Happy PBY flying.
Fokker DII, thats the first time I've heard that, do you use rudder towards the stalled wing? I would have thought to Ailerons to correct the stall

Wing loading being "heavy" or not is all relative to task

Use the rudder in the direction you need to correct to, i.e. fly level, just like you would with aileron, left wing drops use right rudder. In slow flight using aileron will aggravate the wing drop, low wing will stall sooner.

Nice.

We used to say "pull" the low wing up by stepping on opposite rudder.

Really? None of us ever suspected as much.

Next you'll be telling us that when a plane crashes it isn't always the planes fault?

Oh the shock of this!

scootrb4,

You are being funny and that is enjoyable.

Mind you there are many instances that the pilots blames the model instead of their own pilot's abilities. We read that often.

Perhaps I should say it "when a plane crashes it is not always the plane's fault" nor the radio. . In fact the majority of crashes is due to the pilot.

Hee! Hee! . . . have a great time flying and if you have a badluck blame whatever pleases you.

My crashes are pilot error.... even when I let my buddy upgrade my radio, the subsequent failure was my fault. THat's just the way I fly, Can't learn from somebody else's mistakes, never was that smart

Of course we cannot learn by somebody else's mistakes concerning piloting. I suspect you are a lot smarter then you say being an adept of warbirds.

Now _ _ _ what is considered high wing loading ? I have given my opinion earlier in the thread whatever that opinion is worth .
