Schluter scout
Hello everyone, Just bought a old Schluter Scout in very nice condition. This is the first of anything I bought that is RC controlled. I have a nephew who is very good at 3D flying and he will help me out here. I do have a question for you guys. I would like to buy a manual for this machine and I would like your ideas if you may on a good choice for a simulater. I would like to think I can have a little fun with this scout without crashing it. I understand that parts are rare.
Thanks everyone!!

Good luck on the manual. That machine dates back from 1986-1990. You crash it, and it's good as trash. You bought it from a good salesman.

I am new too, in a similar situation with a Shuttle ZXX from the early 90's. Afraid to trash it on my first go, I bought Reflex XTR to practice with. I highly recommend it! I fly the sim almost daily, and have progressed quite a bit in a few weeks.

I read all the posts I could find, and decided XTR was the best heli sim for me. I have also tried G3 in a couple of local shops, and I would say it is an equal to XTR in its ability to teach RC helicopter control. I'm sure there are differences, but to a beginner they seem close enough.

Do you have a transmitter? If yes, check to see if it will work with XTR. Some of the older ones do not. If no, you might consider G3, because it comes with a controller.

Especially since you are new to RC, I highly suggest the simulator. You can use it to learn airplanes too

Good luck, have fun!

I offered the owner $100. I thought I could not go wrong on this. at least I can just hang it up in my shop for a conversation piece. I would still like to start it and see it fly once

That's probably a realistic ambition.
Go G3! It has the edge on Reflex,as it has the controller
(a futaba radio without the electronics inside) plugs into a USB port. see the "sim" forum for discussions on the importance of good video cards. maybe, after a few weeks sim -training,you'll get MORE than one flight!
