I suggest the IMAC Basic 2019 sequence as a good way to get into precision aerobatics. You can download it from the IMAC web site: http://www.mini-iac.org/Downloads. The maneuvers are shown as Aresti symbols (same as used for full size aerobatic competition) that are described here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aresti_Catalog. The Basic 2019 is a sequence of classic maneuvers that are both simple to execute and difficult to execute well. I fly the Basic 2018 sequence at least twice (usually 3-4 times) every time I fly.

Simon it's like the plane was just being hung up there for me...  Amazing, I couldn't have done it without everyone's assistance.  ::)

Glad I could "give you hand" Bruce   ;D

This is a better Wikipedia page on Aresti symbols and the aerobatic maneuvers they represent than the one I cited in my previous post: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerobatic_maneuver
This page https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Competition_aerobatics describes full scale aerobatic competitions, in particular the aerobatic box that is also used in IMAC competitions and is part of a well-flown aerobatic sequence.

High alpha or 3D aerobatics are different from precision. Here the emphasis is making the airplane do wild and crazy things mostly close to the ground in a mostly stalled attitude, relying on the engine thrust alone to keep the airplane in the air. “Precision” in this case means “don’t crash” ;) Maneuvers have names such as “the wall”, “harrier roll”, “blender” and “elevator”. Here is a video of a Joe Nall 2019 noon demonstration by Jason Dussia that shows what I mean: .

@Crazyflyer Sorry that your assistance wasn't so evident.  It is going to be a difficult feat to duplicate.

(Let's try one more time.)

Observational skills - ZERO, 0, NADDA, NONE, ABSENT!  :P

Hey BRUCE of course we have observational skills. We admire you for your piloting. But then again considering you are a CFI we expect you to fly at least 4 of 3D airplanes at the same time. You have enough students assistance.  🤣😎👨‍✈️

@BrunoS As part of the morning crew, your father (Bruno senior) entertained us with his routine and 3D flying skills everyday he was out with us.  His smooth flying and precision control over his aircraft hasn't been duplicated by any of us.

I know you have tremendous skills in this area as well.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could come out and provide some group assistance and guidance if your time permits.  There is a lot of serious interests in this regard. (All kidding aside)

Thanks for sharing the posts above.  I look forward to seeing you at the field.

Thank you Bruce for your comments. I am by no means an expert aerobatics pilot. I’m still working on the IMAC Basic sequence. I have picked up some knowledge about the maneuvers in the IMAC sequences from serious competitors at the RC400 club. By serious I mean guys that travel 100s of km to IMAC contests in Ontario, Quebec and the U.S., compete at the Intermediate and Advanced levels and win.

I would be glad to help where I can. Please let me know when you all want to meet.

I'm Adding Reference links to the first Comment, documents, etc. that could help understanding aerobatics. please post interesting resources that you find and I will report them in the first comment so that everyone can find it easier.
