l just said l understood it. Every one should use whichever method suits them best. lt will also depend on what stage their flyings at.

Flybars. Who needs `em.

well the sims all use a linear curve on it as well.

so if you can do it on the sim you can do it in reality.

Between learning on phoenix and peer pressure to learn it on my nitros I learned it from 5 foot autos to 300 foot autos over 1 weekend.

Autos arn't hard with larger birds.

After the Military and the way they teach you to do things 1 way. and it makes things alot easier to not have to learn anything 2 times.

Wouldn`t the sim follow whatever you put in your transmitter?

My first auto was on my first nitro and I was forced to do it due to a engine failure. Now I do one at the end of every flight and love it no inverted auto's yet. But i see them in the future.

Not all sims have that feature tosh.. RF with their crappy plastic controller is very limited for that.. only Pheonix does since it uses all the features of the users radio... and its default if you don't set anything custom is indeed linear.

l think Reflex does it and CSM used to. Haven`t tried any other sim. l find sims are crap for autos anyway. Not to sure about now but l know the F3C boys never had linier curves in any mode.

I use a linear curve too (+-12.) It's just how I learned. I can see the argument for both ways. For me, I hate unlearning/relearning stuff. The same arguments can be made about learning to fly in idleup vs normal mode. Sure, it's easier but is it easier in the long run (if you hope to fly inverted?)
l find sims are crap for autos anyway.
I find the same thing. They are way to easy. I find it better just to practice in real life. The sim seem like it teaches me bad habbits.

T-Rex 450 SE V2 , T-Rex 600 NSP, Stryker F27 C....Yea, it's a plank.

Phoenix does them pretty well.
It worked for me to train me.

and I haven't blown a real auto yet =D
and Now I'm shooting autos to a small target from over 300 fet up =D

GOOD sims work.. and RF isn't good for heli physics

Just use collective to manage your descent, I mean you can do it normally so why limit yourself in a auto (also while changing muscle memory).

Exactly tech and SNJ.
thats what I was trying to explain..
learn once learn it right.
You may need that extra - pitch and relearning bad habits is harder than learning from scratch

-6 Degrees here and i Love it. It's just enough to get the bird screaming down if i need to, but also does make it easier to maintain a normal Descent rate and easily enter the flare and then increase pitch for the landing. Sounds like you are on the right track. Auto's freakin rule! I never forget one of my ol' flying buddies Dwayne who first pushed me to do my first auto. It was all "history" as they say after that. I am obsessed with doing them now and they are a part of every flight for me at some point. I think IMHO also that they help you with your precision skills as well. Keep practicing and you will be amazed how natural they will eventually become to you.
Cheers,
Clint
