the stock wing has some incidence built into it, reflex artificially removes that as you are effectively lowering the angle of attack of the wing. Less lift being produced, less drag. When you bank, and then yank, you dont want reflex anymore as turning is much more efficient with the higher angle of attack, so snap flap does that.

Its used more on gliders than anything, stuff like F3F, when normally snap flap drops the TE below the nominal point, but since the voodoo has a higher AOA out of the box just returning the wing to "stock" works perfect as its setup to turn on a dime anyway.

The incidence is perfectly fine for most speeds, and the voodoos will out turn near on anything, remember it was designed for a brushed 400 motor!

Did an other 4 flights

Man this is so much fun and so scary at the same time.

Just need to fly it a lot more to get some real confidence i would say, but with only 3min. flight time it will take a lot more flights before i will fly inverted 3Ft above the field

i really can't believe you guy's are pushing it even faster then it is a already on the "stock Höllein" setup. Respect!!
