FMS Flight Model Simulator.
twenty bucks with a USB controller at most retail heli places, the Proggie is FREE on the Inner-Net.

People will say it's not the best.

A sim just teaches you the eye/hand coordination for the most part, and paying more only makes for a prettier experience, IMHO.

HeliSimRC is a much better sim... it's free too.

A good sim, like Real Flight or Phoenix, will save you a great deal of money. They have very good physics and sim models that may be more difficult to fly than real RC helis. Most serious 3D pilots learn their moves with these sims. But, you are not at a point where you would need to consider buying one. It's certainly something to consider for the future.

Helisim IS better, prettier, and the crashes sound better.
Less "Hackery" to install- FMS can be called Fits Making Syndrome with some OS installs.
