    Has anyone used this software? It seems like it would be good to practice on, but a $15 hobby king USB controller is gonna cost $40 shipping because I'm in New Jersey.

    Curious what any experience you might have had...

    I no longer have a phantom but had two a while back. I do have 2 450's and a 550. I use Heli-X 5 and find it a great tool for practice. I use the transmitter that I use for my copters (Taranis X9D Plus) for the simulator. It is very similar to flying the real thing. Here are a couple of videos I made while using the sim. There is a Version 6 coming out soon.

    wow these look terrific. It's too bad the DJI controller is not compatible with Heli-X. I'm trying to find a USB controller compatible with it...
