The Barrel Roll

- Flying straight and level, pull back on the stick to achieve a 30° climb (third indicator line). As soon as a 30° climb is reached, apply full right (or left) stick, still holding the stick back (at the 4:30 position). Hold this position (1).
- The plane should climb and roll inverted (2).
- You'll dive and roll out level (3).
- Stop the roll with your nose and wings level. Some forward stick toward the end of the roll may be necessary to bring the nose down (4).
Pull back on the stick to put the aircraft in a 30° climb; then roll the plane.
