Then you are treated to 60+ minutes of him hovering. I just didn't see the value.
I bought the RealFlight computer simulation software (there's several on the market) which was much more helpful. Comes with the controller to hook to your computer. It also has training built into it. More money but you get to practice a lot more ....at home. I practice while I have the TV on. Results were almost immediate. Plus you save money on all the rotor blades you didn't break in real flight. One of the RC gurus on the internet suggested putting in 30 to 50 hours on a simulator. Well worth the money to be able to practice the basics of tail in, tail out hovering without having to worry about your rc disappearing into the wild blue yonder or piling into the nearest tree.
