Pretty nice flying

Post  rsv1cox on Thu Oct 09, 2014 5:03 pm

and a beautiful airplane too.

Four minutes holding a .60 back must be an experience but this fellow does a great job. Get dizzy, just do multiple loops.

That was one sharp looking pattern. I spent all day today trying to make mine look like that.

WOW!.. That was the best "filming" of a pattern that I've ever seen!! You can see the model and also the pilot's handle inputs..  That's a video than any aspiring C/L stunt pilot should watch several times. I'd like to know where/how the camera was mounted. Thanks for posting! Thumbs Up

Pattern was good! Engine run was awesome!

The latter can make or break a pattern.

Yes, Loops, Square loops? S'es, Inverted, and some that I don't recognize, I never did get into pattern.

 It's the earth deifying dives with low recoveries that got me.  Might have lasted well over four minutes as there were several edits involved.

Edit add: Figuring that I would never learn any younger I looked it up.

The engine was running nice n steady 8,300 to 8,500 rpm. I like the landing very light wing loading floated in. Thumbs Up

Those are the shapes. The entry and exit points are confusing in that illustration. The modern pattern also has six inverted laps between the inside and outside loops. That was definitely an expert pilot. I can't come close to the low flat pullouts he was making, those were a thing of beauty. It's fun to learn and work at. Not so exciting for spectators. Combat is by far the most thrilling thing to watch.

EDIT: here's the modern pattern. I can't find it with all the pictures on one page, but this one is easy to understand.
