Phoenix simulator demo video 1

I’m working on how to capture my simulator motions with voice and the stick movement enabled.  For this test I am using Phoenix 2.0n.  Once I get this setup working the way I want I will start recording short videos for the Training guide.  The first video will be “upright hovering level 1″

It turns out that talking and flying at the same time while being recorded wasn’t as easy as I thought.  And in order to get everything smooth I am flying in a small window on my screen.  But I will adjust in time.

RC Heli Flight school v1.1

Flight school v1.1:  This is a beginner to advanced remote control helicopter training guide for using a simulator. It used to be hard to learn to fly RC Heli’s. But now with computers and great simulators it is much easier. Watch the training videos in the flight school to get tips on how to learn and improve your skills.

This is not intended to be the only way to learn and progress flying a remote control helicopter it is only a suggested method to improve and develop more advanced skills.  When I started flying I couldn’t find any documented method to practice.

Make sure you practice each step and are very confident doing these moves before trying them at the field.  It is assumed that the pilot can hover tail in before starting these exercises.   Good luck and most of all I hope you have fun with your improved flying or at the very least that this makes the sim more interesting.

This guide includes sections called stretch and bonus moves.  These are items out of your current skill level to try but keep in mind you should prefect  them later.  So moves you are just trying as a bonus or stretch level should not be attempted at the field just yet.
