I've noticed in doing loops that I usually end them with the nose pointing a little left of where I went in. This is regardless of whether I'm starting the loop from the left or the right. However, I haven't done any downwind loops - these have all been into the wind. Any comments on what you guys normally do to correct this? i.e. do you input right rudder somewhere in the loop? When? Do you input right aileron? When? Thing is, the rotor disk appears pretty much parallel to me the whole way through. I only notice the nose is left in the last quarter or even last eight of the loop. Any advice or thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken

You could also be inputting rudder without realising it when moving the collective.

Mine does that too (rap50). It's because the heli is rolling a little during the loop. Maybe it's a phase problem as I haven't noticed it that much during FFF.
