Thing is - I've already got quite decent PC.
BTW, I didn't know the 415M is so sloppy!!!

I found it! Under settings and options and under mail there is a box you have to check to save a copy. I guess it's not checked by default as that will add to the allowed messages. I guess you can test it with a couple of messges and then uncheck it again.

Pretty good. I have actually done some inverted flying on it, but won't try any on the real one yet. I went out to test the 250 with the flymentor, but just had a problem. I think it's way too heavy so I took out the big receiver and put back the 6 channel since I'm not using the other wires. I also took off the sensor since I don't think I'll be using anything other than the balancer if I can get it going. I also took off the nice tail servo, it's just too heavy and put back one of the orange plastic ones. Tonight. I think my links are still too tight which is why it's still going to one side.

I also took my flybarless to test after losening the belt a bit since I had that weird shake before. Unfortunately something weird happened. I was just shaking pretty bad and while I try to hover it decided to lean left right into the ground without any imput. The weird thing is the only things broken are the main gear, one servo, bent link and broken jesus bolt, that's it. I can't figure out what the heck went wrong with it as I took the video of me flying it last time. Just weird. I used the only long screw that hk had for the jesus bolt, and I know I didn't over tighten it. I snug it with thread lock but something just went out. I'll post the video later as I did get it on there, but it's a bit long. It didn't want to upload so I may have to check that later.

Good to hear you got your simulator working! I haven't been simming for quite a long time. Today since you mentioned that you receive your simulator, i thought i'd give mine a try. I noticed i have become very rusty since abandoning the sim for quite a long time. Here's mine:

For 3D flying here are your choices. The lower it goes, the cheaper it is, and it's performance would also be cheap

2. Align GP 750
3. Hobbymate HB790
4. Hobbywing mems G3 gyro

Hey Guys

I'm going to give my 250s a break. I ordered a micro cp helicopter to learn inverted flight, but I wanted to do some practicing before I got it. I finally got my cheap E-sky sim to go into idle-up just a few days ago, and man it's a new ballgame! It's like trying to learn how to fly all over again, the sticks are all backwards. I think I'm going to have to develop two brains; one for normal flight and another for inverted.(that's going to be pretty hard for an old guy) Anyway it should be in the mail today and I hope it's crash resistant because I think I'll be crashing a lot.

Yah I'm hanging in there, and I think I'm getting better, slowly. but surely. I got my micro cp heli today, it flies pretty cool, but I won't do any inverting until I get it down pat on the sim first. Until then it's sim, sim, sim.
