Flight sim /2nd plane indoor 3d flyer

hey guys,

I just got Pheonix flight Sim yesterday, came with the DX5e, I also bought a 3d indoor flyer to practice in my enclosed backyard, i figured i could learn the basics and the ropes on the sim and then practice real time with the indoor flyer. I've put almost 4 hours into the flight sim and I'm getting pretty comfortable on there with multiple planes/indoor flyers/jets. Still getting into situations where my brain feezes up and i crash in the sim but that's because I'm pushing my abilities.

How well do the skills transfer to real life RC? also the landings seem easy with the sim, are they about the same in RL?
My son got me into RC planes, I thank him for that every day

Re: Flight sim /2nd plane indoor 3d flyer

I have Phoenix Sim as well. After countless hours on it, and realtime flights on both helis and planes, I started changing the weather and edited settings on my favorite models. It seems that the sim is set up easier for starting out. I made the models less stable, more fragile and added some wind. Less stable means more control without the model self correcting. More fragile means if landing too heavy it'll crash. The landing gear usually breaks. And wind just makes it more real. Play around with the settings. The sim is a great way to experiment. Have fun!
