What is your question specifically about inverted flight? Orientations, how to go inverted, inverted pitch curves?

Telling us what transmitter you have got would be helpful as well. However, you should not really be thinking of going inverted until you have practiced it on a SIM.

The DX4e has pre-programmed curves built which are on the aggressive side. It would be better if you could get a programmable transmitter like the DX6i so that you can have more control on how the heli flies.

Anyway, you need to get into the stunt mode of the DX4e in order to get inverted. This is simply done by putting the L hand side switch down. As you do so, you will get a sudden increase in head speed. You can either do this on the ground before you take off or do it while you are in the air. I normally do it on the ground so that you don't get a nasty jump. There is also supposed to be a soft start option available but you will have to ask others how to use it. You should practice flying in stunt mode for some time before trying your first inverted move.

Since the Nano is very aggressive, you may need to put expo on in the DX4e. I can't remember offhand how to do it so you will have to ask others.

Fms isn't realistic at all. It's not much better, but get Helisimrc, it's free, a little more realistic, and there's options you can play with like expo, thottle/pitch curves, etc. Or buy Phoenix or Realflight, they're awesome, you'll be amazed.

As far as getting inverted, watch this youtube video:

inverted

I'm just learning inverted, I have Pheonix, I choose a biggish chopper and flyit in the sports hall, I crashed a gazillion times, but I have since flown inverted for real WITHOUT crashing, Sim's - best value for money. Buy one even before you buy a model!.
