flick roll

flick roll

flick roll
When a swept wing flexes, points A and B as well as points C and D rise through the same distance. However, point C rises further than A and there is a consequent loss of incidence. This is maximum at the tips under high G conditions. This results in center of pressure moving forward and resulting in tightening the maneuver.
A very rapid roll executed at a slow speed when the aircraft is practically in a stalled condition. The pilot applies the full rudder and pulls back the stick at a very low speed. The pilot then moves the stick forward and centralizes the rudder for recovery from a flick roll. It is usually a prohibited maneuver except in special aerobatic aircraft. There is a difference between a flick roll and the snap roll; the former is at very low speeds and is not a controlled maneuver; whereas the latter is a controlled maneuver that is executed at well above stalling speed.
