Here we go again. Personally like Phoenix. Others will dissagree. If you don't have much "real" stick time, and/or new you will not notice the difference yet. You can adjust the settings on the sim to match your model. The Rex on Phoenix did NOT fly like mine, but others say it is spot on. It all depends on how you model is build.

Sims are great for learning muscle memory - but nothing will compare to the first time you fire it up and you don't have a reset button. Best of luck on your path

Phoenix

I have to agree with Hellisiege...Sims are great for muscle memory and learning the stick inputs...

while the sim can be modified to match the "FEEL" of your specific heli as ttsingram mentioned ...the real world stress of flying is a factor that the sim cannot prepare you for.

I would consider myself to be a pretty good pilot overall...but I am a LOT better at 3d on the sim

of course having the BALLS to actually do the stuff you do on the sim is difficult....

I think logging in LOTS of sim time is something you cannot put value on as it's absolutely the best way to learn new stuff....the great thing about phoenix is that you can play online and you can also share and record videos from the sim...so you can see what the specific stick inputs are for moves...

I recently made a bunch of Vids for a couple buddies...just to show them the stick inputs...

Sim don't have the "punker factor". You don't have to worry about crashing on the sim and have to worry about the cost of fixing your bird.

Sims are a great tool though. I just got the new Phoenix today and can't wait to get home to hook it up.

Pheonix sim compared to real flying
Much, much cheaper.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
