I don't why everyone likes the Phoenix? I have helis ranging from the 4g6 to a 700e and Real Flight is more like the real thing to me.
umm you have a good 4G6 model? Ive yet to find one that works and feels correct. can I get it from you?

oh and yes I agree with you regarding phoenix, when I first tried a sim it was back in 1985 and the helicopter sims were rather poor back then, still helped me but they were bad, recently (5 years ago) I tried them again and still couldnt say oh I like this one or that one, but lets say 2 - 3 years ago is when I really started to notice things as that is when I started to do 3D, I found phoenix was great but realflight felt just that little bit more realistic to me. All of them fly great in "normal flying mode" it's just during the flips and rolls that it feels different somehow...

Just getting some thumb practice here, I usually get stick slippage. I just need to get use to the stirring.

Stupid Guy

I was driving down the road to go to the hospital to see my dad, on the way there is a small park, all of a sudden a 450 is going across the road I brake, I open the window and shout out, "hey you idiot, thats a 450 that could slice someone up and you almost hit my car, your not even in the park, whats wrong with you" he looked briefly laughed and kept flying...

I thought man some people are nuts.....

oh and that park has swings, slides, and generally children's stuff to play with, not a grass area to fly in.

sheesh

I can already see rc helicopters being banned from public areas - as more and more people like that get into the hobby

Here's another example:

car vs 450:

1)EAJ neglects to brake.
2) WHACK!!!!!!!
3) car wins!!
4)EAJ speeds away knowing that pilot will have a hard time explaining how car came to hit heli!
5) EAJ has warm fuzzy feeling of poetic justice, and from imagining it was a trex!!

I have had phoenix for a long time and i love it,,its aimed at heli more than planes ,,,all updates are totally free and its upgraded on a regular basis,,too many adjustments to tell you about

And the vision I was having during that was a semi truck going in front of him something the size of a dual level car carrier type truck blocking his view of the street and another guy going past with a motorbike and instantly an injury.

the same person who would fix it if EAJ hadn't seen the heli until too late and then hit it.

personally,i think he should have called the police and made a complaint.
