That's not really a 'proper' flip though as a flip is supposed to rotate on the spot. To do a flip properly you have to vary cyclic as the heli rotates. When upright you have positive cyclic, when vertical you have the blades feathered and when inverted you have negative.
It's not hard really but a big heli rotates slower which makes it easier, as does altitude if you get it wrong. You need the reactions on a mongoose to fly the micros.
