I remember years ago being pointed at Radds school of rotary flight here http://www.dream-models.com/eco/battery01.html and felt like this after a while which was the point I said sod this and just did my own thing.It may have cost a little more with all the crashes and a lot of running before I could walk, but I think I would have given up after a few batteries doing Radds and taken up knitting or something.One thing I did learn really early on was to always turn the model back to tail in after it sets down, less important with a multi though but still a good habit as there';s nothing worse than tipping over on take off because the model little side on.

I was a member of the Ikarus forum years ago and had many a discussion with Radd - and on my fixed pitch Ikarus Piccolo I did try his ';school'; and it got me in the air with what was a twitchy little devil to fly Those little Piccolos were ok when you got the knack but the devils own to learn to fly rotary wing on .... after graduating to a Robbe Eolo I found things a lot easier - with a bit of weight and inertia which helped no end ...I soon realised - like you - that it';s best just to stooge about and learn as you go ... yes you might make mistakes - but you invariably learn from them - and if you';re lucky you don';t make them again ... I found that narrow side on figure of eights helped - as you say it sort of just comes to as you go along - and it';s only flying towards you some of the time with an eight :)I have never had any inkling to try rotary wing aerobatics - to me helicopters are hovering masters and I fly pretty scale ..... don';t want to be a demented mosquito on speed doing things helicopters can';t do in real life :)Funny though I can fly a plank in any orientation up/down/sideways in/out inverted - loops rolls - immelmans - landing coming towards you dead stick anything and it all comes very naturally ... but put me in charge of a rotary wing and it all goes to sh*t It all seems very ';urgent'; somehow ...
