Welcome to the forum

It's impossible to learn any kind of flying by studying books. The best course of action is an instructor.

The reason you can't learn from books is that your hand/eye/brain coordination needs to be trained so that you automatically react, with thinking about any "rules", to the movement of the aircraft -- or, some would say, predict the movement of the aircraft. You can only achieve that with hands-on experience.

Most people here would recommend a good simulator, such as Phoenix or Realflight, for a start, or even the free FMS. In my case I got a coaxial heli and learned on that. It's much more stable than a CP heli and can stand a few bad landings, but it at least gets you used to using the controls. If you do go the coaxial route, just make sure it's one with full 4-channel control, not the really cheap ones which often have just 3 or even 2 control functions.

I agree with abenn. However, sometime getting an rc book can help us to understand more about the setting, maintenance and some basic knowledge about RC models clearly and quickly I do found this one :
You could take as a reference.
Have a nice day!

The relative ease and cost of getting it nose-in depends in part on the helicopter you fly to achieve this orientation. An inexpensive fixed pitch heli such as the E_sky Honey Bee or Walkera #4 are less fragile and cheaper to repair than a collective pitch bird.

Practice again and again. Of course, the choice of RC heli is also very important

You can get FMS with a controller for $20. Install that and fire up the Hughes heli that comes with it... That's the cheapest way to start practicing. It's not the most realistic on the market, but it's good enough to learn orientation.
