As far as my understanding of helicopters goes, it is generally much harder to learn to pilot a helicopter when compared to a plane. This is because a helicopter is naturally unstable and would crash if left on it's own, while the airplane has aerodynamic stability when up in the air.
But why aren't there auto-pilot systems for helicopters to take all the difficult work away? There are already auto hover systems available for helicopters, so shouldn't it be possible to manufacture a helicopter that is trivially easy to handle?
Obviously a lot more goes into piloting than just controlling the aircraft, but it would be great to be able to skip a large chunk of it.
