    Here's a recording from realflight of how I do it(really sloppy flight, haven't been on the sim in a while), but at least you can see my stick inputs. Didn't wrap up tightly because of realflights physics, but it's pretty violent in real life(Added music because of background noise)[video=youtube;Cc_qyN7nDrM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc_qyN7nDrM&feature=youtu.be[/video]
     
  3. [MENTION=2294]jmart95[/MENTION] In the spirit of friendly competition, I attempted to one-up you. I switch from an outside spin (admittedly poor compared to yours) to an inside spin in the same maneuver. The positive angle of attack of the inside KE spin allows the plane to transition into a positive flat spin on the exit as opposed to a negative flat spin in your vid.

    Nicely done Drew, I've always thought switching between the two looks good(and love a competition!)! Also how are you recording your session on realflight, I know you can't export a realflight recording through realflight so I'm not sure what to do.

    We should make a new thread for most interesting down lines and how to do them :)
     
  6. I use fraps.com. I have the un-registered version, which is why my clip is only 30 seconds long. Once you download it, just use the video capture hotkey to start recording.

    Fraps is pretty great because it also let's you do the voice over while you are flying. That is what I have used in my tutorials as well.
