I guess what I was really asking was how long did it take others before they felt "in control" of their first rev as opposed to constantly reacting to what it's doing in the air?
I still dont feel in control when trying new stuff. Stick with it mate. I have been flying on and off for at least two years. The first 6 months I flew the rev solidly but now it is proberly once a month or so. It proberly took me about 10-20 hours before I could hold basic flight with out hitting the ground to oftan. Then a good 50-60 hours before I could hold any form of inverted hover (that being self taught as there are no other flyers near me). Like everything, some people learn quicker than others.
