Hello I am new to the hobby with just under 2 gallons under my belt. Today was pretty here and I went to fly with my dad. I buddy boxed my dad for a tank. Then I decided it was about time for me to try a flip and what do you know success. Also did a roll and inverted hover for 5 seconds. I was really happy. I learned sims work because I have only put 2 gallons through my heli. Thanks for reading I am really exited.

Yes they do. Its funny, all the guys I know that say the sim isn't like the real thing can't fly for crap. I do agree a sim isn't totally like the real thing but it does help a lot, especially with learning to work the sticks without thinking. Doing circles and figure 8s on the sim is how I learned to hover and land nose in. Its boring but it works.

Your smart to have done the sim. Two gallons and a inverted hover,
very nice. And you should be excited...well done.
You are way beyond me when I was at two gallons.

same thing happened for me. i was tearing up on the sim but when i flew in real life i was staying tail in for the first 6 flights. My buddy who watched fly on the sim said man why don't you fly like you do on the sim. so i did it. flips inverted flight, backward inverted and so on. the sim is my best investment every. i fly it 1 hour a day. everyday.

worked for me with nose in and backwards flight. Got good on the sim and said what the heck if I don't ever try it why bother. I knew which way to push the sticks without thinking when I did it. I try to get an hour in everyday. Inverted next

I can fly not to bad on the sim, I can do some rolls and loops, and pretty much keep the heli in one piece. But Im having a hard time taking the flying from the sim to the field.. Anyone have any tips?

Just make sure your heli is set up right and relax is only money

It may be called the Pucker Factor

At the field there is no SPACE BAR

Maybe you can have someone that flies well and have them flip and roll your heli, that way you know the heli is able to do it then go for it on your own. Remember Altitude can be your best friend when trying something new.

I had a difficult time going from the sim to real time, until one day i just said to myself "if you aint gonna fly it you might as well go home and turn that heli into a HangarQueen"

Be safe, take your time, soon you won't wanna stop flying............... Then you'll be a HelidAddict like the rest of us.

I never used a sim for the reason above, I think I learned a lot quicker without a sim but that is just me.

Thanks to a good friend I was able to buddy box my first flights including loops and rolls and after one gallon I was on my own. The SIM helped me learn to fly, but the buddy box helped me get over the fear of my first flights.
