The instructor had it off at first, until I asked for more of a challenge and more realism! Tried landing on a beach but it kicked up a lot of sand and had to move over to a grassy area!. Hoovering WAS a challenge. {YES, I did crash on occasion!} There are an enormous amount of automated controls in the aircraft!

John they are a handful to fly ( they donít really fly,they just beat the air into submission) a helicopter pilot uses both feet,both hands and wrists,kinda like a real pilot but more complex,my SIL is a Southwest Capitan but wonít try helicopters.

This is so true, I have been trying to fly R/C helicopters, it ain't easy! What gets me is heli pilots do what Pure Texas says and they talk on the radio. People around here cannot even talk on a cell phone and drive.

Jamespal,itís like everything else,it comes second nature,in semis before we had gps,cell phones,I could drive,talk on cb and read a map and monitor everything else on board and stay in my lane,now drivers canít even keep a truck in a straight line,guess thatís why they put lane departure on most all new semis.
Never tried RC Helocopters,did Tyra fixed Wing but not successful on that one either.
