I'm in the process of setting up Microsoft Flight Simulator ( The best most realistic simulator in my opinion) it won't break the bank either. Shop around online...I've seen specials for $49.99. The flight characteristics are very close to the real thing. I've flown(Real) Cessna 150's so I know the sim is the closest thing to flying a real aircraft. Many flight schools use MSFS 2020. Hope this helps.

I think he's looking for an FPV quad simulator, Liftoff is a popular one.

FS2020's awesome for full scale indeed though, especially for FPV with a VR headset :D

Have you heard of or checked out X-Plane?

Hi...I highly recommend a simulator managed by an individual who releases new versions every 6 to 12 months. The flight simulator is called Curry Kitten. On github it's free, or at least used to be. Through Steam it is $1.99.
It's a lot of fun, and there is a game called Quad Ball that will really hone your drone flying skills.

Try liftoff by the Rotor Riot team. Very realistic and only 29.99. It is recognized as a standard in the FPV hobby.

I have only used FPV Freerider, perhaps not the best, but it's free and I got it running on my tablet and pc.
It has certainly improved my overrall real life flying, particularly in Acro mode.

I think the DJI FPV sim is free. I've seen mixed reviews of how good it is, but since it only runs on iOS, and I have a 'droid, I have no personal experience with it.
