Do you need a simulator?


The best answer is YES! Using a simulator is the BEST way to learn to fly without crashing your model! Am i right or wrong

Unless that's a battery simulator or perhaps a charger simulator you're in the wrong forum. This is the Batteries and Chargers forum .

But I think there is no substitute for the real thing. Just have to start off with an appropriate aircraft then work your way up. Sims are great for bad weather days or rehearsing more advanced flight.

I am finding the sim is a great way to get to know your way around the Radio.
I've been messing with the Phoenix sim for a few weeks and it is all becoming second nature.
I've saved a pile in broken planes I believe.
I only flew a real one once and lost it to wind and trees. (repaired).
I set some wind in the sim and figured out a lot of where I went wrong by using it.
Is it necessary? Probably not. Is it worthwhile? Definitely.
Then again, I was already a flight sim addict too. I am enjoying it.
