Many people who look into flying a 4ch Fixed pitch (FP) or a 6ch Collective Pitch (CP) heli hear about RADDS method.
Here is RADDS method shown in video form with a CP heli. Beginner Heli Training
IF you have a sim, you can try to apply this training method. The most important part of the sim is to NOT just jump up in the air and float all over the place, try to discipline yourself to control the heli and put it where you want it. This is the #1 problem I see with beginners, Jumping up and counting "I did not crash" as the sim training. Work on controlling the bird.
I was able to hover for the first time the Blade 400 in double garage sticking to the disciplined Radd method, all the way to hover near zero issues. But read carefully and understand it's all done in micro steps. I would like to see an orientation learning with this type of easy steps. Read digest and do as he says, fantastic for me.
I highly recommend RADDS as well. I was a plane pilot who wanted to learn helis so I could build a X-8 for work. I learned by using RADDS in one of our open warehouse areas flying a Blade 450. It takes time and patience but it does work if you stick to the program. There were a couple of times that I wanted to give up because it is hard to learn helis in comparison to planes. Stick with it, use a sim and good luck!
Radd's method works brilliantly. I have had great success with it and have just ventured into idle-up for the first time! A Blade SR flies much better in idle-up, so that's how I'll be flying from now on.
This is where I'm at now from following the Radd method, forgive the "oops" landing at the end of the first flight. Now I need some more flying space so I can fly higher!
Hey, I'm not trying to beat you up over it. You can fly as close to yourself as you want. Someone looking through a camera is particularly vulnerable. Helicopters are unpredictable at best. They can inflict severe injury. Non flyers are often unaware of just how much injury they can cause. I'm learning on an SR myself and it scares me to death. It's up to the pilot to protect everyone within range.
