yes we proved your method correct and have come up with another and will be uploading a video soon. Its a 100% effective unless u miss the rudder.

Good video, I've always been nervous about letting it come down in the spin, but I think I'll try it next time now =)

The only way I can do it is with Dave's method (still working on yours as it seem much better). So all I can tell is that with Dave's method, you can simply reverse the right stick totally (it's up and right) to down and left, and it stop the spin almost right away, and it does stay relatively level. I would not want to do a full speed upright boomerang landing. But by stopping it just before, it does become a simple elevator landing. So with your method, there's probably a way to do the same thing and stop the rotation quickly just before landing...

Your video is taken from too far away, so I'm not sure, but I think your actual method is counterclockwise (if you're looking at the Stryker from the top as it's going down) while Dave and Lamber's methods are clockwise (again looking at the Stryker from the top). So if I'm right, most likely, the sticks moves could be all inverted and the spin could be done both way, easily. Something else that could be interesting I guess.

yeah reverse the sticks you reverse the boomerang. THe camera hhas terrible zoom so its hard to show the spin but the landing was while it was in the boom and no damage has occured from probably 50 landing like this on 2 strykers.

Not gonna happen with a pusher..... The fuse is too short, plus I don't think it has enough thrust to reverse like that and not hit the ground... And there is the fact that most people here say it doesn't have very much rudder authority.

But correct me if any of these are wrong.

Hahaha... not what I meant at all. But I can see how I wasn't clear. I meant show the boomerang in that format, with the stick input on one screen full speed and slo-mo.

The way I do it is to

1. Carry some good speed
2. quickly push down elevator and full aileron deflection (either way) power off and opposite rudder
3. Once spin is established switch rudder to same direction as alieron


if you want a upright spin

do the same as above but entry should be between 30-45 degrees. Hold the controls until it establishes a flat spin. It might look like its going to be an inverted spin first... don't worry just hold on, it will go upright. Do not reverse rudder (it stops the pin for some reason)

Thanks

That's the bigger Stryker, but here is a good elevator landing example:
(you simply stall your speed, go full elevator, and let the Stryker come straight down. Basically, it's a vertical landing, no forward speed)

F-27Q Parkzone Stryker elevator landing (0 min 35 sec)


And here's some upright boomerang landings:
