I noticed that there is a sim pilot here that can really tear it up! I mean he is a 3D smack down hard core pilot! Can anyopne tell me why he cannot fly like like that in real life? This cat posts out of focus videos of him SAYing he is nose in and stuff but then when the camera goes back into focus he's tail in again! I think his constant posting of his tail in videos have ran its course after 3 years of it.

1) huge difference between reality and virtual reality
2) 3d scope of looking at a video screen compared to a realistic environment.
3) More time spent on sim than actual time flying real models
4) equal librium issue (shooting in dark with this one)
5) cost factor for repair from trial and error (can't afford the real hobby)
6) doesn't gave good eye sight

Just a few.

The sim heli that he is probably used to has certain piro, cylcic and collective speeds that he is used to. His real life heli is going to be slightly different, thus doesn't do exactly what he is used to a heli doing as far as speed, timing etc...the financial investment of recalibrating his brain to his real life heli is too much for him to really "let lose" I bet. This is the issue I have with my heli. I can throw some on the deck smack down on the sim. I will go no where near the ground with my real heli. It just costs too much if I screw up. I do try to not moon myself with tail rotor blades in real life though.

High Voltage just works better

i started playing with the rudder expo on the sim and my tail came to life.

them some opened the door to better understand expo and duel rates.

once i found a good expo on the sim i transferred the same expo feeling to my real heli.

now im just searching the sim for the cyclic duel rate

Watch at YouTube

expos

Watch at YouTube

so far my real life expo feeling that i have set my helis to is actually tuned and tunable to the sim feeling i like.

im dieing to find the duel rate setting for the sim.

i got 9 lipos charged for 2 helis rdy to go i missed the field this weekend due to prpoblems but ill be at the field by wed fly to packs and if i can get the feeling after 2 packs in want to sim my heli like some of the myths ive heard from sim to 2 packs and 3d myth

I spent about 5 months on the sim while
I was working up to choosing a model, and then building it,
and then setting it up.
Started on the sim again and I enjoy the hell out of the sim for sure.
Real long way from sim to model and did some crazy stuff with my old, long gone Sceadu.
No inverted but some real high aerial shots where I
could almost not see the orientation of the heli. And in hindsight,
the sim is somewhat good, but in real flying when your model blows up in front of you, like my Sceadu did, it's not at all like the sim.
So maybe some guys can do crazy stuff on a sim, but reality crashes suck pretty bad, and they incur, like what Gyronut wrote, emotional debt.

I don't fly my heli's at the field anywhere near like I do on the sim. There is a big difference between reaching for the reset button and reaching for the credit card.

One thing that I see in these Sim videos that you should never do while practicing on the Sim to prepare your self for the real world. Is fly with auto zoom. A nether big thing is that it's really hard to learn collective management on the Sims. Unless you fine tone the helis on the Sim. It's almost impossible to lode the head, Or have tail blow outs on the Sims. Now a lot of people are still flying with a 401 or eqv. on there 600 sizes. It might not happen to some of you but I can and have had my tail blow out(not holed) in flight with a 401. The different travel speed of your servos compared to that of the Sim. Is going to be hodge if what you have are standard and not high speed servos on your real heli.

Helismash sums it up !!!

"There is a big difference between reaching for the reset button and reaching for the credit card".

If I had deep pockets and not have to worry about crashes then I wouldn't bother with the sim frankly.

I think downtime if you crash is a factor too. I waited over three weeks for Blade CP parts one time.

I'm a lot more fearless on the sim. Doesn't cost me a penny when I get disoriented and crash. Isn't the virtual world great?

Their is no pucker factor on the sim, and no worry of spending money when you crash. Still, nothing is more fun than the real thing.

If a person has spent 2 1/2 years on the sim and can fly smack-down 3D,,but can only fly tail-in hovering on a real heli,,that person has a huge problem. I would suspect fear is the culprit,,,which is good. These helis demand a lot of respect, they can cause severe injuries or even death. I'd tell the guy that can't fly an actual heli to call himself a 'Sim-Pilot' and leave it at that. Stick the helis on a display shelf where they belong! If 2 1/2 years doesn't get him flying,,,another 5 years won't matter!
