A loop is an extended traveling elevator flip where the helicopter gains (or loses) height as it transitions to inverted, and then loses (or gains) height as the helicopter transitions back to upright.


  • Loops work best with a reasonable amount of speed.
  • It can help to start climbing before starting the loop proper.
  • Be gentle with the cyclic. Yanking it back will most likely just flip the helicopter, and unless you are fast reducing the collective you may lose a lot of height.
  • Depending on the speed of the helicopter and the speed of the loop, you may need no, a little or a lot of negative collective pitch during the inverted segment of the loop.
  • Loops can be performed forwards, backwards, sideways, or even pirouetting if your tail system is strong enough.
