I was having fun Sunday afternoon at Cale10's club field. Was nailing KE spins and started playing with throttle. Tumble into it, get on the throttle and get it perpendicular to the ground, nice and straight, then back off throttle some and it will fall like a rock! Still doing a KE Spin but free-falling more. Was cool to see but not much time before you need to bail.
Ground was coming up fast that way. Just kicked it into an Inverted Flat spin and flew out inverted.
It is still my most Rockin Plane!
Last flight, went into an outside KE turn, real wide out over the field, came in full throttle and pushed to inverted in close, my side of centerline of the field, right into a punishing PopTop!
Man I thought if there was ever a time for the battery to come right out of the canopy and hit me, that was it!
Was looking right inside it on the entrance. Lots of negative G's at that instance. Tumbled/Spun around about 4 times, add a little power and flew it out and away. You could hear the wind whooshing when it was flipping. Was cool but a little scary... Since I didn't hear any Crack!, it was good.
I'm going to replace the dual Batt Straps just to be safe, in case I do that again soon.
Just not as grippy as before.
