Man that was some great flying, and your Eco looks to have quite a fast climb rate. I also like that you were nice an smooth when you did your manuvers.
Oh and I saw that you purchased Aerofly Pro a few weeks back, I love mine and it has helped me with a lot of the aerobatic manuvers I do now. I need to stop slacking and get a vid up too
Keep up the good work.

I get about 6 minutes of safe aerobatics, and 1 minute of hovering.

I would recommend to get a simulator first (your helis and your wallet will thank you in the long run).
For setup, get +/-10 degrees of pitch. I'm not familiar with Aveox, but you should aim for at least 1700rpms with thrust bearings. A good heading hold gyro (does yours?) would be helpful so that you can concentrate on your inverted stuff without having to fiddle with keeping the tail straight. You'll need symmetrical FG or CF blades, alu swash, thrust bearings..
Carlo, I'm glad you liked the video. Yes the Aerofly Pro simulator has given me the confidence to bring my heli lower . I'm telling you in only 1 week of practice I saw tremendous improvement. My best purchase yet.
The climbing is good with my Eco8, but I'm dying to switch out my 18S for the 11L!! Hopefully it will elminate a little bit of bogging I get at the extremes.
Hey, I'd love to see some videfootage of yours, let me know whenever you post one. Later!
