Definietly get a simulator! Don't even attempt to fly your helo until you can hold a steady hover tail in, side view and nose in. For your first few flights with your helo, the training gear is a good idea. You can make your own with some dowel and plastic wiffle balls.

Yes, you can do it on your own, I did.

I would definitely get a SIM, it will pay for itself in saved crash costs.

sorry I dont think I would have went that way but I did too. There are good tip in the venom forum here to help you along. I would not attempt to fly without training gear. it can be costly. PS if you need parts I have some you can buy and spare helis if you need to fix yours. and a brushless motor and esc set up. for when you need to upgrade from the weak nimh batts that come with it.

yes u can most definately do it by yourself. i did and i have to say...buy training gear. it will make life much easier for awhile. im even buying training gear for my gasser. i would always buy training gear for a new heli. and a simulator would be a great help too. unfortunately i just got my sim now that ive gone up to a gasser (as soon as i decide on a model)but just one bit of advice, learn what u need to learn on the electric as fast as possible because you will spend way too much money on replacent parts after awhile. i now have spent near 200 bucks on my electric and have had it pretty close to a year. so learn it then go up to gassers. and good luck and happy flying cuz this hobby is fun!
