Requesting assistance with flying training for a mental block

Hi all,

I have posted this in another area of RCG but I have not hand any replies in that area as yet so thought I would post it here as well.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1431988

I would like any suggestions to help me train my mind when I am trying to fly an inverted circuit. I usually fly anti-clockwise, and I am right handed. ALWAYS in the far quadrant to my left, as I begin to make the turn inverted, I always seem to roll out of the turn.....help, suggestions please...what can I do to train myself to make that turn comfortably every time...

Sackie,

Try using as little control input as possible - try to use only as much as needed to guide the plane.

Other than that, keep practicing on the simulator and best luck getting past this minor hurdle.

Start the circle in that quadrant making sure that you are not putting in any extra rudder and the problem will evaporate in short order. Practice beginning the inverted circle in different quadrants of the circle.

This may not have anything to do with it, but what aircraft are you flying? I ask that because I have noted similar problems myself over the past few months as I have tried inverted flight for the first time. A few folks at the flying field have suggested that some planes will try to roll out of inverted flight more than others.
