@andypants - great advice, I still do that (still in the learning stages, but I'm comfortable hovering in all (non-inverted) orientations, I still start all my flights with a brief hover tail and nose in).

Also to calm your nerves after a near miss, i always pull the heli back near me, and hover tail and nose in...it calms me down and settles any gitters that will likely throw you off if you dont take a breather from a close call.

Awesome! That's the way. The thing is to keep doing it even if it seems painful and not needed anymore. The feeling of when you truly never think about orientation is very liberating compared to avoiding certain flight attitudes etc. I'm still working on my control which blows, but I can still toss the heli around and the only thing usually constraining me is my crap reflexes. The stick movement is natural irrespective of orientation (excapt for inverted but I'm getting there). I truly believe this will help me so much when I finally get the control to start busting out some 'smack' (lol - not in this lifetime!).
