Aerobatic Maneuvers – Part 6 (Immelman)

We’re back to this series on Aerobatic Maneuvers. If you did not follow previous posts, you can check all of them at the R/C Technique category.

Now we’ll focus on the “Immelman” maneuver. The figure starts with a half loop to inverted flight. A half roll then results in horizontal upright flight.

This is one of the maneuvers that have been used in WW I to reverse direction. This maneuver does not preserve speed and altitude. It trades speed for altitude.
