    Dear all


    Fell into VRS and finally crashed. As some other threads mention, VRS usually goes after a sharp descent and "yaw". It is also true for my crash video.
    If that is the case, does it imply that spiral descent is not a good idea as far as VRS is concern ?

    Re: Descent_Yaw_VRS

    That's just crazy. It's looks as though it hardly yawed at all.
    What was your decent speed it's hard to tell?
    The prop guards must have been a major contributor.

    Don't quite clear the exact m/s descent rate, but it's definitely not sharp.

    My guess is that a sudden yaw (rotation) in a descent and slow approaching process may reduce the momentum of moving forward, while the momentum is essential in escaping downwash current that may furtherly induce VRS.
