rolling harrier dialed

so Im pretty stoked, I have the rolling harrier pretty dialed on the sim. Now real life will be a different story Im sure. A little more on the line in real life

I cant quite control which direction I want to go in yet. I pretty much only roll to the left right now so I know if I slow it down I can bring it around to the right....I think, or if I speed up my inputs I can bring it around to the left. Sound about right?

Which direction do you roll? I assume right. If so, you need to retard your timing a bit. Be careful though, as that's closely linked to the nose diving .

Im rolling to the left. I know it will just take more time to be able to control it left, right, straight etc. I was mostly just stoked to post that I can actually do it now days! haha.

My first time flying again (not on a sim) will be on my 89" slick. AHHH! Its been months since Ive really flown. Ive heard time and time again that the slick is a big 3D training machine.

If you want to turn right while rolling left, then speed up your input a bit.

Again, the key is to slow down your roll so you can "SEE" when your "CANOPY UP" moment is. Then time your elevator accordingly.

Hmm just to make sure we are on the same page cuz now im confused, when I say im rolling left I mean that I am holding my right stick (elevator, aileron stick) to the left. Thus rolling left correct?

I thought if you are rolling left and you speed things up you will turn left and if you slow things down you will turn to the right...

I must not be doing it right after all haha!

nope. You turn opposite your roll when your input is a bit early.

Have you watched Bone Docs harrier rolling clinics? They are what taught me how to harrier roll. If you havent watched them I highly recommend it
