your tail is about 2x too fast. slow it way down and work on half flips only. When you get those controlled and consistant then start working on multiple piros per flip.

thats pretty much what I do. my max piro rate is about 400 degrees per second. or about 7 or so seconds for 10 rotations (this is how I measure my real ones)

Here's a flight I did yesterday, not a particularly good one, doesn't have a lot of manoeuvres really, but I kinda like the 4 point tic-toc, it was one of the more decent ones I did lately.

Here's a few of my warmup flight that I do, religiously, before doing harder 3d's.

I don't show this, but I "always" start non-inverted, first. You don't want to see that part...boring.
Anyways, you should notice:
1.) I am doing 4x circuits.
a.) forward
b.) sideways nose-down funnel turns
c.) backwards am doing only CW turns
d.) sideways tail-down funnel turns

2.) Each circuit turns 4 times in CW direction, only!!!

This repetition of CW turning direction(even when changing heli orientation) make stick movement common/easy/instinctive. Try it yourself. You will find that the RUDDER direction is in the same for all 4x orientations. So, you really only need to concentrate on the right stick for elev/ail control on this drill. Next, I would do another 4x circuits, but with CCW turns.

This "E" pattern is my next warm-up. It requires you to "alternate" CW and CCW turns. So, don't try this until you've mastered the "T" pattern. You're thumbs must absolutely know exactly what to do when it comes time to turn.

slow down your tail, it's way too fast for me. Work on half piro flips. Start by, doing the piros first, then apply the flip, Practice on half flips, as the tail approaches you, then apply the flip with a stir, once the flip is done apply 1.5 small stir to center the disc. You may have too much expo on your cyclics. Try to show a video with stick movements, so that someone here will be able to point out your weak points. keep at it, and you will get there! Half flips first. good job. Any tips for nose in hover?

I have to make a comment, this is one intense heli bootcamp. I like it. Do you do this "everytime" before any 3D flights? Please posts more vids.

Here's mine... I've started working on piroflips shortly after RaZa's video was posted. I half piros and full piros down relatively well, but when I started working on the double piro flips, it became apparent that I needed to work on my stationary piros so I'd have better control.

Here's where I'm at so far...

same here. I'm working on my "slow" stationary piros for me that seems to be the foundation of piro manouvers. Once I master that, then I'll try to progress to circle piros, then inverted piros.

Here's another flight from me from yesterday. This time I've been practicing some half piroflips, not continous, not comfortable enough for that yet. There's also a new move (new as in new for me) I just started practicing, which is a wall with a quick half piro (followed by another half piro while pushing away). I botched one of those, resulted in an uncomfortable moment.

Nice flight Iron I am aspiring to that sort of flight ability at this time. I'm working on it. Your flight shows a fair amount of confidence, I do believe that is an important factor. Thanks for sharing

Thanks! I wish I were confident. Well in a way I guess I am, I fly very conservatively, only doing things that I am very comfortable with. But I think it slows my progress down.
