    Looking to buy a Alias

    I'm thinking about getting a alias and was curious on how easy it is to lose orientation. I've been flying a Syma x5c for the better part of 2 years and I lose orientation of it and have to set it down. Basically I can only do out and back maneuvers while standing behind the quad so I don't lose it.

    It is like any quad and is easy to loose oreintation. For me practice and white props in the rear help.

    So when you hover and the front of the quad is facing away from you, then you rotate it so it's facing you, do you have to fly basically right is left and left is right and backwards becomes forward?

    That is correct. It is a good idea to practice keeping the aircraft stationary, directly in front of you while flying head-in (facing you.) You don't need to fly fast or make huge movements. Small corrections are enough to train your reflexes and hand-eye coordination. Remember when flying head-in that you need to "turn toward the danger."
