A good practice drill...tail-in out/nose-in in ovals
I thought I would share something that I work on consistently. These are what I call tail-in out/nose-in in ovals. You simply fly tail-in out a good distance…50-75 yards, turn the heli back and fly nose-in towards you. Try to work on flying fast and controlled. I perform these types of circuits regularly on the sim and with my real helis, as well. These are huge confidence boosters, especially when you can perform the nose-in leg of the oval with control.

I will recommend using caution when flying fast directly towards you. Obviously, you don’t want the heli hitting you. Anyway, this is a very good drill that has helped my overall flying skills tremendously. Below is an example video of these circuits recorded in my sim.

I think that's the next thing I'm gonna work on IRL. I've done a few, but never several in a row like that.

Plus, if the blades are tracking well, they make such a wonderful sound as you make the turn away from yourself.

Thats why you learn nose-in

I'm practicing these as well. I can hover nose-in all day long, but there's something a little un-nerving about a heli coming right at you, at speed. The first couple times I did it, the DUCK instict was pretty strong.Revolectrix Beta Team

I'm pretty defiant. I'd probably let it smack me before I gave in to the fact I'd lost control. Actually, that has happened once - fortunately it was the HBFP both times.

Yes, I said "both". It happened twice and I've got a scar from one of them - a tiny little scar, but GD! it hurt...

Nose-in FFF...sounds like a job for HatCam...

I started doing these types of circuits with my HBFPs. I would allow the HBFP to get pretty close to me during the nose-in portion of the circuit. I got pretty comfortable performing with these circuits with the HBFP. Then, I began working on these circuits with the King. Sure, it's still the same stick movements as in the HBFP, but having the King bearing down on you in a rather quick manner the first few times was a little...well, intimidating . However, you adjust and it really didn't take that much more time to become comfortable performing these circuits with the King. The King just requires a little more caution versus the HBFP.

I love doing those racin, its almost hpnotic when you get a rythym going. Its a great exercise to do when you happen to be in a narrow but long flying area.

I've been flying circuits like that since day one because of the shape of my backyard.by now thats perfectly normal to me,if you go back and look at some of my early vids you'll see what i mean

Daisy Rock: why does everyone seen to go counter clockwise?
I've noticed myself falling into that habit. Recently I've tried to kind of equalize the time spent going CW and CCW, be it piros or circles.

That dang ol' gyroscopic precession seems to make it easier to do circles CCW than CW - the nose tends to want to go downward in CW.

Dang, Doogie - after dealing with a TRIX for a couple of months, seeing that little CP is like watching a mosquito buzz by.
