Default Realflight Question

Hello everyone! I have started my new hobby of RC Helicopter's. My family got me a 3 channel coaxial and well i fell in love. I bought a Propel Speedstar and well as we all know. Broke it, now i am waiting on getting parts. So in the mean time I found Realflight and learning on that. Well I am doing pretty good so far, with the crash here and there mainly from doing silly things.

But too my question, how realistic is the flying mechanic in this sim?

Some thing are easier on the sim and some are harder.

No sim recreates the effect of wind quite correctly.
The aircraft on the sim are always 100% straight. Real aircraft are not.
The perspective of how far the model is from you and how to "find the runway" can be odd in a sim. You can adjust the view somewhat to improve this but it will always look different in real life.

Most of the model responses will be very accurate.
