Good advice on practice.  Training flights are FUN!  Each maneuver is scalable.  Circularizing your flight, especially in tight regimes, is the toughest!  This is by courtesy of Scott Burgess, PhD, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and their small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) program.  Have fun, and to borrow from Scott Manley (youtube - DSnM), "Fly Safe!"

Basic maneuvers to practice to proficiency:
  1. Square flight pattern with aircraft heading away at all times
  2. Square flight pattern with aircraft facing toward at all times
  3. Square flight pattern with aircraft pointing into the square at all times
  4. Circle flight pattern around the square with the camera continuously pointing at the center at all times
