Aimed at the intermediate sport flier like myself who can do loops/rolls about 3 secs of inverted and of course nose/side ins in upright mode.

Can do a basic inverted circuit on the sim, but in real life, loose orientation (5 mistakes up!) and panic! My last crash was due to bringing it lower to maintain orientation and still losing it!!!

Would like tips on inverted circuits and how to do pie dish/funnels/tictocs etc. and progress from there.
Thanks.

I may have misinterpreted, but if you can only do a 3 second inverted pause during loops/rolls should you really have tried an inverted circuit??? Maybe learn to hover inverted on the sim first then try the circuit, then you can always bring it back to the hover if it starts to get away from you

A brief description and diagrams of some 3D maneuvers is available here:

Davo you got a point, I jumped straight to inverted circuits as I could do them on the sim instead of getting inverted hover sorted out first.

Thanks for all your replies guys, btw, would anyone recommend Russ Deakins book "Model Heli Aerobatics"?

Tks

I bought Russ's book. It goes into a lot of detail on set up, and maybe not so much on the out and out aeros side of things. It'll still give you a good grounding though, a good reference book.
Regards,
Ken.

Which way up is it now???
