Default Inverted Training Progression Help!

So Iíve been flying for a while and mastered upright hovering, forward flight, rolls, and loops. All orientations.

Now Iím working on inverted. I can hover inverted all orientations and hereís where Iím overwhelming myself.

Is there a progressive list of learning inverted flight, maybe certain moves before I move to another?

For example when a beginner starts out they learn:

Hovering tail in
Hovering Nose in
Hovering right side
Hovering left side
Forward flight
Figure 8ís
Etc etc

How does this apply to Inverted?

Thanks in advance

You have the right idea. It's the same progression as flying upright, just remember altitude is your friend.

I would start with nose in inverted.

On a Sim you can train your reflexes step by step, stick by stick, combining nick/roll or separating them.

Back in 2012 it helped me not trying to do all four stick movements all at once.
Let the flight trainer take over 1-2 functions in the beginning.

the problem is every time you add a 'new thing', you still have to keep practicing the 'old things'. by the time i got to inverted tail first circuits, I was spending entire flying seasons to an orientation.

don't worry, it all eventually clicks in to place. but, ya--it gets exponentially slower to add more orientation skills.
