I'd like to start learning tictocs.
i've seen vids that show the stick inputs.

It all happens so quick and hard to pick up.

What's the best way to learn? Are there any simpler moves that I can build on and gradually work up to a full tictoc?

You can practice by doing slow rainbows.

the timing is the key,plus you just can't jam the collective.rainbows are a perfect way to learn.start out slow then when you get the feel of things,gradually speed up.IMO I felt that aileron tic tocs were easier to learn.

it's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission

it's like throwing a ball between your hands... throw and catch etc etc. Key thing is to advance your collective and be smooth about it. There are lots of styles of tictocs but if you can acheive a stationary TR in nose up then you are getting alot right.

I'll practise rainbows then in the Sim.
Not sure what a rainbow is, but I imagine it's a large tictoc!

Start with a upright hover - half vertical circle - inverted hover in left to right orientation.
The important thing to learn here is the cyclic input. Since it is a half circle, tail boom should always point to the center of the circle much like the wiper blade pivot.

Once you can produce controlled arc, then instead of stopping at level, try to stop at gradually higher angle. At this angle, you have to line up the boom to center and also stop angle so the heli will stop momentarily without sliding (aileron control) or drop (elevator control).

Once you master that, you should be able to handle tic-toc of any acute angle.
