    All, I just watched the “Most common Spins” Video. Very instructive, even for me. We all need to remember that it’s NOT the rudder that turns the glider but the wings. The rudder keeps the flow perpendicular to the wings. It was very instructive to see the horizon remain in the “proper place” while the yaw string moved way off center (and the stick was pulled back) resulting in a spin. So if your attitude looks right but your controls are messed up you could easily be heading for a spin. Thanks Steve for the link! John Lincoln
