ACM Lesson 02 - Split S
A demonstration of a Split S (basic fighter maneuver) using my micro-scale (1:200) F-4 Phantom II.
About this creation
I have been busy with another MOC lately, so I decided to do something simple for the next ACM example -- the Split S maneuver. The Split S is a defensive maneuver. The goal of the maneuver is to disengage from combat by gaining speed and rapidly changing direction.

To perform the Split S, the pilot begins with wings level and then does a half roll, ending up inverted (position #2). When the half roll is completed, the pilot pulls back on the stick, loading the wings, and begins an inverted dive. As the aircraft continues to pitch though the dive, it eventually returns to a horizontal, wings-level position (position #3). At that point, the aircraft should have increased its speed due to the drop in altitude and will have reversed its heading. With some luck, the pilot will be able to put the throttle into full military and extend.

If a full reversal of the heading is not desired, the pilot can roll as he is pulling through the vertical turn.
