After managing to do the flips, I attempt to flip the heli halfway and have it stayed inverted. I can do it in the sim, but when I do it in the real life, it is not as easy as it is in the sim, and I end up crashing it with the dumb thumb. What is the key thing that I am missing or that I need to pay attention to?

I crashed last weekend trying the same thing.

My problem, I forgot my "bail out" was full negative. I hit the ground shortly after applying full positive.

I'm back in the air, but, I went out today and wasn't feeling it.

Relax, don't tense up. You need to work on a bail out move in case you need to do so. Start three moves high and when you're comfy with that, then you can lower it. I've seen to many pilots that can flip and roll with ease, but have trouble with upright FF and FFF by sliding the tail across the sky instead of behind the heli. Learn all orientations upright, then move to inverted.

In addition to all the good advice, here's what worked for me, nose in inverted:

Learn to 'twitch' the cyclic in the direction the helicopter is going. Takes a while to hard wire this orientation. Collective also has to be wired for twitch, as you have seen.

To help with that: Visualize your hand holding a stack of 30 saucers, you would have to use a similar approach if you were to try to hold them in one hand.

The stack leans right, your hand has to move right to correct this, or the stack will topple over, and you will need new blades.

Worst case on the sim put the controller over your head and 'balance the saucers'.

It's helped with friends, your mileage may vary.

your set up might be different than sim make sure you have plenty of neg pitch stay 3 crashes high for plenty of room for correction
most people have 0deg pitch at half stick so you have Even travel + or -

Set yer heli up symmetrically and pretend you're flying the sim. Don't try to think about what you are doing, just do it, breathe, and enjoy yourself. The brain has a nasty habbit of getting in the way.

Yug is right, the brain can get in the way if you overthink the maneuver. If you've programmed your brain via many hours on the sim, and your heli is set-up right, hovering inverted should be just as easy as it is on the sim.
