LG, I've found a ton of building info, tuning info, video, etc. My tricopter (based on rcexplorer.se 2.5) is just about ready to go. Everything seems to be working as expected, thanks to all the forum posts, blogs and youtube videos.

What I haven't found anywhere is actual *flying* tutorials or tips.

I've spent time in simulators (using my TX plugged into my PC), and have also spent a lot of time in MSFT Flight Sim, so think i understand the basics of flying fairly well. Just not sure what to expect as I'll be solo'ing on my first time out.

Figure I'll just work on hovering and trimming for first couple flights, then start to do more race-track ovals around a large open field. Any other tips or sources for info? What are typical n00b mistakes in flying multi-rotor (esp tricopter)? Loss of orientation? Over-controlling?
