How do you do these roll overs?

Sebart Katana S 120 (4 min 58 sec)


at the 1:00 mark he does these cool roll overs, I dunno what they are called but they are cool. I sorta tried on my 3dhs 47" katana but it just wasn't the same. Is my plane just too small to do something like that?

deep lazy snaps with lots of rudder to get the sideways movement and easing off of the inputs once the snap has started

I tried. It does it, but its much faster on my 47", I want it to be more lazy, I'd need a bigger plane right?

bigger plane will help... but to make it lazy it will be a balance of speed attitude and input... if you did it from an almost harrier, you'll get a much lazier response, using less ailerons will also barrel it out more.

I did do it in a harrier, against the wind, practically hovering, I tried everything, it always came out faster than the video. I guess a bigger plane is required.

Ohhh, I might have used too much ailerons to get it to turn over, maybe thats it. More rudder maybe.

Well then I guess my slick just might do that then. If the rain stops I am going to try that!
