I am no quite sure where this "Just fly it!" attitude came from but today was just a blast. No worries just fly and tried new stuff. Maybe orientation has just sunk in, maybe I am seeing the whole heli, who knows but today I was 2x better than I did a month ago.
Did it just click for you guys one day and seem very enjoyable to fly?
Inverted nose in even feels good. Gotta work on my other inverted orientations in a hover but somehow I am no longer scared to try.

Its like most things, Once you try it and have some sucess you build some confidence and everything else seems to get a little easier!

A little easier? This was like flipping a light switch. Now I lean relaxed against the fence enjoying myself.

I was so "comfy" today I crossed my legs while leaning against the fence by habit then instantly uncrosssed them. My brain said "Your not that good!" Lol
Wish my laptop didn't die 3 weeks ago and IRCHA tied up my fun money. I am itching to sim. After a big parts order maybe I can get my laptop repaired in a couple weeks.

I know what you mean. Some days I just feel like I'm on it. Other days, not so much. I have been trying to get more flying and less BSing in during a day at the field. By late in the day I'm feeling pretty confident and start going for the new stuff.

its like something "unlocking" in your brain, after enough practice, and everything seems easier and relaxed...happens to me frequently

It is kind of wierd how it just opens up and your off doing more new stuff in a few weeks than you did in the whole previous year. I believe it is getting very comfortable with all orientations that set me off. Man is it fun!

LOL, I'm in Tbirds camp. When I get that comfy, I get stupid and try things I'm not ready for. Looks pretty good for a few minutes then the ground reaches up and gets me.

good to hear, although i have found it is times when you think you have it cracked,it bites you on the butt LOL, helis have an annoying habit of doing that.

Good for you though, it is a nice feeling when all the groundwork finally pays off and it finally clicks into place.
when i first learnt i spent weeks and months hovering all orientations, and one day i found i could just go out and do it.

Even lately with my large scale model, it has taken me some time learning how it handles hovering it in different angles, allowing it to fly far far away from me, then all of a sudden it clicked into place.
Stick time and loads of it does help build your confidence and also i personally have found having a flying partner helps, as you can push each other on.

Well done, all the best with your future flying.

Matt

All The Best
