By chance, I found a new 3D manoeuvre: The Rohlmann. You can see it between 0.20 and 0.40 in the video. It is done like this: half throttle, full rudder and a touch of opposite aileron. Sometimes it develops to a kind of upward flat spin.
plane is my new Trottel, 60cm, 20g, KFm4 wing.

A practical experiment: same model, same structure, same equipment, different material.
One Jupiter Scout made of Balsa , one made of depron. Both fly great. Weight difference about 45g. Balsa 210g, depron 165g. It will be a free download plan with detailed comparison oft both versions on Modell-Aviator.de.
