With r/c planes I have almost no problem flying towards myself but with a heli it’s a completely different story. I find it very hard. Partly I believe it’s due to the fact that I am flying in my livingroom next to my new TV but that does not explain it all. I have to learn this so I thought that I should dedicate this week for nose-in flying, more precisely hovering nose-in. Hovering tail-in is ok since I have practised this pretty much.
Tonight was lesson one. The heli was my new Blade msr 4ch fixed pitch micro heli and I flew through my two lipos (about 8 minutes each). I saw some improvements but still I can’t switch my brain from tail-in to nose-in. Am I moving to fast forward? Are there other steps that I should practice first?
Here’s what I did. I started to hover tail-in and when I was stable I rotated 180 degrees. In this position (nose-in) I tried to maintain a hover. Pretty soon I lost it and had to cut the throttle. This is where I’m glad that the Blade msr are really durable! The exercise with these steps repeated for about 16 minutes. Now the lipos are charging and I’m writing a post and trying to figure out if there is a better way to learn this or if it is just exercise exercise exercise.
Do you have some links to good information about learning to fly a helicopter please post them here. I’m only flying a 4ch micro heli at the moment but my goal is a 6ch 3D heli.
