Quick question for anyone who's run into this. I just finished my instrument rating and am working on my commercial. It seems that after not having done any real maneuvers since my initial private training back in '02/'03, I've lost whatever "edge" I had back then. I've become so accustomed to standard rate turns and 500 fpm climbs and descents that I'm having a hard time being aggressive enough with the airplane to properly do chandelles and lazy eights. So much of these maneuvers are based on outside references that I'm having trouble because I'm so focused on the ball and trying to stay coordinated at these low airspeeds. I did some stalls and slow flight with my instructor tonight to try to bring back that confidence. Has anyone experienced this before?
