I fried my brain yesterday...
I sure hope it fixes itself.. ;-)

See if you can reproduce the problem.
  1. Start nose in upright stable hover 30 feet in front of pilot station
  2. Long rainbow away from pilot into inverted tail in hover
  3. Hold inverted tail in hover for 3 seconds
  4. Long rainbow back to start position, and hold nose in hover for 3 seconds
  5. Repeat step 1 until it looks perfect. (yea right)
Prior to finding this new method to fry my brain cells
  • I had all upright hover orientations down cold
  • I could upright hover slow or fast piro nose right with full confidence while holding position and altitude
  • I could upright hover slow or fast piro nose left, but with greatly reduced confidence, a fair amount of "*stick checking", and a fair amount of drift.
  • I could nose in invert hover with great confidence
  • I could side in hover (either side) with some confidence
  • Tail in invert hover took great concentration, and holding a position was damn difficult
Even two flights after my little brain frying trick, I'm just a stick checking fool who nearly drove his heli into the ground multiple times while doing my 'normal' routine....

I sure hope things are better today after I repeat the brain fry experiment :-)
