+1 on getting a flight simulator.
Even the best heli teacher in the world cannot help you learn the hand-eye coordination. Only repetition can achieve that.
If I came out there and spent 8 hrs. a day with you for a week, we'd barely get past a tail in hover.
30 minutes a day on a SIM and a few "How-to" videos will get you to become an amazing pilot before your heli is even delivered.
$200 spent on the SIM will save you thousands in repair costs.

Welcome to the hobby.

Try here as well.

Edited
There was a website IRCHA (International Radio Control Helicopter Association)that had a 7 steps on suggested maneuvers (Pilot Proficiency Program) to help you progress all the way to 3D but it seems to be down. I will check my files and email them to you if I have them. Stay tuned.

Another factor - the brain needs some time to 'process and organize' what you've learned - i.e. too much all at once becomes counter-productive.
e.g. I personally have found that 1 serious practice session a day, 5 or 6 days a week, is *much more* conducive to learning than 1 lengthy 3-hour session a week. I seriously doubt that 8-hour days of instruction would work very well.
Also, as one of the fixed-wing instructors at my local club, I've seen students do well on the first or second flight of a training session, but then regress on the 3rd or 4th - meaning that it would have been better to stop at the second flight.

There is actually good precedence for such training working fine. The late Ernie Huber took many students from ground zero to be able to fly gentle circuits in a week's time at his flight school in Florida. While simulator time is extremely valuable and a great head start, those of us who learned to fly before sims were invented still learned to fly, and it didn't take forever to do so.

The biggest issue I see here is the OP's location is not going to have weather really suitable for a pleasant learning experience. There is a big difference between getting in a few flights between warm-ups in a car a few days a week and trying to get lots of flights in over multiple days with snow pack and 15 mph winds.

There is a learning curve and when it comes to this hobby, there are many hats we need wear to succeed in this hobby.

We need to figure a lot of things out, that’s where someone’s expertise will be valuable.

A good instructor has to be able to identify the individual, match up with the right strategy for that person to understand and to acquire the skill they need in the ideal order.

The human mind is quite remarkable and doesn’t speak a language, rather through emotions, habits and tendencies.

Learning is unlocking a combination safe - it’s all about the “sequence”

There also has to be a good teacher aswell as a good student. Both has to have good communication and commitment to make it work.

After helping so many people for so many years ... here’s what we find is needed:

- Good Attitude
- Communication
- Lots of research
- Look at all materials on the topic and decide for yourself
- Make a choice and constant action everyday until it’s done.

All very good posts on the subject. We must remember, age is everything in this hobby! What a 17yr old can do takes a 60 yr old a very long time for the most part. There are exceptions to this rule but they are far between. The other rule is when you are beginning and your pride & joy just took a dirt nap, it bruises the ego so remember they will happen and it is best to not let it be your pride and joy. So remember backups and spares.

This hobby has prolonged satisfaction, and instant defeat. Most cannot deal with the later. It is kind of like going hunting and if you miss that shot at that prize buck, you must turn around and shoot the radiator out of your truck including the front left tire.

That is correct Mr JerryK!

Part of our RC Heli Flight School Comprehensive Program was:
- a trip to the Optometrist
- Eye-to-Hand coordination / reaction test
- Goals coupled with realistic expectations to help potential pilots coupe with the eventuality of the hobby.

Sadly ... most seldom through the initial purchase b/c lack of attitude and preserverence in the face adversity.
