Who was it?

Who is the first person that EVER successfully flew a helicopter aerobatically, or the "Grandfather-of-3D"? I'm talking about the style of flying you generally see today, who brought that whole thing to light? How did he/she know it could even be done? The whole idea of doing something like that? And no, I'm not knocking it at all, I watch those videos in amazement, I know I'll probably NEVER have the skills it takes to fly like that, but who was first?

I have seen some old photo's of inverted flight. I doubt a single person could be singled out, since so many developed individual tricks. And at that time information was not as readily available as today, so the ones that perfected the tricks first might not have even been heard of.
