2 flights = 2 crashes
Ok today I flew for the second time ever (Hovered) and crashed once again, I drifted off into the brush, Broke tail boom, spindle, fly bar and some links, operator error both times. Today though i felt enclosed because our helicopter flight area at the field is super small. I thought i would be ok because I practiced on G2 FS for atleast 10 hrs a week for 2 months but i guess i was proved wrong. Ill give it another shot if I cant do anything then, Then maybe God didnt want me to fly.

how about you dont drift into the bushes?? lol, its okay my brother drifted into a tree before. dont be afraid to move the sticks. if you can fly on g2 then you can fly the heli. just relax and dont let the heli control you. you control the heli. happy flying. hopefully it wasnt too much in damage!Deadstick: Two of these can be found on a transmitter that has been inproperly charged.

I did something like that back in november.. I was too relax at the contrôls and mis persived the distance with a bush. It riped the blade covering and fell to it's side... Took me a month to mentaly recuperate from that one... Still think about it sometimes, wich isn't good when your flying. Keep practicing... keep those training gears on till you feel you can keep your bird away from hard obstacles. I think they are the best to bring you confidence in your flying..

my 2¢

I am new to this as well so hopefully I can offer some advice that might help. I was told by a veteran heli guy "ALWAYS GIVE THE HELICOPTER SLIGHT INPUTS, THEY MAYBE THE WRONG ONES. BUT THEY ARE SLIGHT AND IT WILL GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF DIRECTION." To just sit and wait for a heli to start going wrong puts you behind from the start. So fly the helicopter, don't just sit and wait for it to start drifting before you start to give it the inputs it needs.

I hope this makes sense to more than just me. Just trying to help.

keep it close
When I learned how to hover, there were some tips that helped me completely learn without training gear, without a simulator, and without breaking anything. Mine is electric and could be flown indoors. If you can find a smooth enough outdoor surface, this may work for gas. I learned how to fly in my living room since it has hardwood floors (14'x14' area but the bigger the better).

1. find a smooth slick surface like a gym floor, or tyle, or lenoleum.
2. make sure skids don't stick. take off rubber gromets if any like on my REX. It can also be done with training gear.
3. barely take it a few inches off the ground and try to keep it in the same spot with the tail towards you. If you begin to drift, turn, or tip and can't get it back, release the throttle completely. heli will slide and won't catch and turn over.
4. Don't depart far from the ground (More than 6 inches) until you can keep it in one spot a few inches above the ground permanently. (For me it took me about 8 hours of flight time to get it perfect, but I never broke the heli until I started stunting it. I first hovered it for 5 seconds, then 30, then a minute, then forever.)
5. Master side-side, forward-back movements.
6. Take it up a little higher - eye level maybe and try other things. You know you can fly it tail in so if you get in trouble get into that position as quick as possible.

My brother hasn't learned how to fly his because he just has to get it up there. He keeps breaking parts.

This method takes patience, but it works without breaking a thing.
