Now that you have learned about forward flight,
and have experience transitioning into and out of
forward flight, lets try a circle around.
Now bring your helicopter to a 3-5 feet hover,
and move into forward flight.
Now bank the helicopter so you are staying about
20 feet away from yourself about 10 feet up, in a
circle to which ever direction is easier for you.
After a few circles around yourself, let the
helicopter go to 30-40 feet away from you, and 20-30
foot in the air.
Slowly increase the altitude and distance till
you are circling about a 300 foot radius, and in the
air 100 feet. This will take some time, but will
allow you to develop a sixth sense, the ability to
determine what your helicopter is doing at a
distance. Once you have mastered this, switch your
If you were going clockwise, go counter-clockwise
What ever you do, do not let it get at
too steep of an angle towards the ground.
