Default Flat Spins in a BVM Bandit

So I was doing my usual inverted flat spins in my Bandit. And then I decided to try to do it, right side up.

The damn airplane didn't want to recover!![X(]

When I'm doing them inverted, my Bandits (the Ultra Bandit is like this inverted) they recover really fast.

When I tried it right side up, the recovery didn't want to happen. I had to give opposite aileron and down elevator to recover.

Anyone else seen this phenomenon?

I figured the vertical stab stops the flat spin when inverted. When right side up, the vertical stab is in too much turbulence to be effective.

Hey, a right side up flat spin killed Goose in Top Gun!
