If you can do a sustained inverted hover on a SIM, you can do it in real life. That is if you can get the heli into an inverted position safely in the first place. This is where real life really differs from the SIM. The gyro may not hold as well in real life, the flip rate, power, and pitch settings may be different. Also you have the influence of the wind. Therefore transitions to inverted, whether through a front, back or side flip often looks very haphazard compared to a SIM. It took me hundreds of transitions in all directions to do it safely in real life.

A SIM can really get you so far. I really would recommend a submicro CP to bash around. The Blade Nano CPX is the heli at the moment, being very 3D capable indoors and outdoors. The Walkera MIni CP is more stable and suitable for beginners. I don't recommend the mCPX or the Genius CP because their stock motors are weak and that cause problems for beginners.
