Hi Jim,

the heli is flown around the loop using collective for vertical and cyclic for the shape.

LOL I don't know if I should take you "funny, sarcastic or serious" LOL,,, I know the collective is used for vertical and the cyclic for the shape, but how do you start a 50 loop from a dead hover with NO forward momentum??

What the Wasp means is in the hover push nose forward and add some collective, then add more cyclic and collective to get a nice round shape. Then reverse the first half for the second half.

Collective to gain the height cyclic to shape it properly.
