Hey guys figured I thought I should say something here cause I just started flying my raptor 30 last week. I gotta say this is certainly different from my planes but I'm enjoying myself a lot. Before I started with the heli I had tons of time on realfight G2 at the house so I caught on real quick. The sim time has helped a lot I got 15 flights hovering in all the different positions and today I tried some really tight circuits over the runway. They were about 30' x 15' rectangular circuits and about 2' off the deck. I gotta say this is way off what I hear is normal but for me it was a natural step. I figure a couple more tanks doing tight circuits and I may try some real foward flight.
I think I may now be a heli pilot for life now.
Good to hear your first flights went well Chris. I wonder on that first flight if your knees were as shacky as mine. Happy hovering
