Blade disc and boom are the parts that I look at while inverted.

Only then "Grasshopper" will you be one with the inverted heli.
lol

Hovering inverted isnt much different from normal hovering when you first get the hang of it. Practise inverted hovering on the sim and then try it out on your heli with enough height to recover



What comes around goes around.

I feal it's easyer to roll the heli to the side and look to the boom and skids.

But everyone should practice in the sim and find what work's best!

Keep it up...literally

For me the biggest problem inverted, is the tail. The roll is the same weather you are inverted or not. When it comes to the fore-aft cyclic, try to imagine the cyblic-stick as an extension of the main-mast. When you push the stick forward, you push the mast against the nose, that too will be the same weather you are inverted or not. And if you can imagine that pushing the colletive-stick foward means the fuse against the rotordisc, you're done!

I just do a half roll to inverted flight. That way your prospective on the helicopter is the same as upright.

If you have ever flown a model aircraft, like me, then tail-in is by far the easiest. Some that have only flown helicopters find that nose-in is easier. I agree that a simulator is the best way to learn inverted – don’t try it for real until you can do it on the sim.

Tail in upright and nose in while inverted is generally easier for most.

i find tail in or side on inverted easyer than nose in

as for getting there it dont really mater for me roll into it from tail in hover or backward flip from nose in hover.

its probly easyest to roll in from a tail in hover thinking about it.

I found nose-in easier but that's because i practised that the most at first and found it easy to hold it at the top of a loop, then when your nerves go you continue the loop into normal flight. Also, when hovering in front of you inverted nose-in, if you panic you push the cyclic stick away and the heli goes that direction.

I maintain orientation by looking at the skids.

I practise all orientations equally now and that will help when you move on to doing inverted circuits forwards and backwards. Like dragonlord said it's also good to practise different entry methods to inverted also. I like to hover nose-in normal and half roll to inverted. My latest is hover inverted nose-in and piro-flip to normal nose-in (atleast that's what i think i'm doing!!!).

Good luck with whichever way you go at it though...

Bjarte very good.These are the things that speed up the reaction and learning process.
Any one have any more ideas.

Yes - the thought of the stick being an extension pushing the mast towards the fuse is neat -

If we can get a good brain visual for the tail the rest is manageable.
