Default What is "Crow"?

I have bee reading this forum for a few days, and noticed that many people have refered to "Crow", but I haven't been able to figure out what it is.

Can anyone define crow, and explain why I would want a tx that can be programed for it?

PS, I' just getting in to RC gliders, so be gentle.

Thanks

crow is basically the ability to adjust the camber of the wing, allowing the plane to slow down without picking up airspeed (to land, descend, etc). I've seen this on gliders and some powered models (ultrasticks, etc).

basically, it boils down to dropping the flaps, raising both ailerons and, optionally adding some elevator to trim any pitching caused by the first two.

It's a bird, typically black...

or, sometimes refers to members bragging about their new planes...

or, may refer to what a poster eats after flaming too much.


sorry, couldn't resist- it's been a long day. Besides, Joe already answered your question.
