F-4D Skyray 2D recover test

Hello Everyone

My secondary testing on Sunday was aimed at using 2D mode as a "panic button" to recover from unusual attitudes.

After testing 3D direct rate, I flew in manual to get into a unusual attitude then moved in to 2D mode via a switch to perform a hands off recovery. (wanted to video see above post sorry no video)

I was able to perform hands off recoveries from these attitudes.

Inverted, inverted dive, inverted dive rolled 40 deg, vertical fast, vertical slow, dive rolled 30 deg. All recovered correctly and right away with minimum altitude loss.

The ability for the guardian to recover hands of is very impressive.
