How many consecutive flips can be done w/Raptor50 ?
How many consecutive flips (forward/backward)can be realistically done without losing control?
On the simulator I can do it for a long time, but w/raptor 50 & 50 hyper it is different. How can that be changed?

Is it easier to do more with a bit of wind towards the nose?

You can do them for a full tank of full. The only thing limiting the helicopter is the person behind the sticks.

Like everyone has already said, it can do as many as YOU can. My record, on a 30 mind you, was 41 consecutive forward flips in one minute(buddy timed me). A 50 should be cake.

I'm guessing you mean it starts to wander off and tip over. You will find that if you aren't gentle with the pitch then the tail will kick round slightly each time as you bog the engine slightly. I find that if you try only to put correction inputs in at a set place then you brain can cope easier than trying to make corrections all the way round. When I do a blackflip I try to only make corrections when the heli is nose in inverted and then it's just a little stab of the stick in the right direction and all is good.

Good collective management is also the key

Yeah Drunk Monk that's part of it. Sometimes I'll stop or continue my routine then reset. On the sim I'm more comfortable and do as you mentioned and make small corrections.
With just a throttle setup my heli tends to bog, with the rev max it bogging isn't a problem, so those are some variables I deal with in trying to do lots of consecutive flips. My guess the same applies to consecutive rolls.

Sometimes, a better gyro helps a whole lot(if not already). Pitch management is also key.~~~~ Defy the laws of gravity....gracefully ~~~~

When I first start doing 3D I can only make like 5 in a row, then I needed to build RPM then go agene, now I can do all fuel tanks flipping.

This is funny, when you are learning new 3D stuff the power gap is reduced do to bad collective management, then when you learned the maneuver you have extra power.
Wished to be other wise but this is haw it works!!!!!!!!

I will suggest MPII it really help you, when needing that extra power.
Try to reduce the flipping rate joust a little bit.
Also you will be surprised when you learned the maneuver the little collective you are using.

But in resume, the problem is the collective management….
