2 Fighters is still a fun game. It is easier than IL2/ Pacific Fighters. It is a good starter flight sim. Here is a screen shot of a third party overhaul of the Jane's P-51.

I really like the Janes games for combat flight sims, they usually allow you to dial in the difficulty/realism pretty well.

MS flight simulator is cool, but it gets a bit old just flying around

Lomac had great potential, and once you tweak the game to run and get past the learning curve its great fun playing online, stalking a target for miles using ir tracking and then getting close enough to gun him down before he knows what hit him.

But yeah, there are bugs and inaccuracies, and the learning curve is kinda steep.

edit: heh, see my sig, needs my spec as min to run decently.
