The Icon will cost an additional $200, and it will crash a lot. :twisted:

And one of the lesson modules will be to fly it into a narrowing blind canyon.

Wowza, this simulator is simply amazing! Buyer beware though, it eats current generation hardware for breakfast at 4K resolution and on Ultra settings.

You can pick up a PC specced to run 4K Ultra mode for ~$2K. Dell has some good deals.

And you'll need a pretty speedy broadband connection if you want the really nice graphics. They're only available in online mode.
