Yes the increased bank angle duing the turn to make the airplane appear to ''turn around a point on the ground like it would with no wind
'' around during the crosswind to downwind turn is the culperate.Â* But Load factor has nothing to do with a stall.Â*Â*
The only reason a wing stalls is angle of attack.Â* A wing can stall at any attitude, weight, load factor, speed ect......
Your explanation should go like this.
The observed ground track is the culprit. So many times I've seen guys make that turn after takeoff or go-around and roll their toy into a fairly steep bank. When the model slips downwind instead of pivoting through the turn, they steepen the bank to get what they want to see.......a tighter radius......steeper bank, more ANGLEÂ*OFÂ*ATTACK, less stall margin. Plain and simple. It makes me chuckle when it is written that the plane is ''banked 30 degrees''.....when was the last time you saw a 30 degree bank turn with a model jet. It is usually 45 to 80 degrees.
To create more lift you either have to increase airspeed over the wing or increase your angle of attack.Â*
During a turn you loose some of the vertical component of lift
to the horizontal component of lift
so to not loose altitude you have to increase total lift
to get back the vertical component of lift you lost.Â* So the pilot turns steeper....has to pull back on the stick more to maintain altitude.........and exceedes the critical angle of attack. The plane stalls.Â* If the plane is not coordinated one wing will stall more than the other........this will start a spin.
People turn rc jets faster than prop planes because they are going faster and they are trying to keep their planes close to them.Â* The faster you are going the spteeper the turn you need to keep the same radious in a turn.Â*
Load factor is simply the result of the airplane acceleraing toward the inside of a turn.Â* The faster you are going the more lift you can create at any given angle of attack.Â* More lift available means you can change the planes direction quicker wich creates more accceleration......and more load factor.Â*
