Hovering piros really helped. This made me comfortable in all orientations without thinking which made my flying much more smooth.

2nd was backwards inverted. This has really helped smooth my transitions and made me much more comfortable when trying new tricks since I can exit maneuvers in any orientation.

Piro Modius
Although it took me a season to master, when I was truely ready to start learning it, my flying went to a level I never thought possible. Transitions to and from any move becomes effortless. And saving/preventing crashes does too!!! Mastering this move becomes the ultimate bailout switch! And it looks cool!

I'll never forget that day, believe-you-me. Not the eighties, July 1991

Piro funnels. It's easy to start as the linking of four orientation funnels, then when you link them together you get a click for flying the disk.

oops, bounced it!

I can still remeber my first loop with TREX 450. My heart was pounding. I am so excited and go home tell my wife.... I can do it.
Next milestone : Inverted hovering.

Slow piros was a big step for me early this season.

Backwards inverted is my biggest milestone though.
I'm working on the sim now to do a half mobius loop into a backwards inverted hurricane.

Can't wait for Spring and the next big step.

The one thing that opened up a new world to me was rainbows. Now I am practicing inverted forward flight. I have no issues hovering in all orientations inverted now which is great. It's just getting my nerve up to fly backwards inverted. I don't know why but on the sim flying inverted backwards is very easy but when I get to the field it's a different story. If I could only figure out how to have the same abilities at the field as I do on the sim life would be grand This is my first summer where I have taken flying serious (been flying for two years now) and I'm real happy to be at the level I am at.

4 point tic tocs and 4 point clockwise hurricanes did it for me.
That led to pyro funnels, pyro 8, true pyro flips and pyro tic tocs.
But way way way before that, ... flying figure eights forward, backward, upright, and inverted.
Now working the same list in the other direction, which would probably take me another 8 years.

These have been the biggest milestones for me. It seems that learning one thing has led to the next. Most have been from this year. I hope I can keep up the pace into the new year.

Nose in
Hover inverted tail in
Backwards
Front flip
Half piroflip
Mobious loops
Inverted backwards
Inverted forwards
Tail down Funnels
Hurricanes
Counterclockwise piro circuits
Full piroflips (still messy)

For me, it was learning to fly far and away from myself. At first I was petrified to see the heli get away from me for more than about 50 ft. Then, during my first lesson with Todd Bennett, he took me to the "edge of the stratosphere", and said, "ok, now fly around!" I was terrorized! , but I learned to fly around and soon could recognize every orientation. What a rush it was!

So, suddenly, in one day, I could really fly around!

Thank you Todd!

My little trick
One day it dawned on me that pushing up on the elevator stick moved the nose toward the skids and vice versa regardless of orientation and it made everything easier. Inverted, right side up, pointing straight down, whatever!
