new to multirotor's bought my first tri copter

Hi all,
Dan's the name im pretty new to rc aircraft so not sure if I have jumped unto the deep end.

some pics below and will post specs soon.
When learning to fly should I just copy the basic training and Introduction to flying that is given to a standard heli?

My custom built Tri Rotor (1 min 46 sec)

looks good.....

start with tail in... learn to do circles with the tail always facing you....

take it slow.

Take off, then land.... repeat 100x

take off go forward and then come back... then land x100

take off, go left, come back and land x100
take off go right come back and land x100
take off, do a clockwise circle, land x200
take off, do a counterclockwise circle, land x200
take off, do a figure 8, land x200

then do the same nose in (nose pointing towards you)

dont take off and try and fly circles and such, it will end poorly
