I've heard about this problem since I was young, stalls and spins. Well, since I've got IL2 now, I wonder why and how do these things occur, and how do you recover your aircraft in such a situation. Thanks.

spin - to get INTO one

Get high with speed matching (controlled that means)
When high enough pull back on stick while reducing throttle/speed... untill... ya loose control THEN left or right (rudder) and pull back FULL (keeping rudder at max) on the stick untill ... ya spin and that results in loss of speed/control - descent http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - you spiral down...

To recover - NO THROTTLE (not in a spit IX then FULL THROTTLE)- stick to full forward (dive straight down) OPPOSITE rudder to the spiral... till ya recover - then gently pull up... (no rudder)

Spin occurs when ONE wing has less lift than the other, resulting in loss of control over the airplane, e.g. one wing has more lift than the other...

Stall occurs just before that (if BOTH) wings loose their lift capability... resulting in a down path of the airplane... Only speed can help you (just straight down on the stick) - gain speed - that will give lift again.

This will not work for all planes, but for 99% of em...
Each plane is different...

You can see the effect for yourself with FoilSim at http://www.morehead.unc.edu/tools/foilsim/ . Play around with the angle of attack and see what happens.

Also, I'd like to introduce you to the magical world of Google - http://www.google.com . Amazing what a little research can do isn't it?
