The Four-Point Hesitation Roll

The four-point hesitation roll is a good maneuver for low-level demonstration and exhibition flying. You'll want to begin and end this maneuver on the same heading. The problem is that during the portions of the maneuver when you are flying on your side, you will be turning. To compensate for this, push forward on the stick when flying on your side. Also, if your hesitations at each point are for the same length of time, the turns should cancel each other.
