Nice flying. It's hard to keep a tiny heli in place.

I was so excited when I finally 'stirred' my first piro-funnel tonight. I've been flying them (horribly) since I learned all my funnels about 2/3 months ago. I've been able to 'bump' them around for a while, but after two weeks of solid work I got a few going tonight with a proper piro-stir. Stirring is not quite 100% apparent in the video, but this is a moment for me. True 3D flying!

P.S. It is easy to record videos on the Mac using quicktime. Just go to File -> New Screen Recording
Here is a current progress video. It has now been 18 months since I did my first Piro-funnels and video (above). My memory of that video was that I was flying piro funnels, but now looking back I see they are shallow, shaky, and obviously un-practiced compared to how I want to fly them.

Now 18 months later I have learned a lot of new maneuvers (most of which you'll see in the following video), and I've consistently been working on my pirofunnels. It is truly amazing how much time it takes to really control such a complex movement. I've come a LONG way, but still feel like practice is warranted (especially in real life, where there is a lot more instability overall, inconsistency in the tail, wind, and nerves).

Enjoy: (Piro funnels at 2:05 for those with short attention spans)

That is some huge progress right there. Very nice controlled flying.
