First avalanche

Woo hoo ! ! ! !

Finally figured out the timing, and it worked out perfect.

Did it two more time to make sure it wasn't an accident .

My legs are still shaking, though.

I get like that every time a do a new maneuver.

An avalanche is a half-loop follwed by a snap-roll at the top.

The difficulty is trying to get the timing right at the top of the loop so that you exit the snap in the same direction you entered it.

Do a half-loop cutting power as you approach the top, and then bury both sticks to the lower left.

yeah, avalanches are fun, but if you want a little more challenging (ok, alot) trick, try diamond loops. be straight and level, pull to a 45 upline, full roll, pull 90* to the inverted up at a 45 (if your plane is underpowered, this is where you will know it), pull 90 * to the 45 inverted downline, roll, pull 90* to the rightside up 45 down line, then when you are to the point that you started at, pull to straight and level. Pretty challenging the first few times, but if done correctly, it is one of the most beautifull precision aerobatic tricks.

Want challenging, try a rolling loop! I can do that one, but it is pretty durned sloppy! With full aileron and alternating rudder and elevator, it really slows down near the top as well!

Mine are on the sloppy side as well, getting better thanks to AeroFly Pro though. That last downards section really sorts the boys from the men when flying in reality.

I saw Christophe Paysant Le Roux perform earlier in the year in dreadful conditions and he made it look so so easy, single roll, perfect circle finishing exactly where he started.

Yah, makes ya sick at how good some people can be at that kind of stuff. I will hopefully get there someday.......

I agree on the last part of rolling loops, on a lot (but getting fewer.... probably only on 1/8 or so) I have bailed out and just pulled out normal. The top is hard too, mine end up looking like a giant egg
