I'm looking to move up from sport flying to 3D. How do most of you guys move up? Primarily simulator? What are some maneuvers to start off with? Essentially, what is the best order of progression?

Sim-Fly-Crash (repeat until broke or doing 3D)

The half piro flip seems to be the gateway maneuver.

Make sure you can comfortably fly figure eights both forward, inverted, and inverted backwards (both directions) before moving on to this stuff, it will save you a lot of time if you got the fundamentals down.

I'll let others offer up sequences, but the essence is:
- all orientations, very well, upright and inverted. Fly around that way.
- Pirouette practice till sick. Upright, inverted, all over the place.

Some say practice both directions of piro and piro moves early, others advise against it.

Sim a ton; treat it as practice, not a video game.

oops, bounced it!

Yes! Stationary piros and inverted stationary piros, you gotta be able to hold the heli in one place. Seems impossible but it will eventually click. Start real slow then speed them up as your able to hold the position.

Also a lot of mental preparation.
I still don't have the gut to do it yet even though I have spent many hours on the sim.

Piros...For sure.

I might seem odd but I started the piros faster and to increase difficulty...slow them down.
Slower is harder and a slow controlled pirouette is the foundation for almost all 3D.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Totally agree with you.

Train the very basic
