Congratulations!

Wait 'till you try the piro flips

Seriously though, it is a milestone in your flying abilities. Just keep burning the fuel (petrol) and keep on practicing.

Thanks for the encouragement!!

Janek, that is a killer exercise you have given me there to try - I am very psyched

I'm definitely going to try it - thanks for the advice.

Soft landings,
Johann

way to go Dude,,,

the thing about nose-in is after some time on the sim, and then after that first tank of nose-in on the heli you got it licked (is "licked" the right word)...

Congradulation Rawlie! Keep burning that fuel!

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Rawlie,
Keep at it bud! Like Ray said there are milestone's in this hobby and we are ALL going thru the SAME ones. Just some of are further up the highway than others.

I have an exercise for you....

Once you get comfortable holding a nose-in hover practice moving the heli around the field with the nose still pointed at you. Then, try it with the heli holding the SAME yaw position. IOW, if it's nose-in in front of you try flying it to the left but DON't move the rudder. Let it keep going till you have a side-on view. This is a beginning to sideways flight and makes learning funnels easier. Which BTW I STILL suck at....
