Ensure one keeps the dials out of the “red”
Pushing the engine too hard results in an engine stop. If one is high enough, one can sometimes restart it but not often.
You often have to “coax” the aircraft height wise and in general pre-empt what the aircraft needs you to do before you get in to the situation.
Ie fllying up the sides of Ayers Rock (my apologese, Ive forgotten the correct name for it (eroola? uuula?) takes a bit of a “run up” and creative hovering and sideslipping compared to modern helis that can just up and over, but thats what I find “fun”.
Also, dont be scared of setting the flight model to what suits you rather than “super sexy macho expert”
I find a middle of the road setting emulates what I think a heli would fly to a trained pilot. Not too easy but not too hard either and compensates for lack of real world stimulus/interation)
moral? Be gentle.
