Since July '02
39 gallons of fuel

Mid level 3d, stuck on learning piro loops right now, probably be a while before I crack them due to a strong desire not to crash.

Realflight G2 (saved me from quitting the hobby, could only tail-in hover before I got it, doesn't replace the real thing, but will teach orientation/stick timing which is IMO more than half the battle)

Started on a Rap. 30
Jumped to Freya 91 and will never look back (except at the .50's!)

Redo your math

1 Year = 52 weeks
1/2 Year = 26 weeks
-------------------------------
Total--------78 weeks

89 gallons used in that time period would be.


89/78 = 1.1410256 gallons

I wish I could afford to fly by using your math.

So far:

-About 4 months with Hawk
-On 3rd Gallon of fuel
-Now doing some aerobatics - have nose-in hover, FFF, etc. down.
-My flight simulator is the Ikarus Piccolo. I have had it about 1 year
and I fly it almost nightly. It has really helped on my FF and hovering
at all positions.

2 years - 2 months (this time around )
160 +/- gallons
Artistic Aerobatics (nice one Pete!)
Lots of G2, but now liking the Reflex
IRCHA's Pilot Profencency Program

I have used the sim alot! If you keep a good practice pattern with it, it will help, if you bang sticks, it will hurt!

Advice:

Push your skill level by flying a machine you dont worry to much about crashing! If you are learning to hover on a brand new shiny brand x that you just paid $3,500 for, you most likely hinder you learning curve.

DO THINGS IN ORDER! (like learn to hover before you try a chaos!)

Try to fly with other pilots around you! Friends pushing friends is great way to advance!

Its all about having fun!!
