Guys, I am sure many of you already know this but if you don't, please try this right now. This really works!

When nose-in hover, move the stick to the direction the helicopter is moving!

That's it!

You will love it, let me know how it went after you try this!

I'll add that you should be a few mistakes high in case you have a brain freeze

Nose in hovering affects; rudder and roll. It is called control reversal. A left command now becomes a right command. Solution to this problem is simple. Turn your head 90 degrees' to the your left. This places orientation back to flying the nose from behind the air-frame. Once you become comfortable doing this, than you slowing in stages, move your head back to the center position. This method was taught to me while learning how to fly fixed wing.

I learned to fly without any of these "tricks" etc. That trick may be fine for nose in, but what about nose in inverted? What about tail in inverted.... too many tricks to remember.

I suggest just flying a lot on the sim. It will start to feel natural. No need to remember all this stuff. I particularly dislike the turning your head movements. Totally unnecessary. Do you see the top pilots doing it?

Use the same body movements of the best pilots. Use the sim more than anything. Keep using the sim to refresh. practice all 8 orientations, keep your skill current. Don't fly if you are not current.

I agree. I also give the rudder trim a few clicks so I also get practice controlling the tail. It all becomes second nature with practice.
