I have heli trimmed for stable hover.
If I have heli going forward (stick forward) and I just release stick (to neutral), the heli seems to stop and come backward. Same effect for right/left/backward. A 3d simulator does not do that. Is that just the design of the MSR, or can I make a mod to lessen that affect?

I sold my mSR and I'm waiting for an mCP. The mSR is by design a beginner heli.

You have to think that this heli weighs so little that it will be hard for in not to make some extra movements to go back to stable hover after going full speed. (if this is what you are asking)

If you get better with the heli then once you are going fast in one direction and try to bring it around you can input slight controls where it comes to a hover rather smoothly with little "opposite way movement".

As far as trainer goes. I dont know if you have the heli with the swash hooked on the longest knob (not sure exact name) and the controller on performance mode but this sucker can move and is very agile.

I agree that you can make it almost a trainer if you turn the dual rates to the lowest performance mode and keep the swash on the smaller knobs but this sucker can haul inside.

I wouldnt call it a trainer. The mSX is a trainer the mSR is a beginner to intermediate bird.

I think this 'whip lash' feature has held back my learning curve. Yet, it took time for me to see the event. I have all but removed the fly bar weights, in an attempt to over come this nature. Yet, it is still there.
Try painting the ends of the fly bar white. Put a bit of paint on the underside of the main blade ends too. Hey,while your at it, for orientation put a dab on the tail rotor blade ends.
Now! watch the main blades in relation to the fly bar. It is like that dream were you can not move! I wonder about the gyro in the 5in1.
Nothing I do with the DX7 seems to change any thing in that respect.
On the learning curve. Chris

main and tail motors on the Novus last about 10 flights and then they are toast

Yep, the mSR is a solid, fun machine. I've done no mods except mix out the pre-mixed rudder to aileron/elevator mixing. On my 9303 I setup two mixes- one for rudder to aileron and one for rudder to elevator. I held full rudder in each mix and added mix until applying rudder did not change elevator or aileron. This, to me, made things a little more predictable and flight seems a bit more like my "real" helis.

I've had this thing bouncing off walls, trees and grills, and usually it just keeps on flying- sometimes not even touching the ground after a strike. Great fun for minimal expense.

Mains and tail motors toast in 10 gos! Cripes! That is counter productive. Charge bats & swap out motors S.T.O.P. . That is a lot of down time. Some folks can omit cost as a factor, not me. Now I feel bad about complaining about mSR tail motors.
I do not understand the programing discussed here, but I got'a wonder. Thanks Chris

While your mSR is on the bench, play with you rudder control. You'll notice that aileron and elevator deflect with rudder input. I mixed this out in the radio.

I love my little MSR. I have been playing with it a lot lately. Found a big open building to play in

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Big open space. great!
I'v been trying to work up to a stall turn. All I can manage is a tail slide and recovery. I wouldn't be so chicken if there were more space. These thing can actually move, move right out of sight. Good luck Chris
