Red Bull racing question

Recommended Posts

I don't have Acceleration yet -- today or tomorrow -- so this question is about the default mission. When it says "Go vertical" after gate 4, how do good racers come down for gate 5? Do they turn? Or turn over at the top of their climb?

I turn over at the top of the climb and approach gate five at an angle from the right - that makes passing through at knife-edge a lot easier.

Thanks, kd001.Here are some videos (not of me!) on YouTube:

First thing I noticed: he flies around a bit to build up speed before passing the first gate. Doh! I guess if you've ever watched one of these races in real life that would be obvious.Any advice on the touch-and-go? E.g., what airspeed?

I turn on the down-line so I can properly orient myself to the entry to gate 5. Here is a YouTube link of one of my flights -
