Might I add an word or three in edge ways...
The rocking the stick fore and aft is to get the air craft into an nose down attitude.
If you aircraft is already in this position then, it is not necessary.
The reasoning behind this is that in a really bad flat spin bothering the controls will generally do very little.
(you are in a flat spin with loss of control authority due to turbulence etc)
You have to break it out of that flat spin into a steep spin THEN apply your spin drill.
It is a sequence: Get out of flat spin, then get out of steep spin.
So it's very possible that you are rocking your stick when it is A) unnecessary B ) not all you need to do
and C) The Camel may SELF CORRECT in certain circumstances with no stick input.
Sometimes when in a Camel spin you need do nothing but wait, calmly light a cigarette and hope you do not
run out of air before she rights herself.
So the bottom line is this:
When you definitely are in a deadly flat spin, (nose in, tail out.)
rock the stick fore and aft to upset the flat spin into a steep spin.
then apply spin drill.
This may or may not be instantiated in R.o.F 100% correctly but I like to do it anyway as it the correct course of action.
( I watched a Navy flying movie on what to do to avoid becoming a statistic...)
oh and noodling along in your Camel and then prodding it into a spin is not really testing the issue.
two no three things to really test it's metal:
Blood on your goggles, a deafening roaring sound and a slightly mangled Dr1 firmly stuck on your tail shooting at you.
If you are missing any of these you are not really flying your Camel.
THEN test your spin drill... and rocking the stick etc.
They had to replace my Camel stick as I was wearing it out from gripping it too hard. ( Panic induced vice like grip..)
So, that's my little lecture on that sort of thing. Hope it helps out someone, somewhere, sometime...
