Default iPad flight simulators?

I no longer own a computer and do everything on-line with a Apple iPad. Are there any recommended flight simulator apps for the iPad? Thanks.

I'm curious if you find one how will the Tx be connected? Would you need to get a dongle to create a USB port?

My RCA $80 Android tablet has a USB...

Apple hasn't figured that out yet for their $600 device?

iPad flight sims all have one big problem, they all use the touch screen to simulate the control sticks, so you get no feel for were the sticks are or even if your thumbs are even on the sticks.

Worthless if you ask me.

Try RC Plane 2. To me it is the most realistic and I have the best response with my thumbs on the touch screen sticks. In general however I agree with Paul80 - the others I've tried are no good.

Heck, they just shoved the new iPhones to market crammed with exciting new features like moving photos, listening to you while on standby, why, almost as good as my Moto X was TWO YEARS AGO, plus significantly lower screen resolution than current LG and Samsung phones and inferior camera. Now they're shutting down and overheating. Way to innovate, Apple. Time is passing you by.
