I know it`s not directly TRex related but...When I turn left it looks like a shot from the military channel but when I make a right it looks like a monkey with epelepsy is at the sticks. Still new to this hobby and was wondering if anyone else has/had this problem. How did you overcome it?
P.S. I know,I know... Practice.

How did THAT get in there?

I'm finding that I'm more adept to one side vs another as well. I'm also left handed.

Nose right I was really steady but my nose left needed work. Yesterday I ran through 5 tanks hovering nose left. Wadda ya know, I turn to my good side, nose right and it seems as though I forgot how to do it. That monkey has a brother!

Seems that paracice... preactice... practice... is the name of the sport

I figured living in a state where there are no left turns I`d be better at rights.Just ran through another three batteries this morning. I just ordered the reflex sim so I can work on that monkey without wrecking my bird.Seems like everytime I get her setup just right, thats when I wreck and have to start all over.
dgshaffer : Thanks for letting me know I`m not the only one and by the way, the weather is perfect for flying right now

That sucks. One of my favorite things about working overnights. Have every morning to fly.

I do the same thing. Can do very nice left turns, but going right is not usually a good thing. Right turns look like, and usually are, more of a desparation manuever.
In my case I think it has a lot to do with just not liking or being comfortable with moving the rudder stick in that direction. Just don't have as much control as moving it left. Practice, practice, practice...

I actually had to put orange tracking tape on the far skid to help me see whether I was pitching away or towards me. It actually helped a great deal.

Maybe a question for another thread but I was wondering what everyone focused on to help them understand what the heli was doing.

Right now I focus on the ground as my heli heads straight for it.

I have a similar problem, but not quite left or right. I have done so many nose in hovers on the sim that it's all I can do now LOL!. I can hover nose in and land nose in better than tail in. No I have to practice my tail in hovers.

dgshaffer, That tracking tape on the far skid sounds like a great idea. I`m gonna give it a try in the morning after work.

How did THAT get in there?

For the ground work stuff it helped me. Once you get up there it'll probably be useless. But hopefully by them I'll be much better at the sticks. HOPEFULLY!!!!

You know it's funny, I was visiting a friend in philadelphia and brought the heli and all my turning problems went away :-) Over time you will get better at both,just make sure to practice as many orientations as possible, as often as possible :-) sounds easy right? Good Luck!
