Thanks very much. I will have a play on Recharge and see if my stick control is getting more accurate. I had a quick try on Velocidrone demo and it was 'flyable' on my laptop but not great. Might be my skills or maybe laptop not fast enough but kept crashing a lot....  :)

OK so it's quite a while since I posted the original question about sims.

I have been practicing on FPVFreerider Recharged lots, trying to do 30mins a day. I have also been flying my Martian3 for about 8 packs a week and I am slowly getting better  :D I have never been a gamer so my finger control had a long way to go and a longer way still to go but I am getting better. I can now fly round my field and not crash.
In fact last week I bought some gates, well some goal post type things from smyths toys. They were 15 and make 2 gates about 5ft wide 2.5ft tall. I can get through the gates some of the times, others I have to throttle over them or have a crash  :D

Anyway I bought Velocidrone today and had a play on the laptop. I think the physics are better than FPV but boy does it take a long time to load!!! I think FPVFreeRider is great to get used to what the sticks do and gives you a good grounding to a complete novice and for me it was well  worth the money and the simplicity of the 'rates' system enabled me to start with very slow controls to work up to the snappy stuff.

I do think Velocidrone is sort of the next level in control. So far I have set my rates same as on my Martian3 and it was very sloppy on centre stick till I realised that the dead bands were quite large. I reduced them down and it's much better.

So now I can practice with Velocidrone ready for when I can get to the field.

Thanks for the advice and support.
