There is more than a small amount of difference in the amount of natural ability people have.

Physiologists studying Babe Ruth found he had the greatest eye-hand coordination of anyone they had ever studied. The ability for a signal to get accepted by the eye, into the brain, get figured out, the brain developing a response, brain sending response signal to the appropriate muscles, the response signal getting through the nernous system, and then the muscles acting on that signal, is very dependant on many factors, one of the greatest being the makeup of the system itself - the 'hardware' which is set up by the dna of the individual.

Diet and excercize play a role in developing/maintaining this system and after that it can be maximized with training/practice.

In the hardware dept I would have to say most of us are in the ford fiesta dept as opposed to Babe Ruth's ferrari dept.

I also believe having good eyesight also helps, have you've noticed that most of the top pilots don't wear glasses?

the key i think more often or not is age, younger learn faster, faster reactions combined with lots of hours of flying and the no fear mentallity of younger people lets them progress at a faster rate.

Ok, here's an observation, what do you guys think?

I'm an avid gamer. Have been all my life. I'm also pretty damn good. I was abnormally good at Street Fighter 2 as a teen, and did competitions and such, and I do very well at multiplayer FPS games such as quake, unreal, team fortress 2, counterstrike, etc. I started with Wolfenstein 3D, and grew up with the IBM PC. I'm a network engineer by trade nowadays.

I've started flying helis, and flew with some new guys last week. I flew my shogun up, did some circuits, some nose in, landings, just basic stuff, but these guys seemed to be impressed. These guys fly Synergys and Raptors, and one flies a beautiful Logo 500. A couple said they'd never seen a shogun fly so well. One came up to me and said, "you're a gamer, aren't you?".

Now, I wonder. Do I have this "natural talent" for gaming? Which applies to helis it seems? Or does my heli flying benefit from years of gaming practice?

And now I've completely labeled myself as an egotistical jerk haha.

Hi, I'm Aox, I fly helis and yoyo.

IMO, you have to follow a training method and to get practiced like crazy and something else. Whenever you don't fly outdoor, you have to fly indoor.
Conclusion: You always fly.

You may be right. Kyle didn't start until he was 5 or 6

Simming or flying without focus = very inefficient way to learn

I try not to get on the sim or fly just to "BANG AROUND".

I try to focus on no more than two moves per session.

I also try to break down difficult moves mentally and practice on these individually.

This has helped me.

Quality, not quantity

P.S. I'm WAY past the prodigy age

I cant speak for everyone but i know the g3 sim made a big improvement with my flying.it may not fly as well as the real thing but it gives you a chance to get the feel of a heli hovering nose in,nose in inverted,or whatever you can think of without the butterflies in your stomache or the risk of crashing your expensive heli.
