I've had alot of fun flying so called 3D for me, loops, flips, rolls and once in awhile flying upside down. It is slowly becoming easier, but I'd like to know if flying inverted gets to the point of flying upright and you don't have to think about it much?

I Fly So Good: BECAUSE I'M SPONSORED! ...what's this bill here?

if you practice,practice and practice some more then yes you wont have to think of the stick controls it will become second nature.

I find it harder to hover upright nose in then inverted nose in... I guess because i do inverted more now ...but it is amazing how fast you lose the basics when you don;t do them or don't care to do them

for me, inverted is not harder technically.. but the CG is now totally opposite and requires more fine adjustment than standard hover.

I've been hovering inverted for a month now, and flying for 4.

I think one day it will click and you will say man it is so easy but that will take different times and most of all how much you practice you do . It is real easy to get rusty on the basics when you start do inverted , so don`t forget the basics .

I'm slowly but surely gett'n more & more comfortable fly'n inverted, can remain calm in just about any situation so I figure in a couple months I'll be doi'n slow figure 8's at about 5-10' so the answer would be Yes!

and one more thing "DON'T BE AFRAID!"

Short Answer...

Yes

The more you practice the easier it'll get.

I feel just as comfortable inverted as upright, also you have very smooth air under the rotor disk inverted,you dont get prop wash over the canopy as you do when upright

the heli does not care whether it flies upright or inverted. Same thing should apply to the pilot. It's all about practice. orientation is the key.

Just do it.
