One thing I noticed with spins to (with my planes) They always spin better one way than the other. If your still not getting a nice spin try the opposite direction.

Re: Flat Spins

By doing a hammer head and getting it to start to roll you are in the relme os a blender. As mentioned before Pull throttle back. add up elevator. My sback didnt like to stall in one direction or the other so I inputted a little rudder to induce the spin. As soon as the plan started to roll over in the stall add the up elevavator and full rudder. My edge I have to reduce the amount of up elevator in the spin a little or it will not flat spin properly. It does sound like you need to move the C of G back. You will find the plane will get more responsive on the elevator as the c of g is moved. Just add a little more EXPO and you should be good to go.

Mine too.
Better down, than up.
(that will mess Brent up, or down?)

Hope the weather co-operates today for you. Flying season is finally here in the Ag business.

Re: Flat Spins

I agree.

Some planes will also spin better inverted than upright. Can be a little more intimidating when starting to learn.

You can do the same slow stall entry, just make sure rudder goes to the correct side for the wing that tips.
Height is your friend. Can never have too much.

Exit is important. Over control on exit is common way to get in trouble. Better to let ail/elev stick centre, have slight pause to get wrong bearings, then apply some elev and power.

Good luck!

Re: Flat Spins

I live in a permanent state of confusion! I`m a farmer! LOL

Lots of new stuff to try, and a few things to look up. Anyone have a link to a video that show what a blender is. I`ve probably seen it done, just never knew what it was called. I need to find a RC pilot that talks to himself while he`s showing his talent.

Sure appreciate all the help.

Re: Flat Spins

A blender is basically just a straight downline with full aileron. Then you pop it into an inverted spin.

The is a huge section on Flying Giants on how to's

Re: Flat Spins

This summer I started playing with setting up all my planes to perfect neutral. I use the method of going inverted, if it stays level with no elevator input, I consider it neutral. I notice my flat spins and hanging on the prop are much nicer since I have been setting up my planes neutral.

BTW, I have the Redwing RC SBach 342. It is the best inverted flat spin plane I have. It flattens out completely and will do nice tight and slow spins with very little throttle pumping.

Re: Flat Spins

Its back to the drawing board for me, lost the S-Bach to a flat spin on Saturday. One thing I did learn is how much the price of ARFs has gone up in 16 months!

Guess I should invest is foamy trainer planes! Signing off, been real.

Re: Flat Spins

Don't feel so bad Brent

I was once teaching a very good pilot how to flat spin but he didn't quite get the concept of recovery, flat spun that Extra right into the ground. As his instructor I should have never let him do that so low, it was my Extra.
