    Nice is not a very useful term – 100s of nices instead of useful info. And no shot of the cyclic – nice.

  • @clopez3901:

    I learned in GTA V. Have not crashed one yet. Have not flown one either.

  • @nickeadon6108:

    Really well explained, thank you. I can now apply to be the new James Bond and feel confident to rescue that damsel in distress. I now just need to see if there is a youtube video on operating a submarine, learn how to scuba dive and also how to skydive. Oh yes maybe a karate lesson too. Piece of cake. ?

  • @KenFullman:

    So there's no throttle control? Is the engine speed maintained by some kind of computer based on the positions of your controls?

  • @llf8404:

    Clear and simple explanation. Pretty sure there's more to the skill, still feel confident I could look for a place to land the aircraft if needed.

  • @milsgarage:
