You're not a "pilot" if you fly an RC helicopter. Sorry to crush your dreams #HardTruth

Is an rc car racer not a driver then? Pilot sounds better than player

If you fly something your a pilot. If you fly rc your an rc pilot. Do you fly?

Mr. Miyagi
Are you really a pilot?

I think it’s so funny that people that fly RC toys refer to themselves as "pilots". I think its kinda ridiculous and just felt like throwin that out there for all of you rc aviation experts who have crowned yourselves with the title.
When you fly something,your the pilot.When you drive something,your the driver.What do you think people should be called LOL.

I have spoken to a few full size heli pilots. They say RC helis are harder to fly as you're not flying tail in all the time.

Oh and some of them can't even afford a RC heli on their pay!

Did you say pilot or pirate?

I say grown men that play with toy helicopters are not pilots! We are grown men that play with helicopters.

I tell you what!
I spend over $15k getting a Pilot License, so I'm a pilot.
The first time I try to fly a RC plane I crash it no matter how much my over 600h of loggin time experience I had at the moment.
It took the good friendship and dedication on a bunch of "RC-PILOTS" to get me where I am in the hobby right now. So If you like things that fly, doesn't matter how big or small they are, everytime you are on the controls of the ship you will consider yourself a Pilot.
And to finish, guessing that you are a member of this forum, I SALUT YOU FELLOW "PILOT"

By definition a pilot is one who flies or is qualified to fly an aircraft - which by further definition is a machine or vehicle capable of traveling through the air. Looks like a slam dunk to me.

So, wax on wax off.

You know I found out that my RC heli or plane won't fly on thier own.
When I sit them on the ground and tell them to fly they just sit there! But when I do all my flight checks and turn my radio on and the switch to my aircraft they become a part of me!
With my radio in hand I PILOT these RC TOYS to take to the air and I am in control. So I am the PILOT
just fly

the other thing people forgot to mention and one person noted is this:

moving from flying real helis to RC helis is difficult, the other way round not much so.

How do I know? My instructor use to train RAF heli pilots and they couldn't believe how difficult it was. The only good things about these guys was that they took care of the machine (a good habit they brought over from flying the real thing because, well, your life depends upon it!), but they just couldn't believe just how difficult it was to get started despite so many hours on a full size.

The other issue is of course jealousy. I had a work mate who I never liked and I told him that I flew RC helis, he just replied that he wouldn't call that "flying". Same issue, eh?
