If the control inputs are correct it will teach you the basics, but a sim that low quality has poor physics and is less realistic than sims like phoenix and realflight

I JUST sold my Erevo 1/16 on monday, to get my 51 slick.
I have two nitro boats and a custom build snowmobile.

Only car I've had (besides the pile of Toys-R-Us fare) is an XTM Rage. Little 4WD 1/18th truck that I bought on a whim at the hobby shop.

It's actually great fun when it's working. Stock power train is happy to run a 3S lipo and it's surprisingly fast on its little brushed 380 motor. It'll do a backflip if you nose it up against a curb and floor it The problem is that I always end up running it into things and then stuff breaks because it's not really indestructible like a nicer car would be. The parts I need are available online, but that's like twenty bucks I could put toward planes.
