Tail-in hovering

The stability of your hover is only as good as your lift off. Practice lifting-off with as little rolling as possible. Hold a "tad" of right aileron before lift-off - and neutralize the aileron immediately after. Applying right aileron after lift-off is too late- you end up correcting as soon as you are air born. It takes a while to find that "tad" sweet spot - so be patient.

Sim speed and Model setup are at 100% - camera speed is 50% (controls zoom) - heading-hold gyro - linear rudder - 25% expo cyclic - collector pitch 0 +3 +6
