Great advice RCHSF!

Get a sim to start with and learn to use the TH on it.

It's very easy to get in the habit of just hitting the reset button on the sim when you crash, but there is no reset button on a real need to be in the habit of hitting TH first.

One other thing, and I promise to shut up.

When I think I'm in trouble I hit Throttle Hold.
If it's re-flyable after the crash.

1. Go get my bird, pick it up.
2. Next I remove any grass, or what ever wrapped up in servos, linkages, or main, and tail rotor system.
3. Straighten Main Blades Out.
4. I make sure Throttle is at low stick.
5. Then flip Idle up off, to normal if it was on.
6. Next I flip Throttle Hold Off. (if bird is still flyable) (if not unplug pack)

I do it in this order, because, if some junk was wrapped around your rotor system, linkages, or servos, and you take idle up off first, you may break, bend, strip something.
