Default helicopter maneuvers

Is there a guide on the internet that shows and tells how to perform the basic and 3d maneuvers for rc helicopters?
I want to start trying these maneuvers in realflight g2.

Raptortechnique.com has some information on how to get started doing basic maneuvers and 3D. But he is moreless referring to the raptor. But it should be the same for the G2. He explains how newbies can get oriented with the heli at different angles.

Default RE: helicopter maneuvers

Have you mastered hovering in all orientations upright and inverted? How about upright forward flight? How about inverted forward flight?

I only ask these questions because you have most of your posts asking questions about the Honey Bee. Take things slowly and don't rush it. If you rush learning how to fly, it will be an expensive endeavor. Take baby steps and don't try to do any maneuvers until you've mastered basic flight. Once you have a good handle on basic orientation and forward upright and inverted flight, all those maneuvers will make sense in your head and you won't need any "guide". The only "basic" maneuver you will need, is a flip. Flips will work your way into inverted flight.

Yeah I am still working on inverted flight and flying nose in a bit more aggressively/confidently but a loop or roll every now and again will makes you fell good about yourself. Next weekend is inverted hover and flight weekend at Clints. You ready man?
