I have really enjoyed watching "Freddy Can Fly" on youtube.

Watch at YouTube

I am sure there are many more on there but I liked his videos.

Remember.. freddy can fly and so can you!! LOL I love his catch phrase.

Heli size does not matter, basics are basics for all sizes. 450 should make it easier vs smaller ones. Heli's larger than 450's give even more stability and "float" for more time to think and make corrections.

Flying Basics-

Learn all orientations up right and inverted.
Learn circles in all directions and orientations.
Be able to flip and roll the heli towards you, away, from all sides nose down and nose up in control.
Piro - left and right with cyclic corrections to hold position, start inverted too.

3D will expand from there, a few good starting points:

Rainbows are a great start, elevator and aileron and can be worked on as your perfecting the basics.

Piro's - move from stationary piro's to controlled piro movement - circles, back and forth, down runway, etc.

Funnels - a natural progression from circles

Basic flight
Thanks fastflyer20 that sounds like solid advice to me I fly my k120 indoors it has a high power to weight ratio and no wind plus it's crashable if I hit throttle hold fast i have got hovering down and slow speed figure 8 s. But my 450 has momentum to deal with and I'm getting better piros are OK how do you deal with fast flight momentum and not get scared your going to loose it without cutting a loop short could I have throttle and pitch curves wrong what did you set them at first thanks a lot I'm determined
