You might want to try cleaning the servo first before buying a new one.

Oh yes guy's I pulled off about 10 inverted flatspins woo hoo but have no clue how to do the right way up spins haha I tried going in inverted all sorts but it just does its thing and flattens out inverted! Yeah it is cooler but also more likely to go wrong for me anyway! How do I do the boomerang you guys where talking about?

Trust me though, it's really not easy... I know many tried, but there's only a few % that could do it, even if there's a few way to do it. But, it's totally worth it.

Thanks so you can't buy the whole servo anymore? I replaced the big gear and now its working fine or seems to be on the bench .

don't feel bad it took me about 3 flights to remember how to do it i used to be able to nail it about every try

its not all that hard there are a few ways it seems of doing it right, I finally figured it out after a few flights and just moving sticks around..

for me the easiest thing is to go up high. go full up, full right rudder and aileron to the right. chop power... as the plane starts to spin down, quickley go full down and left aileron and then as it starts the flat boomarang hold the right rudder still and left aileron and go full up elevator... OMG i forgot how fast this thing will spin...

I was doing these over and over the other day. sooo much fun to land it like that walk over pick it up toss back into the air and do it again

It sounds so easy but it is easy to get lost on the descriptions lol so do I get into a boomerang from a flat spin? or do I have the plane coming back straight to earth spinning like a drill bit rudder right aileron right then crank it rudder left?

I just fly up on about a 45 Degree angle or straight up. then cut power and do the snap/spin. i let it fall down for maybe one or two spins then i go the opposite controls to get into the flat spin. I am always up as high as i can get. gives you more time to try it.. if you don't get it right try a different way on the sticks.
as far as upright or inverted, mine were all inverted mostly. I got a couple upright by luck. by going into the start different way.
BTW i was on low elevator and high rate aileron rudder.

I was maybe doing my flatspins wrong then? all I need to do is throttle off left stick right bottom corner and right stick top left corner and it goes a bit weird and then ends up inverted and spinning? will it be a better spin if I go both in the same direction first and then switch rudder? I will get out soon I hope and practice but we got rain and wind till the weekend

I had totally forgot that I bought another UM Stryker when HH made the stupid decision to discontinue this model. Probably their most fun UMX.

Found my purchase when I moved a few weeks ago.

Wahoo!!!
