Remote control aircraft can emulate almost any manoeuvre that can be performed by full size aircraft, with almost none of the risk. Once you have mastered the basic controls for flight, you may wish to start attempting aerobatic stunts. One of the most basic manoeuvres is a barrel roll, where the plane rolls over in line with its direction of flight and rights itself again. Mastering this technique first will also help you complete more advanced manoeuvres later.
