Exactly. . .Rich it's not that the airspeed has decreased. . .it's actually because you're nose high. When you approach your landing spot you decrease power and slowly bring the nose up to slow even more, which is ok except that as the airspeed drops off and the heli begins to settle, it settles in the only direction it can with the nose high attitude. . .backwards. Even as long as I've flown heli's in the sim. . .I still get caught in this every so often. Like Nate says. . . .watch your artificial horizon to be sure you're level and not nose up. Takes practice like anything else, but you'll get it.
