well, until then, what is the procedure one goesthrough to fly backwards?
Argh!!!... I need to work Tongue

I can't teach over the internet. You're on a canopy that won't like backwards to much but it CAN... be done.

Personally, I'd go out and stall it, then here's how you back spin...
<disclaimer> Don't go nuts and use a ton of input your first try because you will spin up the canopy.. and that can result in badness</disclamer>

Pull toggles down untill the canopy stalls. (that's basically how you fly backwards too) then raise one toggle, and hold on. It WILL scare you. and eventually it will spiral backwards.

Radical input will cause problems so just because it can be done, doesn't mean you should try it.

Good luck!
