there is a new simulator available to rival the likes of clearview ect. heli x is free to down load,and has stunning photo backgrounds that are as good as phoenix or reflex.the flight physics are not as good as phoenix or reflex however,but it is free after all.it will work with a usb lead to your transmitter,reflex version 5.04 lead works,and i think the realflight usb lead will work as well.reflex version 5.03 lead will not work.www.heli-x.info/index_e.shtml" target="_blank">Click_here

Hi Si,thanks for your reply,

I think you are bang on,I do things on the sim(Reflex)but I realy have to consentrate hard to get them right so I'm probably trying them too early with the model.I will try to set the sim up closer to my models and practise more.

Thanks for the invite to your club but unfortunately I live aprox 2 and a half or more hours drive from you,with regards to our club www.clevelandheli.co.uk we do have one or two good pilots but we have never to my knowlage used buddy leads as a training method its more a case of just go fly and see what happens.

Anyway I'm off to get the transmitter now.....

smilie
Cheers.

Tim.

I think a lot of people have trouble translating to the model because they just let models crash when they lose it on the puter then when it comes to doing it with the real thing and it goes wrong its like s**t what do I do now.

Whilst I'm on here and before I forget cheers for those sticks you made for me they work a treat smilie many thanks again.

I have downloaded heli x but cannot get it to work. It will almost finish starting up - it will get to the main screen but then it closes itself down again! without giving me a chance to use it!
Any ideas why this might be?

it may be that you downloaded the wrong version,there are two versions.one with java and one without,try down loading the other version and see if that helps.other than that i don't know.
