hey guys, i have been practicing these for a little while and have got to the point where i can do two full ones in one spot, but after watching some vids of other guys doing the, i see they are piroing to the right. I have spent all my time piroing to the left while flipping. Does it matter? Or should i retrain my stick movements

I feel its easier to pull my thumb to the left than to push to the right.

eventually you have to learn to do them in both directions, and reverse mid- manuever!

I am learning them, and piro to the left. Its less work for the heli that direction.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.

Most folk have a natural tendency to piro one way or the other, just like some are right handed or left handed. Ideally, you need to learn to piro both ways for completeness but it isn't easy (for most) piroing in a direction that doesn't feel natural.

The kaos or piro flip is normally moving stick to left because of torque of motor and you get a consistent tail spinning this way once you learn in this direction you practice other direction as said above but it is harder to have a consistent tail so hang on

No it really does not matter. But to piro right does require more power than to piro left because of the main rotor rotational torque. The heli naturally wants to piro to the left.

With good power and a good gyro, you'll never see/feel the difference.
