    I'm looking for a good 3D flying / combat game for OSX please.

    I used to go hang-gliding at Dartmoor in the UK. Now my pilot's licence is expired and I live in London, so am looking for other ways to get my soaring kicks.

    I grew up playing Elite on my old Acorn Electron (with 32 kilobytes of memory!) and I loved the 3D space combats.

    Later on, I played Descent on the university network but it didn't have the same floaty feel.

    Shooters like Doom or Quake, while fun, are all too earthbound for me.

    Bugdom was a game that came with a friend's new iBook where you played a bug against the evil ants. I spent ages crusing around the flying dragonfly level, not bothering with the gamestory.

    Another game that had that 'floaty' feel I'm looking for was the arcade game Propcycle where you pedalled around on a balloon/hanglider/bicyle thing, and did various swoopy/ soaring stuff, bursting ballons and banking around clouds.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe one of the StarWars games? I've not played many of them.

    Many thanks
