I finally went for it today with my heart thumping and my knees shaking.
When my heart rate settled, I was like a child with a new toy, kept doing it over and over. Now I feel I am beginning a new chapter in model Helicopter flying. I am so happy. Raptor 30 V2 with metal head, red dampeners, white paddles, OS37, carbon blades, SL310 Gyro, S3010 tail servo, Futaba 7CH, 138DF PPM on 35MHz.

Thank you all for your help and support. Now that I have seen my Rappy upside down, and not afraid of it, I am starting to do the things I practiced on the Sim. Things like tic tocs, flips etc. I got a Gy401 gyro and 9254 servo, fitted them last night. Can't wait till this evening to try them.

Great job. I can do it on the sim but still don't have the balls to do it in real life.

I am wondering if an on board device could be used to save the heli in such situations. For example a spare channel could be used, operated by the idle up switch such that when you switch to idle up, a device on the helicopter indicates you are in idle up and even forces negative pitch using a spare servo, giving you time to save the heli.
