Common cause of a crash. Loss of orientaion as an example. How would you recover?

Ohhhhh!! LOL Just trying something new and not being two or three mistakes high. I don't like to fly high so often I try new stuff with out room for error. It is a bad habit. But feels great when you pull something new off.Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

mostly flying too low ends up as a crash but it isnt as fun flying high so might as well plan on a crash every now and then. Team HeliDirect

I usually crash low and inverted....sometimes I get a little disoriented when trying to cut the grass

That's the cause of the last 2 crashes of my 700E

Loss of orientation and denial that you can't get it back. Best move is full power and go for the clouds.Champion,Magic,MiniBoy,Xcell60+50,Intrepid,Intrepid Gas,Baron30,Whisper,300X,mCPXv1v2,Concept,Nexus

When the rudder stick gets out of sync with the cyclic stick the main rotor unexpectedly gets perpendicular to the ground, loses lift, and it's good night Irene...

9 times out of 10 in my case.

I will agree that the "beer curve" will get to you quick if your not careful though.

When I first started, holding orientation was difficult. A lot of pilots told me to get higher so I could rectify my positions. I ended up crashing harder because of the altitude.

Flip the throttle hold, go to the wreckage, unplug the power and say a pray.

Try flying up high and moving the rudder to regain the orientation and bring it back to your most comfortable orientation.
