Question
Gas engine throttle management during 3D

I've got a question for you pro's out there. I've noticed most of the professional 3D flyers "blip" the throttle a few times just before entry into high energy spins or maneuvers. I imagine its to prevent the motor from becoming fuel starved but I've not seen anyone discuss the technique in detail.
Can anyone give me a detailed explanation or point out a thread that discusses the technique?

Thanks

There's a little more to it than that. A quick blip of the throttle if the engine has been at idle helps to ensure it doesn't load up when you will need the power. Others blip it because they want a temporary blast of air, but not too much. There's also a throwback to electrics/foamies that many practice with.

Personally, I'll blip it to clean the engine out, and outside of that, I try to keep my power as smooth and consistent as possible.
