Thanks. I've really been working on them. I could barely do them when I first got my CY. Now I'm working on transitioning between straight rollers and turning rollers.

Because of the insane roll rate of the CY, it makes it a perfect tool for practicing rollers.

Yep, any other plane you fly feels like it is rolling in slow motion!

Absolutely! It makes my 51" Slick feel slow... And that's a good thing.

ahmen. I can tell you that it makes a world of a difference to mount your battery on the centerline.

Turnerm,
Great flying! Love the videos.
Are you just using elevator during those rollers?

No. Using both rudder and elevator. Just very small movements to keep the rollers fast. I hit elevator pretty hard if I want to turn sharp but otherwise it's all small movements.

Hey all! What's the next step under the Hitecs as far as servos go? I may just go that route but was wondering if there was something a little cheaper that has worked well for others. Like say, $15 per servo?

Are you pinning the aileron stick full deflection? Using 100% throw or dual rates on the ailerons?

Full roll on my yak is too fast to keep up with so I'm trying to decide whether or not to learn how to hold half or 3/4 stick aileron or use dual rates to allow full aileron stick deflection (and maybe 60% aileron control surface throw)

Full aileron and high rates (as high as they'll go - I think I even have my end point adjustment at 150). It's definitely fast but the more rudder and elevator you use the more it will slow things down. I can't view my video from work but if I recall correctly, there are times through the video that the roll rate slows down... that's when I'm giving more rudder and elevator to turn sharper.

It's all timing. Usually if I get the first rudder input in there quick enough the rest just kinda flows. I pick out a spot on the plane to look for as a key to make sure my fingers are in the right spot. That way if I get behind (or ahead even) I can adjust and keep the rollers going.

However... when I first started learning rollers I did use dual rates to help slow things down for me. I can't say whether that actually helped or hurt me to be honest. All I know is that my rollers started looking a LOT better once I went back to full rates.

HS-65HB for ailerons and 2 HS-45HB's for the elevator and rudder.
