Default Why not fly right side up?

It seems like every ad I see, every picture and even the articles in the AMA magazine show helis flying upside down. Night flying, indoors and upside down. Doesn't anyone fly normally anymore?

Sometimes but it's usually scale helis.

I really liked that picture of the upside down Whiplash in the last AMA mag though
