Default New to Helis

I've been toying around with micros for a while now. They are fun, but I need more. I bought an Exceed G2 R2 6 channel (before I read around that a 4 channel would be better for me) and frankly its hard, but still fun. Was wondreing if anyone had any good resources on helis in general.

Also, what is a good 6 channel SIM controller? I downloaded FMS and it works, but its only on the keyboard and that is kind of pointless. Just looking for a recommendation for a good controller.

Also, the documentation that came with my heli is nearly useless. It makes no real mention to what half the buttons/switches do on the controller and was hoping for some links to better documentation for my radio controller. This is the radio that came with the heli: http://www.xheli.com/exceedrc-24ghz-...-lcd-2602.html and this is my heli http://www.xheli.com/dr39elrcrare.html.

Any info or guides would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you want a really good fly sim. I would recommand you buy it from a local hobby store.

I ended up getting the RealFlight G5.5 sim. Loving it so far. Its exactly what I was looking for. I'm probably going to end up returning my Exceed and getting a different heli in a few months maybe. Getting the heli in the air isn't too tough, but getting the coordination down for when the nose isn't facing away from you I need to practice. I've gotten down not crashing it, but still at times I get backwards and bam, right in the ground. I get a couple hours of sim time in mostly focusing on getting the direction controls better.

I also did go to a hobby shop. I don't live close to one (but will soon, moving soon) but decided to make the trip over there. It was well worth the trip. Lots of knowledgable guys over there.

Thanks again.
