Looking at the list of maneuvers, you will notice they are pretty simple, consisting of three hover maneuvers, a figure M, an ellipse and an inverted triangle. All of the maneuvers are described in the AMA rules (see 29.1.1 for the Figure M). The ellipse and inverted triangle are very similar and straightforward.
