Intro to Slope Aerobatics with PicaSim
My first effort at trying a more tutorial-style video production, using the PicaSim R/C flight simulator to more clearly illustrate some of the basic figures of R/C slope aerobatics flying, as well as talk about the differences between a traditional aileron/elevator slope plane versus a true aerobatics glider.
PicaSim does a great job modelling flight dynamics for Ultrabatics and VTPR, and the Le Fish flight model included is pretty darn good (I’ve given Danny loads of feedback on it ). It also allows me to easily show the stick inputs I’m giving as I fly the figures.
I hope this is helpful for those just getting started in slope aerobatics. Let me know if you’d like to see more!
