Not only did I stall before take off, but once I actually DID manage to get off the ground, I immediately got lost, and then I couldn't find my way back to the airport. (And yes, I did select my home airport -- even changed the time to daytime with decent weather!) Additional attempts had me flying upside down briefly, making two crash landings and ending up in the water a few times, too.
Well, at least it's realistic!
But in fairness, I think it's not all me. I do think part of the issue is that the program is a bit choppy on the laptop. Also, "Ctrl + E", F1-4, and up and down arrows aren't quite the same thing as smoothly pushing the throttle in or out, or handling the control column of a real Cessna, lol!
Anyway, I guess I better save my pennies and get back into a real plane soon. Or at least invest in a joystick and rudder pedals, heh!
