Default New Aerobatic Maneuver????

Not sure but I might have came up with a new Maneuver trick. Not sure. Anyway fooling around today with my Visionaire today trying to learn some 3D maneuvers. I was working on Flat Spins and doing the pretty darn good. Then by chance I stumbled onto the right combination of rudder, ailerons, and elevator to put the plane in a perfect LEVEL spin. I could control the altitude with throttle. I can go up, hover, down slowly and I am pretty sure although I did not dare land. It had that much control.

Flying field was very busy today with some IMAC pilots training for upcoming event, regulars stopped and watched and said they seen anything like it before, or at least to that degree.

They asked my what I called that and I replied: Chasing Tail.

Now the real trick will be to see if you can do it again, and again etc.

I've done some stunts that I have not figured out how to do again.

Yeah, some planes can actually climb in a flat spin. It's nothing new really but only models with very light wing loading, lots of control authority and high thrust can do it.

Here's Michael Wargo showing how it's done, including landing from the spin and a climbing flat spin in a brief clip at the end.

Yes I can. did it several times yesterday and even came home and repeated on simulator with same plane model.

It is actually pretty easy to do, at least for me on this plane set in 3D mode. Full left rudder, full right aileron, throttle between 60 to 90%, and back pressure on the elevator. All the control is in the throttle and elevator leaving the rudder and ailerons glued in opposite directions.

Mine is a little different. I did not invert the plane upside down.


What is ironic is I cannot do a Harrier or hang on the prop yet! Still working on it.

Wow! I was doing a variation of that inverted flat spin with my Vapor. I'll have to get it going again and try climbing with it. I was doing it at low power or power off. Looks awesome on the profile 3D plane!
