Secrets to snap rolls!

Secrets to snap rolls!

Inside and outside snap rolls can add great excitement to your flying while opening up a whole new world of maneuver possibilities. Outside, or “negative,” snap rolls are accomplished by applying full (normal rate) down-elevator while at the same time cross-controlling the rudder and aileron. How does this work? The ailerons produce the same direction of […]

Editor Picks: Best Biplanes

Back in the dawn of aviation, two wings were necessary to form a strong, wire-reinforced structure that was still light enough for the meager power systems used to propel them. Today, the latest biplane designs are simply amazing and are used for everything from crop dusting to unlimited aerobatics. For the RC bipe guys, it […]
