We are very fortunate to have Jason Benson explain this rather cool move, the Pop Top. This maneuver just requires some stick timing and the willingness of the pilot to repeat it until it becomes second nature. Jason offers up some tips that make learning this move a little easier. This is a great turnaround move that gets the plane heading the other direction and has a great wow factor for the crowd. Watch the video and learn, grasshopper.
See the upcoming September issue of Electric Flight. John Glezellis explains the entire maneuver in his Aerobatics Made Easy column.
