Q&A – Battery Voltage & Performance [VIDEO]

This week’s question comes from Tom in Big Bear Lake, CA. He writes: “I understand that the more Milliamps I have in my battery will give me more flying time. But will the voltage on the battery make any difference in how the plane flies?” [kaltura-widget uiconfid=”1727911″ entryid=”0_eo7j2vxz” width=”640″ height=”390″ addpermission=”” editpermission=”” /]

In this video we examine the key control inputs in executing the three-turn negative spin. Because this is a negative spin you will bring the plane into the maneuver inverted at a fairly high altitude. You then decrease throttle and add enough elevator to maintain altitude so the plane stalls.  Although it looks hard, you will soon […]
