I enter a loop in much the same way as this, with as much speed as possible - I love seeing it shoot up skywards nose first I pull back just slightly on the cyclic, and leave the stick in that position throughout, and just concentrate on the collective stick. Up until the 8 o' clock position I would be on full throttle, then gradually throttle back to around mid-stick as it goes through the top, then slowly start to throttle back up to be at around full by the time it gets to 4 or 5 o' clock, which is where I push the cyclic stick forward again.
There's 1 or 2 loops in my Blade 400 vid here:

I do it JUST like Dusty. More speed gives you bigger loops and is IMO easier. The first mistake I see people do is NOT give enough speed. Unlike an airplane, you have nothing to pull you through the loop. How fast you enter defines how big you can make it.
The second thing I see people make mistakes is not starting back onto the positive collective soon enough and the loop looks like a 9 (flying from right to left) where they come out lower than they started. Not jumping back onto the positive soon enough can also stall the blades as you come back over and are then all the sudden in a panic and hitting full pitch and full collective to pull up.

Doing a little flip at the top of a stall turn thingie, is not a bad way to get started. But in a loop, I don't think I put much if not ANY negative at the top if I have the speed and I'm doing it right. Once I was putting a bunch of negative at the top and in the transition, the heli was slowing down and the tail was flopping out on me making the loop look like a mess. Keeping the speed up, keeps the tail weathervaning if your gyro is not really good.

Big loops or small loops are essentially done in the same manner. You must maintain momentum to perform smooth loops.

I will explain my loop going from right to left.

I like to go full speed to initiate my big loop. To begin the loop I will add a little collective and pull back on the stick slightly. I will hold the position as the heli climbs and becomes completely vertical. Once the heli gets in the 12-2 o'clock range I will add more collective. This helps maintain speed as the heli goes inverted. From 2-3 o'clock I decrease collective until it's at 0 degrees when the heli is completely inverted. My elevator position has not changed since I initiated the loop. Once the heli reaches 7 o'clock I begin adding collective slowly. If you add too much collective too early you can risk shooting the heli straight into the ground. The heli should pick up enough speed and just pull the heli horizontal again.

Essentially when I initiate the loop by pulling back on the stick I maintain that cyclic input throughout the whole maneuver. Only thing I change is amount of collective.

Just practice it on the sim.

Here is a video of me doing a big loop (6min 20sec)

Nice loops guys! I want in too...

I did my first two loops last weekend with my E550! Only my 4th day flying it to boot. That's why the flying looks rough. I just got into Helis after X-Mas... I strapped my BlackBerry to the back of my heli with a velcro strap, and a rubber band...

While in Idle Up 1, tried to keep up the momentum by doing it at the end of the runway, pulled back on the stick like normal but held it, when inverted I applied negative collectiveto keep up the altidude reduced it as it pointed to 6, applied positive collective to finish off the loop. I'm not saying this is the right way, just what I did...

How do you imbed the your tube here? I added the URL to the "YT" button... Is it because I'm new here, with my low post count?
