Haven't had too much luck going from FP to CP. I made the mistake of buying a 300 size bird as my first CP. Wreck... repair.... wreck .... repair... Bought PHX Sim and yeah like most.... BORING... its not the real thing.... so I heard and read "bigger is better" so I bought a 500 size bird and guess what? Wreck... repair..... fly... begginer style..... wreck again!... repaired.... then I decided I need to stick with the sim... but like others like me.... its BORING... NOT the real thing.... well here comes the HOLY COW part. If you practicing on a simulator... get off your computer screen and hook that laptop or desktop up to your flat screen in your living room. Mines a 55 inch.... and HOLY COW... NOT BORING ANYMORE. Got the surround sound pumpin and I CAN SEE MY HELI.... SWEET... just thought I'd mention that if your bored flying sim on small screen... hook HDMI up to computer on big flat screen and you'll enjoy it MUCH MORE... OK I'm done!

Sounds like you keep crashing no matter the size or helicopter. Sounds like you need to do to things.

1. Find some one to check out your setup. Make sure everything is fine and that the heli will fly in the first place.

2. Get some training gear and learn to hover.

3. Slow down. You are not going to go from learning to hover to inverted flight in a week. So take it easy and relax.

The sim can be rough in the beginning. It will pay! If you can hover tail in, left and right side in and the nose is for 30 seconds with some wind and you have a good mechanical set up you will be able to have a crash free flight.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.

My RR friends I already know this. I'm all about sim now. I appreciate your thoughts in helping me out. I do have a great mentor. I just didn't have him in the VERY beginning. Im merely letting those who ... like me find the sim boring..... how to make it more interesting is all.

Don't feel too bad, I think we all started that way. I had a 450 Align that had maybe 5 minutes of flight time total in a summer and 100 hrs. of repair. LOL.
Believe me, I learned lots on the computer.
Like Rudy said, Just slow down and take your time, It will come. I practiced on the sim with a 600 heli.

Stick with it,
Bill

Another way to avoid boredom on the simulator is to begin working on inverted hover as soon as you get the first grip on upright hover. It is very challenging and will keep it fresh for you while you learn fine control in all orientations. Just a thought. This is what I did.

Yes, we all learned one way or the other.Mine was a Trex 450se.....my daughter told me I can only crash once a month. ..lol. But the big screen is fun with the sim on it but get training gear and learn to hover first. You have to crawl before you can walk.

Wayne I had the training gear on during the flights I mentioned in first post. I'm pretty good now with orientation... NI TI NTL NTR... on the sim. I'm working on inverted hover now. By the time spring rolls around I'm hoping ill be doing figure 8's inverted on the sim. My main point here was to tell the newbies to put the sim on a big screen.

Pretty aggressive goal, Inverted right and left is tough, you have to trick your brain and sticks to do opposite from what they are use to!
Anyway good luck and have fun!

interesting,

i think what the op intended was to tell everyone how ark'n fantastic the simulator is on big screen, too bad we couldn't all have a whole wall for one. That way you mess around on the symlat'r for some time then right after plan for the real thing. I mean like the same day, try a sim trick, five minutes later out the back door with a 30/50 or 550 600 size.

big screan woo wee,

@ icanfly Yes you are absolutely correct in your clarification of my thread. My intentions WERE to inform fellow members.. especially newbies to the hobby that if they find the simulator boring that they can put a litlle more excitement in it if they fly it on a bigger screen than the usual 15 inch laptop screen or 19 inch desktop screen. By the way they make smaller flat screens that don't take up the whole wall in case you were unaware. Oh and the comment big sceen.... woo wee.... damn right

I only FLY on days that end in "Y"
