heli more stable inverted ?

When hovering inverted, I noticed the heli seemed much more stable... is it just me or is it an aerodynamic fact ?

I find that when hovering upright, I am always making some minor corrections. Inverted, however, I was able to bring the heli down to a couple inches off the grass and the disc was barely moving. Maybe it's just because I am much more concentrated...

I would have thought the opposite, that it would be more stable with the weight of the heli under the blades. But then again, inverted the airflow is undisturbed coming off the blades.

Did anybody else notice this ?
