Change in time and weather = less stick time = loss of skills
So being the newbie I am, my skills are still lacking and muscle memory not where it needs to be (complicated by age! :p) so I find that as the weather has turned sour, preventing outdoor flight coupled with less daylight, my piloting skills are deteriorating rapidly.

After breaking the tail on my Nano flying it indoors, I am now hesitent to fly it indoors and am relying solely on the sim. That being not as fun as real stick time, I find myslelf only getting on the sim once or twice a week for a few minutes at a time. So now I am quickly losing the few skills and little bit of muscle memory I had achieved.

This hobby continues to exhilirate yet at the same time frustrate me! Just when I feel I am making progress, I take a step backwards and think I just can't get this and I should give it up.

Aye this happens to many folks
Keep using the sim use it 10-15mins a day instead

I suggest real flight 6 sim with the radio controller its the most realistic I have used.
I only fly FPV now my normal LOS skills are probably nearly gone rofl =)

Don't give up. I am struggling with the same thing.

I have only a little over 4 hours on the club trainer with an instructor on a buddy box.

My club flies indoors for $5 per hour during the winter and I am toying with the idea of getting a Vapor to carry me over until spring.

That way I can, perhaps, continue to progress and solo in the spring.

Good luck.
