Hi.
I've been flying sims since 1998, mostly jets. My fav at that time was F/A-18 Korea. I've also been trying few heli sims of that time and while it was all good fun I always felt (even as a kid) that they lacked the level of realism (in terms of flight model) that fixed wing airplanes had. So I've been flying a lot of Open Falcon and later BMS but got tired of the complex avionics. That's also why I didn't enjoy BS much. So I switched to civilian sims and I choose X-plane 10 for its excellent flight model. And that's when I got really hooked to helicopters and learned to fly them properly. Practicing hover in awesome Dreamfoil R22 was pain in the ass at first but it was really helpful as I had (with much surprise) no real problems with transition to UH-1.
But the main problem with x-plane was lack of real missions and of course lack of proper damage model.
So, I landed here. Been flying DCS Huey for about two weeks and I enjoy it so much that I think it's time to join some group.

Oh, and I'm 26 and from Poland but I work at odd shifts so can jump in at different hours.

Cheers!
