When I started flight school, we were going through terms of the helicopter. I said "elevator" makes the helicopter go forward and backward, "aileron" makes the helicopter go sideways, and "rudder" makes the helicopter turn.

My instructor said "there is no elevator, aileron, or rudder on a helicopter". That is when I knew all the terms RC heli pilots were wrong.

I found flying RC helis has helped my flying in a full size helicopter.

The FAA's own reports show that AUV pilots did better if they had no prior full scale training. Oops.
So true.
