Was out doing my thing and had a guy approach asking all sorts of good questions about gyros and stuff. Not the normal how high, how fast stuff.

I went and flew, then he had more questions. His last question was "Are you a gamer?" in which I replied "Yes". He said he was not surprised from how I flew. I just found it to be a very interesting question. Had not heard that one yet.

Makes me wonder how many other RC's are gamers and what are their flying styles?

Thanks,
Chris

Mostly FP shooters. Speeds up your heli reaction time.

I play mostly FP shooters also. I would say that is does help a lot with flying RC helis and other aircraft.

I used to play alot of Dig Dug back in the day. I feel that is what makes me so good today at finding all my misc. parts at the end of each flight.

Ive been told before that I flew well because of my "generation" being a high tech "gamer" era, Ive never been into gaming, Ive got a Wii but never play it, not for me, I use it for netflix and thats about it. Alot of us younger guys dont have any skills that most of the older pilots wouldnt of had. I think its an excuse

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

@GREYEAGLE

He just asked out of the blue if I was a gamer. I have never had anyone at a RC field ask me that. I told him I was a gamer.

I think he has realized most of the people my age and below my age might be gamers and he associates this with a capability of flying.

I thought is was funny.

Thanks,
Chris

I have been playing first person shooters since DOOM came out. I still play the Battlefield, and COD games. My flying is pretty good as I fly a lot of maneuvers, but I am not a low to the ground smack down yet. I did pick up on flying very quickly including inverted flying within months.
