What's the next step after a hover?
Well after getting my AXE I can say that I'm pretty good in a 2foot circle and can hover with atleast a 45 degree profile to either side. I know the video said to try pirrottes (sp?) but I think its unstable enough of a heli that might be a mistake. I can somewhat move in any direction and come back to a spot but was wondering where I should go from here. Should I try making little figure 8's and get more used to controlling a face-to-face oreintation, or really work on pirrottes. For as simple as they seem in concept, it just seems to be a really hard process on such a bouncy heli.

Also, has anyone else had problems with a Kinetic50? I spent less on that on my first nitro 20 years ago and it was a solid machine. Another guy posted how he thought it was junk though it seemed to get good reviews.

Learn your nose in and 135 degree, both sides. Learn to transition into all orientations. Once youve mastered that, learn forward flight with stall turns, then with banked turns with increasing speed. Its also great practice to take off and land in all orientations.

I'd recommend that you start doing forward flight. Fly a figure 8 pattern tail in. Learn to stop and hover at each point. I used small cones for this. As you get comfortable strating, moving and stopping the heli, you can start turning the heli in the direction that it is moving. Before you know it, you'll be doing figure eights.Old Guys Rule!
