Practiced stalls again today. Like most people, I absolutely dislike when the plane breaks to the left or right. But today it finally clicked why it did (not the more lift on one wing part, the thing leading up to that).
So I’d get the plane set up, ball centered. Take a breath, just to make sure it was stabilized, and then it’d wander off center. Try and recenter and the plane will start turning. Rudder to stop the turn leads to the ball not being centered – ugg. The turning always confused me, until today, when I realized it was from the 3 left turning tendencies (p factor, slipstream/plane design, engine torque). P-factor gets worse with increased angle of attack – duh. And you obviously increase angle of attack when performing a stall. Now it makes sense why you want to pull back in the yoke/do the stall the moment you are coordinated – such an easy recovery. It is pretty much impossible for me to not break left or right if I let the turning start.
