Anything about how to fly?

Just about every thread on this forum is on a specific ship; not that there is anything wrong with that. But, is there any where for an intro on 3D flying?

I'm flying a couple sport planes now but will like build a 34" foam 3D plane next. I'd like to learn a little bit about what to do with the sticks.

Like, when you see a video of someone flying in a cycle while doing continuous rolls, they must be doing something with the elevator and/or rudder to both keep the circle and keep the nose up. Explanations on what to do to start learning would be cool.

yup, rolling circles involve everything. there are two sticky threads at the top of the 3D forum that have links to video instruction...

Yes, those two sources are fantastic. Do them both. There is a lot of great detail in the book that will take you hours to figure out digging through threads, or 3 minutes in the book.

Yes, get the book. It will protect you from years of myth, uninformed opinion and endless spirited dicussions in the threads.
