Anyone here pinball fans? Pinball Arcade is really great. Features actual real tables for your phones or tablets. I just got Attack from Mars and it is great. I also play The Machine, Bride of Pinbot also cool.

Pinball is cool. I just downloaded a heli sim for my iPad. You can fly align, blade and scale stuff. The physics aren't the best, but it is the best heli sim/app I have used yet and it is a lot of fun

Do you have a sim for your desktop/laptop? I highly recommend Phoenix 4. Very accurate for helis. It comes with the blade series of helis and all flight physics are fully adjustable so you can tweak it to be EXACTLY like yours.

Got my nano cp programmed to my 9xr woot. Actually flew around my living room. Flew with about 80 % throttle peaked ... Do you guys use expo on your throttle? below 50% it has a nice curve on 30 expo.... my swash plate movement is 80 percent + and 60 percent minus so it actually help my tendency to slam shut the throttle

I've never heard of anybody using expo on the throttle. Why do that?

Your throttle curve looks OK. If the heli is performing the way you want it to leave it alone. Watching football be back later.

I do have Great Planes Realflight Basic on the laptop, but my wife always seems to be using it when I have the urge to to some sim flying. The desktop is junk, so gotta start saving for a new tower and then invest in a Phoenix sim. They do look nice Flew the mCPx today. Breaking in my new Thunderpower batteries

Sounds like you are making progress. You will get there. Learning to fly helis takes a lot of time and patience. I spent a lot of time on Realflight learning basic hovering and my orientations. Good luck

Try bumping your throttle curve up by 5% 0-30-55-70-85. It should improve stability.

My Fun Cub will be collecting dust until better weather also.

We can always move indoors for cars and small helis.
