What’s up guys?! It’s a brand new year, happy new year! How is the RC flying world treating you this week? Contact me if you have any questions or comment below. This week’s post is on Flight Simulators, enjoy!
Flight simulators can save a lot of hassle. They are the closest thing to flying RC aircraft virtually. They come with computer software and a transmitter to plug in. You can spend hours upon hours just practicing over and over again. You can even crash straight into the ground an endless amount of times, it’s great!
If you have a flight simulator, you can practice as much as you want. It’s also very convenient to have on rainy days so you can still fly inside on your computer. The simulators are basically the same as flying the real thing, except no consequences. They are perfect for beginners trying to learn the hobby.
Flight simulators allow people to master an aircraft before flying the real thing. Once they’ve mastered it, they can go outside and try it out for real. It will act the same way as on the simulator, and it’s so much easier to learn that way. When you try out a new aircraft, you take the risk of crashing because you don’t know how fast, responsive, or slow it fly’s. You don’t need to do this for every aircraft, but trying it out on a simulator helps.
It’s up to you if you want a flight simulator or not. They generally go for about $125, which could pay for itself in potential crashes. I know of a guy who spent almost $600 repairing a single helicopter over and over again. So his friend told him to get a flight simulator and practice, practice, practice. So he did, and then finally got the skill down. Now he is an expert at flying RC aircraft. Check out this flight simulator on Amazon.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the blog today! Be sure to check out next week’s article. and always remember, “Altitude is your friend, fly high, and keep ahead of your aircraft.” Goodbye for now!
