Unintentional Flat Spin (Video)
« on: January 10, 2013, 02:17:30 PM »
26 Turn Flat Spin in a Tipsy Nipper.

"The aircraft rotated 26 times total, I was extremely dissorientated after the recovery to straight and level flight, and was unable to read the instruments. From the video I estimate I recovered at about 700ft from an entry altitude of 3500ft." 
"This aircraft is not fitted with an electric starter motor, so I was unable to restart the engine. During the "flare" to land the main undercarriage caught the top wires of a barbed wire fence that was invisible to me."
