Question
Sportsman humpty bump

1. When doing this years sportsman humpty bump theres a 2x8 upline, does it matter which way the 2x8 is done (inside or outside), meaning the pull over top is either coming towards you or away from you.

2. Which way is the best way, assuming no wind?

thx

it will dermine if you need to go out or need to come back in. i like the humpty to help correct if i drift to far out or in and get me back on my line. so it is up to you on which way you want to do it.

The actual half luop is a PULL (you are looking at the top of the plane). The way you determine if coming in or going out is done by the direction of the wingroll in the 2 of 8 pt roll. If you roll to the right then the plane will come in toward the flight line and if you roll to the left the plane will go out. The 3/4 roll on the downline is the same direction roll that you used on the upline.

Good luck.

Well your last sentence is correct no matter which direction you're flying the sequence. But the in/out depends entirely on whether you're entering flying left-to-right or right-to-left.

Good catch there Earle. You beat me to it.

Example: If flying L to R...... If you wnat the plane to come in (toward you) on the cross-box portion of the maneuver, you will make the 2x8 to the right. You will be looking at the canopy before the pull over the top Plane to go out or away from you, 2x8 to the left.

Example: If flying R to L...... If you want the plane to come in, make the 2x8 left, if you want the plane to go out, make the 2x8 to the right.
