Tips going from sim to real life...??
So I spend most of my time flying on the sim I have my heli on the sim 99% identical to how it flys in real life... but when I spool it up I'm suddenly a deer in the headlights. I get very nervous to the point of shaky thumbs, and forget everything I do on the sim lol in real life I find myself being very repetitive and poor collective management etc... no I'm not scared of crashing I crash lots

on the sim I can fly any direction an all orientations, piro flip in one spot for as long as I want etc and in real life... well I SUCK demo below...

You need to work on the basics a little more in real life as opposed to the sim. Just take it easy and do it one step at a time. Little by little. Keep it in front of you and do maneuvers from left to right and vice versa.Part 107.

I guess the "pucker factor" is keeping you from flying your heli the way you can fly in the sim. My advice to you is to spend more time on the real heli. Take it up a little bit high and slowly flying the maneuvers that you already master on the sim. You will find that the your fingers/hands are shaking the first few times you fly the new moves, but the trembling/shaking should go away once you get comfortable with the helicopter orientation throughout the new maneuver.

I spend quite a bit of time learning a new move on the sim. Once I master it on the sim, I then move to the real heli and try to replicate it.

One thing that helps me is to limit distractions. Focus on what you want to accomplish on your flight day and just continue flying that same pattern until you are very comfortable with it. Don't rush your flight.Ray Fernandez - GUAM

get a cheap heli you won't care about and have at it

have faith in yourself and muscle memory, just like riding a bicycle.

Seriously? No offense TBird, but you need to check your personal confidence level. I, along with a million other heli pilots would love to be able to fly like that. I have been trying to do piro flips and inverted funnels for years and just cannot get them down. Stop being so hard on yourself. I don't care what anybody says, that was a good flight and you should be proud.

+1, the flight was beyond my skill level to say the least. There was big air, some low smack, all orientations. The experience shows, and in time like with my skills, things happens eventually. At least you have a field like that to fly at. AMA# 1078375

Just one mans opinion, but try setting your timer, fly a routine with some of the maneuvers your practicing on. You should almost never crash on the sim before the timer goes off if your flying within your capabilities.

Go buy yourself a 130X, then go out and beat the snot out of it.

I can't tell you how many times I've smacked that thing and it keeps flying. That little heli has done more to help me get over the "pucker" factor than anything else. It's like a real life simulator!

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

TRUST
you have to trust yourself. you know what the heli is gonna do and you know were to put the sticks. the sim has trained your movements, now you have to trust you know what you are doing.
you aint crashin you aint learnin

One thing that I found that helps is to fly when you are mad at someone or about something. You end up with a I don't care attitude and end up flying the S#$t out of your heli just like you do on the Simulator. When I finish a flight like that I feel better and I find it easier to fly like that with out being mad. Oh and if you do crash just blame it on what you are already mad about. Rick

I tend to agree with readytofly and thumbBumper both, you are a damn good pilot from what I've seen in that video, and your only problem is confidence. A 130x would be good, but we all know that the bigger the bird the more stable they seem to fly, so I don't really see that as being much help really. Time and real life flying are your best bet.
