The first 3D maneuver many pilots learn is the “elevator.” During an elevator, the airplane remains fully stalled and drops almost vertically in a flat attitude. Start by pointing the airplane directly into the wind. Cut the throttle and increase upelevator to enter a stall. At the moment the plane stalls, hold in...
Unfortunately it happens to even the best pilots and planes: an encounter with terra firma (or another aircraft) that doesn’t quite go as planned. RCScaleAirplanes compiled footage of 2016’s terrible crashes as well as some pretty heroic landing saves in this video. The Corsair saves at 3:40 and 4:20 are our...
