RE: [[Acro] Vertical rolls-to the right in Pitts]Now that IS very interesting. Unfortunately I only have one sight gauge. Now I know why lots of folks have two. 

Or none

    It is also a good idea to be able to look left when rolling right and vice 
    versa.  When you are first learning to roll straight (after you can achieve a 
    "dead-nuts on" vertical every time), you will be using the horizon as your 
    primary reference.  When using horizon-based roll reference points, it is much 
    easier to pick them up when they come into view from behind you (about 45 
    degrees before you have to stop the roll), rather than suddenly appearing from 
    behind the wing, with 10 degrees or less of roll left before you "over-roll" 
    it. 

  Now that IS very interesting. Unfortunately I only have one sight gauge. Now I know why lots of folks have two. 

  Thanks

            I know its quite amazing, this email list has been talking about 
    aerobatics related stuff for over a week! 

            Anyway, in the 2003 Intermediate Known there is a Hammerhead with  
    roll up and none down which of course changes your heading by 90 degrees. I 
    had not actually thought too much about it but I was always doing my 
    vertical rolls to the left and this little maneuver forces you to go to the 
    right depending on your position. My problem is that I'm getting some 
    serious pitch/yaw changes when I roll it to the right on the vertical. I 
    tried it 4-5 times today with not very good results. I assume I'm somehow 
    adding elevator as I go around but I'm open to suggestions. Are there some 
    other effects happening in a right vertical roll I'm not aware of? 

            (Damn is a Pitts ever nice to fly in temperatures of about -3C) 

            Peter
