Don't give up we all have been there just take your time don't push so hard it will pop one day and you will be a natural
what helps me learning new stuff is I break tricks down and learn sections at a time then put them together

Yes it can be frustrating..kinda love hate relationship.

If it were that easy we would all be flying at 3DM.

Instead of translating straight to the model from the Sim..work out your escape move and ease into it gently try braking the move down into little bits.

Let me get this correct.You can't do hardcore 3D in less than 10 months so you want out?.....Sounds like you are ahead of schedule for most guys.

I've seen this recently and IMO it stems from the simulator. If I can do it on the sim I should be able to do it on the heli.

Guys that have been flying a short time, (less than a year) get discouraged because they can't do piro-flips 2 feet off the deck. Amazing!

drummer5140,

You are being very unrealistic in your goals for flying helis. You have advanced 20 times faster than I have in this hobby. I have been flying for 11 years and still can't do a lot of stuff that I want too.

Give yourself a break and set some realistic goals in each flying session and work on the basics too. I've seen a lot of guys go right into the 3D stuff and forget the basic maneuvers with precision.

Good luck in what ever you decide to do.

Jeff

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

It takes practice, practice, practice.

The main difference between the SIM and real life is you are thinking too hard in real life because of the risk of crashing. The simulator takes all the risk away, so you are more relaxed and can fly almost anything. If you get out of whack on the sim you don't panic, in real life you do. The only way I know of to overcome that is stick time on the real model.

It takes time, I've been at it for 18 years and can't do half of what I wish I could. Then again, I don't spend countless hours flying. (I wish I could)

I've left the hobby twice in those 18 years to only come right back because I missed it soooooo much. Each time I came back I had more realistic goals in mind.

keep going, don't know when you will get it but surely you lost it if you give up now. Five months now and I can barely down figure 8 and lost an expensive bird (1500 dollars. flew away from me), you are far ahead of me

There are a few youngsters that can achieve a respectable level of 3D flying within a year but that is VERY VERY RARE; after a year, most are still struggling with nose in and the older you are, the longer it takes. As has been rightly said, the sim removes all the risk, ain't it amazing what you can do when you're relaxed and not gripped with raw fear I don't understand how you could possibly be feeling discouraged after just a years flying if you are already able to hang onto flips, autos, loops, tic-tocs & inverted hover. WELL DONE, keep up the good work

It's OK I do not have the stones to try half the stuff I do on the simulator. I enjoy flying though because doing AP it nets me an a$$load of money.

Thats the best description of this hobby I have found

I'm in the same ship. Only diference is that I started in may 2005, I'm probably older and I know I'll never will be able to do a chaos.

Some days are just depressing. Lower your goals and go slowly.

My 2007 goals were inverted hover all directions and start backwards flight. I can cut grass inverted tail-in but unable to hold inverted nose in for more than 3 seconds. I swaped the backwards flight for inverted backwards flight which seemed easier at the beginning but now I'm struggling during turns... I almost planted it twice today.

Talk about depression

Tony

PS - I'm not quiting though... I think I will retire from the club a few months and just go to my secret hidden field and practice whenever I get a chance... I get too distracted with alot of people and instead of practicing I start to show off and don't progress

You could always sponsor us that could never afford flyable equipment but learn everything they can on RR and elsewhere then buy into unflyable brands due to budget only to find that despite a well learned understanding of the hobby, simply can't fly because of garbage equipment. One may turn out to be the best teacherand even engineering pioneer yet.

Make sure your agreement is to get you Heli back though. There seems to be alot of as$holes out there too. For me, I saved for 3 years and bought a Venom 3DXL, spent another year saving for a radio cause it wouldn't fly. I have flown a Raptor 60 with a trainer who cut me loose after 1 minute but I just can't afford a good machine but I'm saving. It's going to take a year at least but if there was someone who would do flights even on trainer, I would pay what I could to fly.

So in the mean time I keep buying parts, and my new radio and soon a new brushless and ESC and now possibly a Trex 450 kit and dispite alimony, child support (I'm ok with) 2 motagages my ex's old and new houses, someday I will fly it. I will have that satisfacion, I don't like to lose even when there's no chance of winning.

I do have to say that I've got alot of satisfaction with a cheap co-axial but the Lipos don't last so I'm grounded again until I can buy new ones. What-ever, food optional for now, but I will fly a RC heli.

Guys, consider yourself lucky. Yes, we all have to work for this, be glad your in a place where there is work.

If you can find someone to buddy cord you it will improve your confidence and remove the fear factor that is holding you back.

In the mean time practice on the sim, fly low so that you can see the mountains and fly parallel to the runway. Control the sim model within a set distance and maintain altitude.

Don't rush, hover hover hover ... all positions. All flights begin and end in a hover.
