So today....IT CLICKED

I was able to do slow controlled circles in my 12x12 garage...I started tightening the circles and was able to get them to a few feet radius.

Wow..so awesome, i was only doing right circles so I will start working on left circles next

I am having the same problem. It drives me nuts because with my mSR I could do nice slow circuits and circles all day long. Now either in sim or the mCP X I can do high speed banked turns no problem. I can slowly move forward and stop, but for get about nice slow circuits or circles coordinated with the nose facing in the forward direction. I either pick up way too much speed and get out of control or the heli is slipping sideways. After reading this post I focused on doing this in the sim for an hour with no luck!!

The strangest thing has happened to me over the last week or so. I am now more comfortable with nose in then tail in.

I spent time on the mcpx focusing on all orientation hovering...staying in a tight area with limited elevation loss or movement

Now, can do slow clockwise small circles in my garage, I am working on counter clockwise next
