Lesson 5: Figure 8 Hover

Lesson 5: Figure 8 Hover
 

Now that you are a hovering genius, try a figure 8 hover.

                   6           2
                  7         1/5        3
                       8           4
                          YOU  

If you can figure out the above diagram, give it a try. Go from 1/5 to 2, 3, 4, back to 1/5, 6, 7, 8, then start over at 1/5. Now while you are doing this you should be in a 3-5 foot hover, and the tail should always be pointing towards you.

This will give you practice moving around while hovering, or more towards the point, giving you the ability to land where you wish with class.

Once you get this down pat, you will be able to land so good that a pro will ask how did you do that?
