Default slow roll

I aman experianced flyer for 38 years but never really focused on a slow roll. Now that I am into turbines I want to master it. Did a little on the simulater wow a lot of slow moving. Any tips on really how to progress into this. just thinking about a 200 mph slow roll on the deck. Any help please thanks.

Default RE: slow roll

Start higher than down near the deck??

Seriously though, consider a "slow roll" condition in your radio where the aileron, rudder and elevator rates are appropriate for what you need. At high speed, too much throw can really make a smooth slow roll next to impossible although at 200mph I doubt you be doing the traditional ~5 sec slow roll.

Four point rolls are a good starting point, master that and you just have to blend the points together. Also it's a bad habit (but a safe one), if you learn to do it a particular way as all my slow and point rolls (flying left or right) start with me rolling towards myself, looking at the top of the plane at the first point. That way the first rudder input is always opposite to the aileron. However my inverted to inverted rolls are done rolling away from myself (first rudder same as aileron), the common denominator being that I'm always looking at the top of the plane during the first 1/2 roll.

The golden rule is practice 3 mistakes high, and keep it fun.

Golden rule for "normal" speed. "Jets" and "normal speed" don't usually collide in the same sentence

At 3 times normal speed he would be so high he might not be able to see the crate.

Yeah, but I've never seen anything fall out of the sky faster than a heli.

Those things just don't plummet down in some wonky zig-zag pattern or ballistic trajectory, they rocket to earth like they've been swatted by God's flyswatter.....
