      To add to Alex's tips if you get a bend your not happy with dont keep working on it, as copper goes hard very quick. Stop and heat the pipe to red hot and let it cool before starting again.

      Eat-Drink-Smoke and be Happy.

      As you bend the pipe -- do it very slowly. Also pull
      on the end you are bending so there is constant
      tension (this keeps the pipe from collapsing). At any
      rate tight bent pipe does loses circular shape and
      becomes sort of ellipsoid in cross section, but it is
      OK -- keep trying... my personal record is "double
      helix" (meaning concentric two coils) fitting in 2"
      copper pipe.
