I've been flying for about 6 months and feel very comfortable with sport flying, fast forward, loops, rolls, dives, nose in, autos etc... I am just wondering how to start doing real 3d moves? And how long did it take you to start doing them?

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I'd suggest concentrate on learning inverted, backwards, inverted backwards then upright and inverted piro flight. Mix it up with tricks that interest you and take advantage of the basics you've mastered like tick tocks once you've got the inverted and backwards stuff down. Or tail in inverted funnels once you've got inverted backwards sorted. If you can piro well then the sky is the limit.

I've been at it for years and am only now sorting out inverted piro figures of eight and nice rainbows. But I've a young family and barely get one hours flying a week. If you can burn serious fuel and are very committed you could pass me in a year easy.

Do everything you can already do backwards, then inverted, then bacwards inverted.

I'm the same as u mate. I can do all the sporty stuff and i really enjoy being at this point.

However i'm (slowly!!!) looking to progress and have started doing as much sim work as i can on backwards and inverted flight and getting the thumbs right B4 learning the tricks.

Might work 4u2?

Good luck to both of us
