Now that you are tired of hovering all around the
place, lets get into some forward flight!
Again, like always bring your helicopter to a 3-5
foot hover. Now give it a little forward cyclic
control to move into forward flight.
The helicopter will begin to loose altitude and
at this point, pull your cyclic control back.
This will not only stop the altitude loss, but
will also stop your helicopter from moving forward.
You will also probably notice that the helicopter
will begin to rise in altitude.
You will want to lower the throttle/collective
and bring the helicopter back down to a 3-5 foot
hover. Hover it right back to your original starting
point, and try this a few more times.
As soon as you get used to what your helicopter
feels like in transitional lift, and your transition
into forward flight, lets start a hover about 10-15
From this hover, again give your helicopter some
forward cyclic control, and this time when the
helicopter begins to loose altitude, let it until it
reaches 5-8 foot.
At this point, pull your cyclic back, to slow the
decent, and cause the helicopter to come out of
Again, repeat this a few times and when you are
confident with going into and coming out of forward
flight, move onto the next step, Circle a Rounds!
Do not let it get going to fast towards
