I must admit... I've been practicing a ton on FMS. Any time I get a chance I'm flying rolling circles in FMS on whatever plane I can. It has definitely helped. Next I'll see if I can practice the salmon manuever on the simulator as well.

I love FMS... you just can't beat free and the ability to use your own transmitter. I am using my DX6 transmitter hooked up to FMS with a simple mono jack to the microphone input on the PC.

This time a CC 45 will go into it and Im sure the problem will be solved.

I have a 36 rw demon that has that smell it was way cool seeing smoke trials coming from the back of an electric till i understod it ment fire.....

Dead stick landing and all... Sorry FlyBoy That was an exspensive smoke show... It was his borrowed CC80 that smoked...

GR8 Thread, I'll have to try these rolling circles next time out. I like pulling out of a powered dive and while at max speed at 45deg. heading up cutting throttle and giving it full up and left or right aileron for a second on very high rates, this sends my wild wing into a flat spin. I hope I haven't upset any Goose fans.

Charger, your 50 flies sweeeet and you have some nice flying skills. I'm going to have to learn that salmon. I like the Immelman and high speed dive into victory roll.

Do high speed directional reversals.

High speed, invert the wing, do full elevator.

Fly a low pass, do an invert, do full down elevator before it hits the group.

Gets the audiences every time (this one failed before - sent soil flying 10 metres away)

That was a one shot deal........so far. Chris was building me a new TL 50, and the one I had was brought back from the grave, I knew it's days were numbered ( especially the way I fly). I was going to do a vid with some wing dips on water, or some T & G's on water.......but not much water in the desert ........we do have plastic milk bottles

When them Fity's are dialed......they are the best I've flown for aerobatics!! They are my favorite for the Salmon. They just carve the air sooo nice, total dialed control.

I call it a "fan fold walk-up". Half inside loop to inverted, build speed, half outside loop to rite-side up, keep repeating as you climb in altitude.
