The war on figure 8's

So 5 hours after mastering nose-out hovering, we're as successful at
nose-in hovering as marines in Iraque so let's try figure 8's instead.

In simulation, the figure 8 was the most useful maneuver for aerial
movies, but figure 8's require pointing the nose in. A kid once said to
hover nose in, push the cyclic under the lowest side of the rotor. That
proved disasterous when the nose wasn't exactly pointing nose-in. Look,
the only way 2 do this is to imagine yourself in the copter and practice
it until it's automatic.

Flight time measurements have shown the copter is using 7.3 amps.
