Are you using the allow rudder Yaw trim in the options? I Don't use this, as you need to trim it out to neutral once in hover.

As the others have said, fly the aircraft to the almost perfect hover, direction and position, then use these extra helpers, there not going to be able to correct for major corrections, only to help you out some.

Example: When side on to a 6 knot wind trying to aim, you will need to lean on the rudder pedals, the aircraft will want to weather vane into the wind when trying to hover over a spot on the ground, you may need a little cyclic stick (Trim) into the wind also to help the auto hover hold keep you in the correct position etc.

Turn on target should work regardless of whether you're in a hover or not.

If you turn on the targeting system, set T.O.T. then the HMS, you can fly the helicopter where you want by looking and designating...

Unless you have route following or FD on.
