ok today i've practice upsidedown flight!
go up to the azimuth than 180° trying to going down in line... ahahha!!! kind of "tail of the dragon"...
trying to hoover upsidedown ahahahha!!! need a LOT of pratice...
did you guys get ajusted (black~buttom~last knot) (red~top~four knot)
it was windy today so i mount 3 wrap + 2 wrap rods
with 3wrap = butter knife but with combine 3 wrap and 2 wrap kind of scalpel(surgery knife)!!! love the feeling!

the balance point between up and down in upsidedown position for me seems to be a hard thing to catch... :kid_brooding:

any trick?

High

It took me a while to be able to be able to maintain an inverted hover, but it's definitely one of those "Eureka!" moments when you finally crack it. It's all about moving from conscious thought into that "walking and chewing gum” part of the brain.

Follow the link below and see what I have written there for another newbie (it was a while ago but it's still relevant), I think he was probably more of a novice than you are but I was defiantly thinking of my quest for the illusive “Inverted Hover” when I wrote it.

Hope it helps.

because when you're inverted there's a twist in the line... my brain add to understand than detail... :blue_wink:

Good advice and a nice analogy in that link! Things I need to keep in mind...

I've done inverted hovers, but purely by accident. :?

Thanks, I must admit I was a bit nervous when I first posted it on FA, I was really expecting my mates to extract the yellow stuff.

The inverted hover is deffinately a trickey one, but once you get it down, it's like a piece of cake. try not to even think about the lines being twisted, it makes no difference. just worry about tapping your brakes to keep it stable.

well i'am not so bad...
if i could say there's a trick to understand fast
  • first go up the window
  • 180° to going down
  • before hit the ground pull full brake
  • maintain that position
  • 180° against
  • then go up the windows
try 180° right and left side to go down... it seams to be the best exercice to learn hoover upsidedown!
