It can be done in regular mode without negative pitch but you gatta be pretty high up and get alot of forward speed and you will lose some altitude. The safest way is to do it is in idle-up and give a smidgeon of negative pitch at the top of the loop.

A loop is quite simple. The easiest way In my opinion would be in idle up and up fairly high for you first attempts. Also some zero pitch or even some negative at top will help you maintain altitude. From the sounds of your flying should be quite uneventful other than nerves. The struggle will be landing after the loop, as your adrenaline will be spiking quite high if your like most of us. Good luck and let us know how things go.

Enter the loop as you would a plane. Carry some speed pull up and when you get inverted reduce the pitch to zero.

Hold the leevator until you get to like 3:00 and feed in some pos pitch and fly out of it.

The worst you an do is practice your #9 manuver.

Just a thought here, but maybe your trying to BIG of a loop and losing forward momentum because of it. Maybe try the loop with a little more elevator to shorten the loop, and try getting some good speed worked up going into the loop, should help. Have you tryed doing some stall turns to get yourself setup for the loop? Those may help some and calm the nerves a bit as well. Good luck, and keep us posted......you can do it

i tryed a loop again,no vid, but anyways same thing , i had lots of forward speed got to about 12:00 i tryed a little - 0 then it like just hung there like a upside down hover for a sec , then went sideways and slide to the ground, just before ,it impacted i got it on one skid,it slammed, next time i'll try to hover upside down too,, i think im getten it though, needs to be more of a circle,

Its not like a plane, a plane pulls forward all the way through the loop, big loop works very nice with plane. With heli, don't give full throttle while going forward, get a little forward speed then nudge the throttle just as you pull back the elevator, this gives you a little lift to help you flip over, reverse your blades to do the same thing, gives a little umph to flip on over the top.

Good luck
