The hammer head is a maneuver in which the aircraft plus up to a vertical line followed by a decrease in throttle and a large amount of rudder "kicking" the airplane around until another vertical line is achieved but this time the aircraft is pointed to the the ground. The stick movements are: Elevator stick back (climb) Throttle decrease and instantly use full right or left rudder(descend) Pull out with more elevator. You can add aileron rolls and snap rolls on the up and down lines to "spice up" the hammerhead.

Its been about a week since the release of this model for phoenix and I now have enough flight time to share my opinion. Before I get to talking about the flying I need to say what the optimal tune is (for my flying style). Add a LOT of expo on the sim (not your radio). Second is the roll rate, I found turning this down by 25% worked well. Once I made those changes it did everything I wanted it to. Rolling harriers require no elevator and flat spins require very little aileron. It is fantastically stable in a hover and high-alpha maneuvers. Keep in mind that all of what I am talking about is for a simulator and not the real kit.

The loop is one of the simplest maneuvers you can do with a sport aircraft. Basically you pull back on the elevator and let the model climb until it is upside down. At this point you slightly lower the throttle and the model should start to descend. If this maneuver is done correctly you should end your loop right where you started it.
