Doc... see, if anyone could ever manage to drag you a couple states to your north, once in a blue moon...
you could've demonstrated the Enema and its subtle differences to both the zwiebelurm and the pop-top.

how do you get it to stay still at the top of the pop top, just apply opposite rudder?

Thanks for posting Curtis. I was sure that Leo was doing a Pop Top as the announcer called it a Lomcevak which was an obvious mistake. He probably had never seen one before and this was his best answer?

Yes... APC 12/6E.

I have a little trouble readingv the small lettering the props are marked with, so nowdays I use a black marker. That also denotes that I balanced the prop.

Years ago I broke an 11/5.5. I accidentially put a 14/7 on the plane and, of course, it blew up in a big fireball and trailed billowing smoke all the way to the ground, whereupon it coughed out a little black mushroom cloud. Now I mark my props in big, black letters so there can be no doubt

I'm the Doc, that's how.

It depends. If I hit it too hard and it is going to rotate past straight back, I will hit opposite rudder to catch it where I want it. Most of the time, because I have done a billion of these, I hit the timing pretty close and it's a matter of releasing the rudder at the right time and it stop spinning on it's own.

It looks like, to me, a gust of wind stopped him. He had no rudder applied when it stopped, so a mix of Doc's timing and wind probably made for that cool stop at the top of the pop top. Either way, it looked really cool!

If it is the 2820 then you have the right prop
