Should do a search, there's a website somewhere that explains them all in great detail. I used to have it bookmarked, but alas I'm at work.

Deathspiral, is an interesting one. You go up high, roll the heli 90 degrees, so it's in knifeedge attitude (blades are perpendicular to the ground). At this point it falls quite fast, crank back the elevator so it's starts flipping as it's going towards the ground. Then simply roll out before it's too late. The name comes from two parts, first the spiral motion. And second, if you apply the wrong collective when you roll out (i.e. positive when you're inverted), it's certain death for the heli!

Tricks? Let's call them manuevers. It gives us a little more credibility.
