Default What's a Splat?

I have been reading the Outlaw construction thread and have seen several references to the Splat maneuver. Can anybody describe it and the control inputs used? Video would be even better. Just dreaming, I know...


Thanks,
Mark

it is a cross between a "lawn dart" and the "inverted flat spin of death".

It is pretty much like doing a blender. You climb real high then dive at full throttle straight down holding full aileron until you get about 50ft from the ground. Then you go into a flat spin. The stick movements are easy, just knowing when to pull out is the hard part. Plane get moving pretty fast.

Thanks for the description. From what I read, it sounded very much like a blender, but I wasn't certain. I'll be trying that one with some altitude for the first few attempts.
