upright rolling circle

ok folks,

just to throw something out on the table..

I have been doing this for awhile but still don't know the name yet, it should be called upright inside or outside circle, I apology I set my simulator speed at 120% so it might looks a little bit unreal or too fast, in real life this maneuver should be slower, and also if you don't do it correctly, amateur might think you are struggling with torque hanging






I first saw this maneuver on Gabby's test flight, check out 3:08

Enjoy,
Jack

Interesting. I don't know what this is called. I did see a video of Gabby doing this without rolling, at Wenatchee, at night time I think it was.

Ya I think airbike has it. The upline weeble wobble. There is the downline you see a lot like during chris brislins routine in the lion king song.
The upright weeble looks like a very tight inside rolling circle. I believe inside rolling circles are when your direction of roll Is the same as direction on circle, like rolling left going left

sorry for the un-helpful answer, but that sim vid looks exactly like many of my attempts at hovering!

In the video (for those that do not speak spanish) one of Gaby's team mates says "Gaby!! watch out for the fence and, then the other team mates say "don't worry, that's the back up"

You got to love it!!!
