Tried my first inverted autos today talk about fun. I only had one that was successful, the rest I bailed out because I didn't feel comfortable. I need to learn to preserve headspeed!

I can do them on the sim no problem, this was in "real" life.

Did my first couple with my 600 two weeks ago. They sure do give a rush! Feels sooooooooo good when you can finally do it too! I waited patiently all this time.. and it's finally starting to pay off

You might be doing what I was doing.

When I learned on the sim, I would just time it so I would roll as I moved from positive to negative nice and even crossing through 0 pitch just as the heli was sideways.

The problem with that approach was that in real life the head speed would fall off during the roll and the whole maneuver took 50 feet of altitude. Definitely one of those maneuvers

I had one of the local pros look over my shoulder and he explained that you need to flare then roll. He was correct. I have learned to flare roll at 0 pitch then drop the stick slightly and bring it on in. This approach stops the heli falling as it rolls and pushes forward speed into the heli right before the roll.

Give it a try.

i did an inverted auto last week and landed upside down does that count? i was flying upside down and my elevator servos stripped or just froze so i froze and forgot to roll it (deeh deeh deeh) and i tossed the old throttle hold on and can down to the ground inverted and at the last second went full neg to soften the blow.... just bent my main and spindle everything else was perfect!
lucky bastard..... dumb one but lucky

only you have the power to make no difference!

I got good at them by only flipping or rolloing out when I had the collective at very close to zero. This helps because total pitch is what gives angle of attack, angle of attack is what creates induced drag, and total pitch=collective plus cyclic. Since high Angles of attack have exponentially higher drag, combining collective and cyclic inputs will "put the brakes" on your rotor, and the RPM will decay very rapidly. To make things worse, the heli will sometimes start to fall out of the sky on its side, where the oncoming airflow doesnt even go through the disk. THose are tough to recover from, and I have lots of broken bits to prove it. THey are fun though, keep doing 'em!

I was waiting for a flip at the end and thought "Hmm the head speed is kinda low.."

I then saw the cheap mavrikk blades for scraping. But still.. major balls.
