New Flight Trainer HeliMaster by Reality Craft

Earlier today, my psotman delivered a Reality Craft Helimaster, a flight simulator from the UK. The cost was not great - the program with a mock transmitter came in at about 20 pounds. Unhappily, shipping was almost the same - but fast.

This seems to be an excellent and inexpensive simulator. There is a further one for airplanes if you wish. The Helimaster has eight different heli models and only three different locations - a field, office and gym. You can change the physics of each model and that tends to be a necessity. Out of the box, my little Hiriobo Lima spun like a top until I adjusted the physics and calibrated the PPM transmitter. After those issues were done, all was just fine.

Now, spending $200 on a simulator was too much for my budget, and while the free FMI was interesting, I liked the features of this simulator. If I want to fly a plane, I can always crank out the demos. For helis, I needed one that I could use over and over and for a price I could afford. (Afford - paying a price that left me room to buy a heli as well!!!).

Another alternative was the markdown price of tethered Hiboro helis at the American distributor. At $39 these seemed a possible alternative, but they were sold out yesterday, along with a cheap one on eBay. Drat.

Seems to be much like this one from Century that is sold by a number of hooby shops in Canada.

If your looking for one of the top sims at a "SUPER" price send me a PM and I will give you a link where to get it.
I don't want to post it because I know how a lot of people get their panties all ruffled up when it comes to copy right protection.
