Why is it that i can fly all other directions, inverted and all but i have a real problem with backwards upright flight, i just can't seem to get the nerv to do it, i can fly backwards fine on the sim. I must be some sort of mental block. Anyone else have this problem. Any tips ? Anyway im going out to try it again today and with luck........

could be that your brain is just not used to seeing to heli at a particular attitude. ease into it. softly softly is the approach. you'll get. then crash it. then do it again, and beat the piss out of it

if you can, try to skip the bit 'bout the crash

Gary...

Try hovering backwards, this will get your feet wet with the real heli. If you hover backwards for a few tanks...you will definitely get comfortable.

Well I tried but never got into it, was not realy in the mood when i got to the feild. Im not going to stop working on this one. I know it will open up a lot the flight envelope for me once i get it down. Its real holding me back at the moment. Im not going to give up i know i can do it!

Dont stop trying just do it......ive only got about 20 flights on the real heli but ive done backwards and forward flight rightside up and inverted already, its all in your mind......if you can do it on the sim you can do it with the real thing, just start out slow, but do it, you wont be sorry. But again only if you can do on the sim without crashing.

Its just like flyin the sim......

Thanks for that stop4357,

Yes its all in the mind, i have made some progress, its been made by simply going back to the basics. i when out for a flight late last saturday, took it up but it was getting too dark for any forward flight so decide to do some hovering, not somthing that i do very offten. Anyway started with some nose in hovering and just took it away from me slowly. Back and then sideways passed me, thats the hard part for me going passed me. Few few more attemts like that and i got used to it. I only wish now i could have taken it up for full backwards fight that night, as im sure i could have done it.

Well there is always next time

If you,ve ever seen ShuttleSmasher fly, going backwards is the least of his worries.!!

Best thing that could happen to a CSM gyro, It falls off into the blades during inverted flight.
