With enough speed going in, yes.
But I would not really recommend it, as the main rotor is pulling the heli down at the top, so you will come out of the loop lower and it won't be a round circle.

Going to zero or slightly negative pitch will help it stay up and give you valuable experience with working the collective. Start using your negative collective...it is good for you.

Just set your "idle up 1" up and go for it!

You may do it without adding negative pitch, but make sure that when inverted you have 0 pitch otherwise you will be pulling the heli downwards and it will be the figure 9

But who am I? I can barely do FF yet

As far as they know, I already had it!

Yes. Do the loop really high with the ff into the wind. The heli will come out of the loop well below the point it entered the loop. It will form an "e" going from left to right. Good luck.

Are you not using any negative at low stick? How do transition from FF to hover? You can do nice loops with about 3 deg. negative. Start your loop by flying into the wind at FF with full collective pitch, pull slowly back on the elevator stick into a clime, gain altitude, then pull a little more on the elevator to pull it over the top, as you go inverted smoothly reduce the collective to about 2 or 3 deg. negative. As you start to pull out go to full collective pitch and ease off the elevator. Nut’n to it.

Good luck,
John
