I'm learning nose and side-in orientations at the moment on the sim, and i'm finding nose-in quite a lot easier than side-in. Also, one side is a lot easier for me than the other, is this typical?

It's really hard being disciplined enough to stick to repeating the basic exercises, I keep wanting to go flying off or try a bit of inverted hovering before too long. This always ends with the heli in pieces, lol.

Pitchp: If you mean without crashing I reckon I could do a (virtual) pack ok. If you mean with it nailed to one spot I can probably manage half a minute before I go off for a wander!

In the real world, I'm still getting up the courage to try it out!

sideins I have no problems, as i take off sidein most times. I need to change that. I keep forgetting what my mentor told me. :P she said always set your heli nose in for take off. Ohh I can land nose in, soft landing and hard landings with big flares. It's just I'm trying to nose in, but after about 2-3 mins, i don't know if it the heli or it's me, but it goes wonky, then I over correct then "crash" sim or real life, the same thing always happens

I can take off nose in, hover whole battery and land nose in... But, again, I'm in this hobby for a few years now.

This is only because you dont have a muscle memmory built up for nose in yet,,your controling the nose in with direct thinking and telling your fingers what to do next and your brain just gets tired and confused,,if you just do short nose ins and often like when you take off or before you land you will get to full auto hand movement,,muscle memmory

I will upload some inverted nose in and touching the floor with the blades for you tonight dude,,takes ages for me to upload though,,as for sim speed i only fly 100 percent,dont see it as cheating if you slow it down but i think it will ruin your heli skils,,i fly 500 in phoenix the other day and then went back to the 450 and it was a right handfull as my brain had slowed down for the 500,wont do it again lol,as for normal nose in it really isnt hard its just your not used to it,,in a few weeks you wont remember what all the fuss was about,,i couldnt do inverted but im getting my fingers around it,,its not perfect by any means but it is starting to feel quite controlable,

I can nose in indefinitely. I did it for 4 minutes the other day on my HK450. I stopped the hover and went back to flying when I got bored with it.

I practiced nose in on Phoenix for a week or two before trying it on my real chopper though.

This video was originally about 600 megs before conversion, after conversion to mpeg4 it was 8. Took me about 10 minutes to upload it. Notice it's still HD and there is no noticeable difference in quality if viewed at 720p.

Landing Practice P51 PhoenixRC 2010-11-02 (0 min 41 sec)


Edit:

Correction, apparently Youtube won't let you view that one in 720p. Not sure what the deal is there. Still looks great at 480 though.

Nice,,i hate computer programs unless they are set up with an interface for stupid people,i hate spending ages working out what things to tick and do all the initial setups,i like a window for input file and a window for output file and then play one button monkey man to go
