You might be missing the idle up switch.. There's usually a switch you need to flick to keep your head speed up when you go into negative collective. If you don't hit it, then you just turn the motor off, and fall like a brick.

If you aren't missing that little gem, then there's no trick. Just keep trying and eventually you'll learn what inputs to give when you're inverted to keep a controlled hover.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

The right switch is probably the throttle hold. So that the throttle comes up? And yes, the other on the left is probably idle up.

Other than that, you just need to keep trying, and you'll eventually learn which way does what on the sticks. Are you using G4 for a sim? If so try the hover trainer, and set it to start you out inverted. That way at least it settles you into a stable inverted hover from the get go. Might make things easier for you to figure out.

Anyway, no trick. Just learn to do it inverted the same way you learned to do it upright. That is assuming you HAVE learned to do it upright.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

can you hover upright lmao?? Better learn that first. By the time you can do that you will be able to figure out inverted

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

How long have been flying? I mean the Sim? Just like a child who's learning to walk, it's hard sometimes to tell him how to walk but to let him do it and eventualy he/she will. The bigest secret is practice it will be lttle frustion but after that it will be follow by a smile... conitnue to practice.

Fly hard, Land safe

In all orientations??

Remember to ensure the Tx is calibrated correctly - if so, should be no problems.

Remember that when inverted you 'pull down' to 'go up'

3D?? No - just another input error!!!

If the nose of your heli is pointed straight, up, there's only one way you can go.. And that's down.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

You flip the helicopter inverted, then back upright. Do it repeatedly and in quick succession. Once you get quick enough, you'll be doing it before the heli has levelled out on either side.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.
