Having flown the JetRanger in real life, the details in this model are amazing. 

Always Aviate, then Navigate, then Communicate. And never be low on Fuel, Altitude, Airspeed, or Ideas.

Of course if a helicopter, how low can you go !?!

It certainly looks the part!  How does it fly Phrog??  I've yet to find a sim that IMHO replicated the flight control actions of a chopper.  I'd love to find one that was as accurate as most fixed wing modeling is.

Being an old chopper guy I usually fly low and slow.

I only fly in FSX, but this model really has great visual detail. In FSX I'm still getting a feel for the many helos. Biggest problem is flying flying from any cockpit view. Without a good 45 deg wide view, nearly impossible to perceive drift. Getting better with practice. Slowly writing a review of handling characteristics for several FSX helos to upload as a tutorial/new helo flyer article. Just need to figure best video capture (easy is what I need).

I know exactly what you mean.  That's why I use three screens with a slightly to the left view but not overlapping, a straight on view, and a not overlapping slightly to the right right view to give an almost 3D effect when flying FSX.  And that is exactly why I don't like the new sim.  It won't give me that multiple screen views option.
