"INVERTED YAW SPIN"

200 (8)

Put simply, you rotate your chosen craft upside down, then spin round and round (the bend).

The tricky bits.

Whilst yawing, you may need to mix in some roll to make it look good. The key is getting your upside down horizon correct for your camera angle. Also,you may have a tendancy to raise the throttle whilst performing said yaw, which is not ideal seeing as you’re upside down hurtling via gravity towards the ground.

If you want to stand out, maybe even do it through a gap (the top of the towers)?
Or perhaps do the old classic Top Gun to another quad…

Jez. Increase your low end pitch and roll expo. It’ll make your flying well smoother and flowy :wink:

Above the sea too, ballsy! :smiley:

So after a few failed attempts I managed to get a pretty good inverted yaw spin before yet-again, as it had been doing on several other attempts the 5" quad desynced…

I think the old RacerStar motors I’d been given with the frame are on their last legs. The desyncs have been a constant problem with this quad. I have tried messing with ESC and BF settings to no avail. They were free after all… I think it’s time for some new ones.

What frame your using as you got serious vibrations going on there

Its a qav210… they’re usually a lot worse than that…

Not sure if sim counts but I had a little play on sim this morning and done some inverted yaw spins
If sum counts count it in otherwise will do it today when I go out
