    Well never seen this thread it looks like I have been missing out. Great thread hope it helps my 3D flying need all the help I can get.

    Maybe someone could help me figure out the name of this move...

    Level flight, pull 45 upline, quarter roll (to knife edge), rudder input at the crest to create a 45 downline, quarter roll to inverted, push to level flight (on the deck!).

    Usually a down on the deck, real crowd pleaser that I've been working on :) lots of precision and fun!

    Ok I have a question and need help. Hope I can describe it properly. The question is why does one do it and the other not and why.
    Description, flying along at about 1/4 throttle, straight and level. Pull up full elevator and the the plane almost rotates around the wing tube or makes very small loops. The second plane same kind of plane also a 3D machine same setup on the elevator I mean angle. When flying along at 1/4 throttle, pull full up elevator the rotates about 100 degrees and then just stalls. WHY. What needs to bone and changed to the second plane to make do very small tight loops.

    The Vortex maneuver
    Daniel Holman debuted this in 2013 and it's still a nice maneuver


    Any guidance on this from anyone?

    Take care

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Ah yes...The Vortex. It has become quite common these days. You see that particular maneuver tossed in with lots of other high energy aerobatics. I like to watch people when they are really good and they mix it in on a routine with lots of other really cool maneuvers. The key to this (in my opinion) is a really light aircraft with lots of power and lots of rudder and elevator action. I have tried this many times with my older heavier airframes, but just can not quite get there like this. Supa-Tim and The Big Kahuna and many others are quite amazing to watch when they toss this in their little antic filled flights.

    Like the manoeuvre will have to try this spring if only I can remember it from today.
