Yes, the realism is good, the graphics where ok back in their day, but far
behind current technology, But it is a good trainer.

Hi Igor,

I used to have one. What do you want to know?

I've got AeroChopper and wished I had spent a few dollars more and
gotten CSM.  The parameters in AeroChopper are adjustable, it's just
that they don't use common sense terms and real measurements that we use
in setting up our choppers.  For example:  Model weight ranges from a
low of  13 to a high value of 1900.  But what do these numbers
represent, grams, ounces, henways??  All the other parametes are the
same thing, some range of numbers that you input, attempt to hover/fly,
and go back and change over and over.  It's taken me months to get it
set so it reacts similar to my Nexus, but still not very realistic.  I
believe the CSM simulator uses more sensible parametes like rotor
diameter, real weight, engine size, etc.

Hi,
    >Does anybody have an expirience with AeroChopper R/C Flight Simulator?

I've tried most of the simulators out there and Aerochopper is the one i like best ( i'm waiting for the new Real Flight sim to see how the helis behave ) . Unfortunatly , Aerochopper has 2 big downsides : 1) the original heli settings are real ** shit **  2) It's not really worth to try sending via e-mail better settings because the sim behaves differently from one computer to the other :-(((  . But what i like with this sim is the great amount of parameters :-))))))))  It's the heli sim i chose ( and i'm not a complete beginner ;-)

Bye,

Guillaume

I flew the Aerochopper sim for 5 years when I was in the military while
traveling from base to base repairing aircraft.

I could not find another heli pilot anywhere that flew Mode 1 so I constantly
practiced on the sim, in case I had to do it on my own.

When I finally went to the flying field, I was able to hover my little concept
30 on the first day.  After two or three tankfulls of hovering, and getting
used to the real heli, I attempted nose-in hovering, just as I had practiced
constantly on the sim, and I was able to fly nose-in hovering on my first day
of flying (and I had a witness).
I then was able to fly at the Maryland Heli Association's Fun Fly and enjoy
heli flying like everyone else.
Any time spent practicing on almost any sim will greatly help your training, as
long as your sim flying is not treated like a video game.
For me, after I got the hang of flying, I reset the sim to make it very
difficult to fly (changing wind directions, wind gusts, out of trim heli,
whatever).

As for Aerochopper, the reply by Glynn Laborde, is exactly correct., and I
agree with him.

The settings on Aerochopper are too hard and timeconsuming.

Hope this all helps,
