So far I can control where I want to go using yaw, I can of turn my head or hip and board goes where I want when it's on water surface. Once it picks up I can still control slightly if there are weird turbulence.
But once it rolls one way whatever my muscle memory does seems to make it works and usually falls the other way of roll.
Are you supposed to stop roll by using yaw to steer board toward roll so foil gets back under you and roll levels out? A bit like on a bike, when you lean on a turn you turn further into it and wheel goes under you center of gravity and levels out?
Since I am beginner should I just bail out when it startr to roll until I can control pitch well? or should I try to recover from roll?
Yeah, just think about leaning over from the wings, not at the board, or you gonna jack knife. Keep your shit all lined up and balanced from wings to the top of your head.
Im sure after you get muscle memory it feels like you are just leaning into it but unconsciously you give a small yaw input that change equilibrium and allow you to lean into the turn, but you "feel" like you lean into it.Kamikuza wrote: ↑Tue Jun 06, 2017 12:49 pmYeah, just think about leaning over from the wings, not at the board, or you gonna jack knife.

I respectfully strongly disagree!
I dont understand what alexrider meant but for me it has nothing to do with gyroscoping effect, gyro effect just makes it a lot more apparent because you have to exert a lot more volontary force to break equilibrium.revhed wrote: ↑Tue Jun 06, 2017 1:15 pmI respectfully strongly disagree!
A bicycle has a gyroscopic component that a KBHF simply does not!
Therefore "counter steering" per se, has nothing to do with our flying toys!
Do you think your are getting lift from your STRUT?
I challenge you to remove your fuse and wings and see if you can take off with your STRUTS lift!
