You should fly the helicopter and not let it fly itself around...
umdpru gives the reason why I fly my heli in HH mode and try to "coordinate" the turns by feeding in some yaw

Tach.

It is amazing what right thumb, left thumb coordination can do for your flying.

The only problem with that line of thinking is that's not how a real heli performs..

and not all of us even give 2 poops about 3d at all.. I care less about making my heli fly like a UFO on crack.

So rate (normal) mode is a better choice for scale flyers.

Wrong.

We are not talking about any 3D. Real helicopter pilots USE the YAW controls. In fact, they don't even have gyros to help them. They are constantly on the 'rudder' pedals adjusting for torque from the main rotor and any control in puts as well as influences such as wind.

They don't rely on the tail to follow the helicopter around and neither should you. They are flying the helicopter using every control at their disposal.

that's the bottom line here. In the end, it really doesn't matter how you fly your birds. I was just giving some advice that will help anyone fly them better...

The only problem with this is in a real heli the tail does FOLLOW the airframe.
With a good gyro its rock solid behind the aircraft making you fly the tail just to follow the aircraft naturally
In reality (and yes I have flown in and have a few hours on the SH-60 Sim at NAS Mayport.) you dont have to do that you bank it like a plank and just stop the tail from overly drifting and its really not as hard as you make it sound.
real heli is actually easier than RC for basic flight.

Banking and yanking is for model planks. Go take some dual instruction in a helo or fixed wing and you will change the statement you just made.
