Hi,

I'm not sure what a Metronoming Horizantal 8 is - I've seen this description but it hasn't cleared it up for me.

"With the model oriented tailboom vertical or tailboom horizontal, a remote 8 is prescribed with a series of pitch-activated metronomes"

Does it mean with elevator metronomes, that the model travels sideways to the direction of metronoming - thus each metronome is equal.

Or maybe is it that the model travel with the metronome, so going from invt to upright it covers twice the ground than when going from upright to invt.

Any ideas ?

Regards,
Kev

Well, a metronome is when your in seideward flight and doing tick-tocs. So a figure 8, while doing a metronome would be prety hard!

A tic toc and a metronome are the same thing.

You can do them tail down, nose down or do it horizontally forward or backward.

I see the horizontal 8 metronome to mean a tic toc with the boom horizontal and making a figure 8 while doing your tic tocs using pitch and aileron.

A variation would be do the same thing tail down, tail up, forwards, then backwards and finally pirouetting and repeat all the styles.
