A quick thanks to @Cib for his time and tuition last night. Thanks to multi crew he could fly in the same cockpit and take control to demo techniques. I learnt lots about how to fly a helo and what I should be doing to improve. It is definitely an area where experience of fixed wings is of minimum value. I spent this morning hovering over a join in the parking area and managed to keep it within about 20 feet. A first. I look forward to more training
Most important lesson learnt from @Cib last night. Trim the aircraft to hover before leaving the ground. Not leave it in neutral and try to trim once multi tasking.
