Yes just make sure you can hover perfectly (no incorrect "corrections") in all orientations, piro, and fwd flight with a small heli and the settings set to advanced.

Turn on wind and learn to compensate. Make it harder than it is in real life. There is a "pucker factor" the sim just doesn't capture. I cement orientations and maneuvers in my mind with a small heli like the Furion 450 and the sim speed up at 150% and maybe even a little gusty wind which leaves no room for mistakes.
