If you have learnt how to fly an electric RC helicopter, then flying a gas RC helicopter should come a little bit easier to you, considering that you’ve gained the reactions needed and developed the necessary hand-eye co-ordination.
It is essential to realize that gas powered RC helicopters need a much greater level of concentration. Seeking the help and guidance of a suitable, well-experienced coach is always a good idea when trying out a gas rc helicopter; one on one instruction is the best way of learning to fly your RC heli.
A radio control helicopter flight simulator such as RealFlight, Phoenix, Clearview, etc. is highly recommended particularly if you can’t get a mentor or a well-experienced rc heli pilot to teach you.
A computer-based flight simulator is a great training aid and important for learning to fly a complex collective pitch helicopter and gas rc helicopters from scratch. Flying a gas helicopter will give you a huge sense of accomplishment and you will have a great deal of fun!
