Be sure that the best way to learn to fly RC is with a teacher or mentor but obviously that doesn't suit everyone. So if you want to do it yourself then here is a selection of flight simulators that will save you an awful lot of money and help build that all important muscle memory. It can sometimes be a bit tricky to get transmitters to work with your computer but you can find the information you need on the forums.

If you go down this route, I would suggest putting quite a few hours in on the simulator before even attempting the real thing. It would be a shame to go to the trouble of getting a simulator and then still crash on your first flight because you were impatient to have a go. If you have put the time in you will be surprised at the power of muscle memory; remember how difficult it was to learn to drive your car or ride a bike, well think how easy those activities are now- that's muscle memory!
