Default Blade CP X beginner

Been flying planes for maybe 18 years or so, thought I would jump into the world of Helicopters so I picked up a Blade CP X. Been flying in the livingroom and training on a old version of Real Flight. This is a video of the me flying the little jewel after only one month. My 15 year old daughter is trying to keep up with the cam. We had a family day out on a beautiful winter day.

Thats pretty good, I fly planes too and learning to fly my nano has been more of a challenge than I expected, got it for chrismas and only now can confidently fly it around the living room without crashing. I haven't had it outside on the open yet. I still have not developed instincts to spin it 180 and face me without thinking about it, although I just flew my plane off the frozen lake last week no problems whatsover with nose or tail orientation but ironically still can't get it with my heli lol.

I know what you mean on the orientation, I also struggle when the heli is not facing outward bound. I am getting better all the time and like you said, flying planes I have no problems at all. Helis are harder to fly to be sure.

When the rc heli crashes you don't die lol.
Was refering to rc planes and helis not real ones and i have no clue as how they compare other than aerodynamics.

Well if you are talking about RC then the dif is that a plane is more predictable, it just glides along with no worries, a few corrections is about all that is needed. A heli is like blancing a marble on a plate of glass, it is a fight from the start to finish.
