Learning one new trick that moves your flying forward by leaps and bounds....
Since getting my sim going,I have been working on backwards inverted flight.

WOW....Adding that one small thing has changed everything.
Mobius loops added to my flying makes everything so much smoother and more graceful.

Now I don't have to stop to set up the next move...Just fly out of one thing and easily into the next.

What was the biggest milestone for you?...So far
I literally never use the word literally right.

A couple months ago I started trying rainbows, and I finally decided, wait, if I flip it over backwards slow (1st part of the rainbow) and then level out and hold it inverted, week, shoooot, I can start hovering inverted hover for the first time ever! Now I'm doing it a lot and getting more comfy with holding it skids UP for longer periods of time. Loving it!

That is a much bigger deal than people let on

Maybe the biggest milestone of all really but often overlooked...even by me obviously.

The second huge milestone for sure....Assuming the hover is not an actual milestone.lol....If so...

#1.Hover.
#2.Step out in forward flight.
#3.Inverted.

After those three,the milestones get less difficult to achieve but open up more possibilities.

Hovering without training gear.

Everything I accomplished after that was based on the hovering core principles.

Hovering without training gear.
Agree totally. I learned hover w/ training gear for what seemed like forever (maybe 3 months way back in 1995), then put that gear back on to learn fig 8's and circles, leading to forward flight. I did not have a sim back then, so much fuel burned w/ training gear.

Looks like my Cowboys are gonna find a way to lose again at home.

Inverted forward figure 8's were very confusing for a while, after I got those figured out, most everything became easier.
My biggest problem is doing everything smooth!

still working on a smooth right side/left side and nose in hover, I can do it but holding nose in is taking more consentration, I try to do each position atleast 30 sec. also for some reason right hand turns are harder than left......bottom line>>>>>>>> getting comfortable in those positions so its 2nd nature. just gotta keep at it. As for inverted I can fly planks upside down all day, helis, different story........oCAUTION!!! politicians may be hazerdous to your well being

Hovering around Atlanta

Ha! I thought this was going to be one of those "I learned to fly my heli using this one, weird, old trick" scams

For me it was nose-in hover back in 1991. Flying around (normal, skids down) was little effort with fixed-wing skills as a base. So my approch (literally) to learning nose-in was by flying high forward (100ft?) directly toward myself and slowing to a hover before passing over my head. The first half dozen-or-so stops got me dropping the tail out of elevator confusion but the planned bail-out of doing a 180 made recovery painless. After a couple tanks of fuel went through that ol' Concept 30 I had that beast down at eyeball level, 10-15ft in front of me, staring it down begging my girlfriend to shoot the momentous of occasion with my camera. One or two pix would have done it but she emptied the 35mm cassette! I'll never forget that day

So many heli's - too little time...

Me too!

I remember nose in...I could do it with the 130, but would never try it with my Logo. One day I turned left instead of right, with the Logo, because I was too close to the trees, and it was coming at me nose in.
One of the guys at the field ask if it was my first time nose in...I said it was the first time on purpose. Nose in hovering just fell right in place after that.

My big challenge right now is banked circles and figure 8s. every time I bank it enough to mkake a turn I'm afraid it's going to fall out of the sky.

Hardest for me, was Inverted backwards, counter, and clockwise. But Forwards, inverted either way pretty easy. Working on Piro-flips which I can now do, but not pretty, or in one spot but I'm getting their. Sim is a great tool.

I'm getting wordy on this subject but re: nose-in:
Back when I learned it, I'm pretty sure someone told me to just walk around in front of the thing (ON training gear), and lift off nose-in. My t-gear was a "roto-pod" with wiffle balls on the sticks, so it could roll around. On a flat surface (parking lot) it would roll around when the heli got light, so I started keeping it in one spot and not rolling around, then started getting it in the air nose-in. I got comfy with this fairly quickly and just kept at it in the air.

Started this year out just learning inverted forward figure 8, that was a huge for me at the time.

Then I went back to basics, hover all orientations at 5 points, upright and inverted.
Today I was able to hit all hover orientations at all points less than 3 feet off the ground.
Everything was in full control steady and I was calm.

Next on the list, be able to maintain a constant speed at inverted backwards. And master the backward inverted 8,
Clean up my sloppy rolling circuit, and piro flips,

For me, hovering without a crash. That's about as far as I ever got really.

Then learning it again FPV. Everything is easier there because there's only one skill set you have to learn for the whole thing.

I never could figure out inverted flight, it was just beyond me. I could do it in planks but in the heli, forget it...
