A large and often overlooked component of this has to do with how a person sets up their controls.

If you have your throttle and stick sitting on a desk to the left and right of your keyboard, where you are "freehanding" the cyclic you'll always be struggling.

Helicopter sticks are in the middle because that's where your finer motion skills are performed the easiest.

The closer your flight controls are to resembling an actual helicopter, the better off you're going to be.

Aside of having good training content like this, controls set up should be emphasized more.

Absolut right
Beside the actual flying talking about setups and hardware is basic stuff.
We all learn a lot from the experience of others. Videos and Tutorials are tools you have to know how to work with.
Joyning a squad or any kind of group providing you with lots of experience and different opinions is better than any video

It's better to be done with 1.5.8 where everything is OK with shadows.
Just my 5 cents.

It's not a bug. It's a feature.

+1. That's why helicopter pilots are checked against this risk during the initial medical exam.
Just don't fly straight into the sun.
