Everyone should watch this! It's what I was describing in my previous post. What might be described as "a must to avoid" (with apologies to Herman's Hermits.....).
A spin is a sudden onset of unusual attitude and the corrective "reflex" is usually wrong
: pull back
as Ma Earth is coming up and the cows are spinning and getting larger. Push forward
and opposite rudder
. The Cub winds up a little after the second turn but if you just let go
of everything, she takes another turn and a half or so before coming out of it without input from the pilot. Better with pilot input....
If you have not done them, again, go find an instructor that teaches them. See what they look like, how to avoid them and what to do to get out of them, if there is room (i.e., not on base to final). Knowing how to avoid getting there in the first place can save your life.
