Wonder if it would be worthwhile to start a new forum category just on flight techniques. I find that a lot of the reveal shots I like to do require a nice steady climb to altitude, then I often want to get my machine back near the ground as fast as possible for a reset. Also I find that buffeting on descent, (even though I try to stay out of my prop wash) forces me to abandon most of the descending shots I try during return to base. So if I just want to get my machine back to base in a hurry, is it OK to chop the throttles (say 15-20%?) and drop really fast, or is there danger of loss of control? I find myself hesitant to come down too fast, but sometimes it seems to take forever to return.
