I practice hover all the time. Learning to control the bird against it's will can be as much of a challenge as throwin it around!!!
The stronger the gusting wind, the more interesting it becomes.
The pros swear by it and I know it has vastly improved my flyin'.
Just not as good for pickin up Heli-chicks. (or Heli-babes, depending on your coast)

Heli-chicks? They must be known to roam with unicorns cuz I've never seen one.

And if you mean company paid eye-candy that doesn't count. They are there for a paycheck and are gone to spend it elsewhere.

They also work part time at the local strip club to support their single parented child with cancer, while going to college.

That was back when nose-in and side-in required the cameraman to move around.

As observer or camera man for my buddy learning I always stood behind a tree or other obstacle I could duck in when he lost control, which happened often in the early days without rudder servo and the fact he had no one to help him learn.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I remember back in the 80's when some daring soul would set a heli on the flight line and started spooling up, the rest of us plankers would quietly huddle and go over escape routes.

Any landing where you can walk away is a good landing.

If they can use the aircraft again, it's a GREAT landing.

Using this same criteria for a flight, I'd say you did great!

When I got started back around '94 with a Shuttle, all I could do for like a YEAR was hover around with TRAINING GEAR on. And I thought I was doing great if I didn't lose it

I remember learning to fly my BeltCP... I went thru dozens of main gears, hundreds of blades, shafts etc... those things must have been made from toast bread they were so fragile. nearly quit until I purchased a Sim... I then realized that the daddy long legs training gear was actually a hinderance to learning.

now just go out and try, cause in flight recovery is based on learing to hover in all orientations including inverted. learn that and crashing becomes a rare occurance.

You have to get out there and try different things, and not just do what feels easy.
the rest of us plankers would quietly huddle and go over escape routes
thats funny... now we say that about old plankers doing a maiden

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
