A maneuver where the aircraft describes a path through the air resembling that of the number eight. Much like circuits, with an RC helicopter a figure eight can be flown in a standard, nose-first pattern, with a constant heading, or even with flips and rolls along the path. It can be flown in upright, inverted, forward or reverse or any combination of these. One of the first aerobatic maneuvers most new pilots learn how to do, a flat, constant-heading figure eight helps develop finer control and tail management.
