    A Camel in Motion

    Wow, that's pretty much amazing, Scud.This video would have been beyond tedious to make. Nick Park's, Wallace and Gromit movies come to mind for the pure craziness devoted to stop animation.Thanks ...

Lesson demonstrating how to perform the Cuban Eight. To perform this lesson a Se5e is used to show this particular maneuver. Your heading, height and speed should be relatively unchanged from where you started.

Perform 2/3 of a loop
Roll out level when inverted
Perform another 2/3 of a loop
Roll out level when inverted

Your heading, height and speed should be
relatively unchanged from where you started

Alright, going to be performing a Cuban Eight. (S.E.5a) First off we will check our heading, height, and speed. Heading: East, speed: 128mph (miles per hour), and we’re at 4000 feet. So we being to pull up, check the horizon to see that our wings are relatively level, come out 2/3 of the loop, roll out now that we are inverted, come out level. Then perform another 2/3 of a loop, coming up, check the horizon, make sure it’s level, go inverted, then roll out, the level out.

Now checking our heading height and speed; we’re heading east, 126 mph, at 4000 feet.

Now let’s check the external view:

That’s how you perform the Cuban Eight.
