I finally did my very first perfect loop today with my Mini Titan. The second attempt was not so fortunate. The heli did the loop but didn't make it and crashed nose first. Do you have to be in idle up for a simple aerobatic manuver like this one say like +10-10. My pitch was set up +10 and -3.5 with a linear throttle curve. I'm scared to try again now. Is it easier with idle up?? ANy suggestions, thnx!

You don't need -10 pitch but it is good to have at least a few degrees.

I think if you're starting into loops you should just run +/-10 in idle-up from now on. When you enter the loop you should be giving positive pitch until 3/4 of the way up and then as you get inverted you can give just a little bit of negative, as you start to come down you will want to start adding positive pitch again, you should be pretty much back to your starting pitch when you're past vertical (on the way down) and beginning to level off.

Do not let up on the elevator until the loop is almost over and you begin to level off. Good luck.
