Default Method for learning nose-in

JetA-1,
How are you trying to learn nose in? I ask because some methods are higher risk than others. Let us know and we can give you some tips.

There really is no reason to crash learning nose-in if you are careful and spin some time on the sim.

And for kudos, learning nose in makes learning inverted hovering MUCH easier!

keep at it on the sim until it's hard-wired in your brain. and when you're on the sim, don't just plant the heli nose-in and hover it there tank after tank. keep switching to tail-in and right and left side, because in ff you'll always be transitioning from one aspect to the other and the transition has to become second nature just like the nose-in hovering.

I learned nose in with the sticks on, hovering over a parking lot. It was just like learning regular hovering but it took MUCH longer. I would lift off just a couple inches and try to hold it in position. As you get better, you can go up higher.
