Don't laugh at me!!! I painted the right side of my first canopy red and always remembered "right red, right red, right red".
We wern't laughing at you! Well maybe a little but the fact remains that what ever you did to get in the air you got there and at some point it clicked and I'll bet your canopy's aren't red on the right anymore are they Do what ever seem to work too fly fly fly. Oh ya and have fun doin it.

When I learned to fly noise-in the one thing I found most useful regarless of altitude... The words, "follow to stop" What that basically means, when your model is facing you, should it drift left, right, forward or back, that is the direction your stick will travel to stop it, or slow it down, which ever the case.

Cheers,

Robin Jackson

Good suggestion Robin Jackson! Though I hope that won't make learning backward harder for someone. And after learning a basic rule such as "follow to stop" or "catch the low wing/blade," I found the best practice to make the brain adapt to changes in orientation is figure 8's. Do them very, very slow at first, then increase speed as you progress and build confidence. Before too long it will all be muscle memory automatic. Then you can learn inverted, backward and finally backward inverted using figure 8's. Good luck!

Don't think about it to much and relax. I learned all orientations on the sim.
I hear people saying to start at 50 feet up. I say start at 5 to 10 feet off the deck so you can view the heli much easier. It worked for me. Always have a planned bail-out, and not by dropping your TX and diving to the ground. Pitch it up into the sky. The earth can be unfriendly at times.

Thanks heli-cuzz, Did you just jump right in at the last or did you start from the top? Thanks for the reply and i think, as well as some others, have learned some neat tricks to further us along..

Springdale? You're not too far from Mountain Home, are you? You've been out flyin' in the snow? I've been holdin' out for nicer weather, ...like last week end! I'm new to the area down here, you have a decent field to fly there?

This has been a great thread, and there's been some great ideas, suggestions and comments. Having been flying helis for twelve years, and having much trouble with nose-in hovering, I bought an indoor coaxial rotor heli (twister) specifically to solve this problem, and this has now brought me to the stage where I am quite happy with nose-in, with any heli. (By the way, they do fly superbly in the garden when the wind is calm, and similarly in a sports hall!) It just goes to show that there are a myriad of ways for solving a problem.
