So I finally found the ballz to do more than hover. I finally got it at a still hover where I can take my hands off the sticks. So I nosed it over, increase throttle and let it fly. Pulled back on the cyclic nosed up then fwd cyclic to level off. Hovered backwards towards me and did it again. I can fly fwd, backwards, and sideways making circles but I cant nose in. I did this with 3 batteries and on the third I decided to call it quits. I made one last pass and stopped at a hover to bring it in sideways, when a gust of wind came and smacked it into a tree. Little damage. Main shaft, spindle shaft and both blades. Hitting up heliproz on Monday.

You can't ignore nose-in. It is a must. The sooner you do it the less fear you will be.

Nose in a few seconds at a time, and add a few seconds every few flights, will become easy very quickly.

One common strategy to learn "nose in" is to put on training gear and practice at about a foot altitude.

This will reduce risk and maximize learning.

Yeah I learned nose-in on sim very good, then put my heli down nose-in, and sence I knew it would try to skid right, I gave just a hair left cyclic, and it lifted off smooth, and then just small easy movements in stick will keep it from getting away from you.
