No problem! Please tell me how it goes when you try it. It should be a lot easier to execute!

How did it go @flyin_hawaiian?

if you try very hard, you can make the F-18 do 180 (you can go on, but I managed to do ~200 at most)

I tried this on a different jet and I found it a lot easier than the F-18

What jet??

The F-16

The only problem is you go into a crazy stall

Yeah @Butter575 I just tried it and it does work way better but you have to work to control the aircraft post stall
