I3DM - They may not seem hard to a guy who has been flying as long as you have or are as comfortable in any orientation as you are. However, to people just getting in the hobby or trying to pick up additional orientations or flight modes (backwards inverted for example), these things are invaluable. I'm no top notch 3D guy by any stretch, but I can honestly say "T" practice helped me learn all my orientations plus being comfortable in FF, backward flight, inverted FF and inverted backwards. Even as I learn new things, I continue to practice these as you can never have enough practice with "the basics".

I have seen plenty hot shot heli and fixed wing pilots that can do some great 3D, and laugh at someone saying a loop is hard. Then they get up there and fly the ugliest egg you ever saw. Lotsa folks out there bang sticks together to see what happens, and make fun of someone spending hours perfecting a basic maneuver like a loop.

Fundementals of precision and finesse are more impressive to me than erratic stick yanking. Of course, I enjoy letting loose on the sticks myself, on occasion. That's part of having fun. Just don't knock someone taking the time to learn the fundementals of attitude flying.

Well, it looks like a T, and Dokey already said how to do it, or at least one of the hundreds of ways it can be done

Once you master the T,
you go further for

The square
Nose-in tail-in fig8
Triangle

And then (medium F3C)
Square with piro halfway
Triangle with piro on top
Fig8 with piro at corners

And then (top F3C)
square with ascending and descending pirouette (F3C figure). Reverse pirouetting direction during descend
Triangle with pirouetting ascend and descend. Also reverse direction
pirouetting fig8
