Well I finally did it. Went out behind the firehouse and flew in the parking lot. It was great...weird thing though, I can turn left without any trouble at all but I get all confused when trying to make a right turn in FFF....... But it was awsome,the wind is blowing about 10 mph and still had no trouble.

My right banking turns have always been smoother than my left ones. Havent ever really figured out why.

i also have an easier time when looking at the left side of the helicopter.
I read in one book that the fact that the disk tilts slightly to the right during hover is the reason why it is easier to deal with one side over the other. apparently we visually see the disk off a little when looking at one side and try to compensate for it.

Don't know if i believe it but it is a possibility,

I think it has something to do with whether you are left or right handed. Being left handed in the beginning I felt more comfortable viewing the Heli from the right side. Took some practice to break this habit. Flying slow figure eights in front of you will help in this respect. It also gets you used to seeing the Heli approach you nose in. A few packs of this and nose in hovering will be a bit easier
