I'd like to reach out to the pilots in these forums and ask about flatspin recovery procedures, as I recently had a discussion involving this and there was conflicting information coming from different people, and wanted to get a third input. I personally have no real-world flight experience save for flight simulators, for what that is worth.
First of all, I am referring specifically to flat spins. Frisbees. Not generic spins.
Now before I entered into the discussion I mentioned above, I thought that general procedure would be to set throttle to idle, not to touch the ailerons, to set rudders to full opposite of the spin and keep them there, then push down on the stick to try and pitch your nose down. The idea would be to counteract your spin and eventually get your aircraft into a dive, from which you could recover from the stall. This is in line with PARE developed by NASA.
One of my interlocutors, however, told me that PARE was for generic spins. He asserted that in a flat spin, you'd want to apply full power in order to increase airspeed. Elevator down to decrease AoA and further increase airspeed with gravity's help. Then you'd want to apply rudder into the spin to further enable increasing airspeed (opposite rudder would increase drag). This made sense to me, but went contrary to my previous knowledge. The only thing we agreed on was that we'd need to burn a lot of altitude either way.
Any input from you guys?
