    Well, I'm not exactly sure how to do it, but I think you have to get the rotos spinning in the other direction, as when its hovering normal its taking air from above the blades and forcing it down, pushing it up. When you invert its still doing the same, but now its pulling the heli towards the ground.

    You need to go into idle up mode. This puts the throttle at 100% and your throttle/collective controls the pitch.

    Positive pitch to go up and negative pitch to go down (or up when inverted)

    (You need to be on a model that is 3G capable too)

    Cheers

    What helicopter are you trying to fly inverted?

    I am not sure if the DX5e is up to the job, I could be wrong, but you need a good radio that you can adjust the trottle and pitch curves.

    As said above, you need to set up the F MODE switch with a high % throttle curve or even 100% flat throttle. Once the switch is on, the throttle controls now become the pitch controls.

    Best practised on a sim, I can do it perfect ever time on the sim but not so well in real life. Although I have only ever attempted it on my mCP X.

    Also what sim are you using?
