Master the Elevator

Jun 25, 2013 1 Comment by

One of the easiest first 3D moves to master is the elevator.  All you need to do is lower the throttle and let the plane come down, keeping it level by holding in some up-elevator. While it seems easy enough to do, it will take some practice to get it right. Check out the video and see how Jason Benson does this simple technique, then try out some of his tips until you have mastered this fun maneuver.

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    Mr. Reid,

    At the start of this video, which is excellent by the way, you are talking with the other fellow while having a gorgeous Yak in front of you both. Gold, Maroon & Black colors look fantastic!
    Who is the manufacturer of this plane and where can I buy one of the same?

    Thank you in advance for your help.
