Default RE: Flat Spins in a BVM Bandit

Airliner horizontal stabilisers are usually positioned far behind the vertical stabiliser. If they are both positioned at the very rear of the aircraft, the horizontal can blank the vertical stabiliser in a flat spin and not allow the aircraft to exit the spin well. That would explain why your Bandit exits the negative spin fine but not the upright.

Those pictures are stunning though! Keep it up if you ask me
