When I screw up at a contest, I call it "entertainment". I usually do at least one "pucker" landing per event. You should have seen the one I did last weekend . It definitely got everyone's attention.

Come on out and play.

Re: Snaps defined

Lol, yeah, just can't do it. I have to feel comfortable with the sequence, which means stick time. I'll try. We have to get Rees out for practice before the Worlds, so I'll work with him to get both of us practiced!

Re: Snaps defined

Could someone please clarify what I just observed. One of my planes positive snaps fine rolling right, and a bit better left. However, a negative snap is just plain ugly rolling right, and clean rolling left. Is this common?

I don't think I was sloppy on the sticks. Plane was trimmed.

Re: Snaps defined

Hi Brent,
yes, it's an issue on some airplanes. There might not be the same travel on your rudder from right to left. Also check for servo blowback on your surfaces- shows up at higher speeds.
My Carden snaps faster left positive than it does right negative, so I have to make slight travel adjustments to balance the roll rates.
