    In air control techniques

    I was doing some small jumps today, I couldn't figure out how to make adjustments for landing while in the air... all I could do is nose dive, I hit brake while in air= nose dive, I did throttle while in mid air... somehow I did a faster nose dive

    Maybe I wasn't getting enough air? I really didn't feel like breaking my new revo today so I stopped doing the jumps.

    Any tips?

    the trick for doing this and landing without nose diving is to hit the throttle right before you go off that jump and you will usually land right on your back wheels. works perfect for me every time

    Keep the same throttle and see if that helps. if it nose dives, do what koda said

    Throttle should put the nose up - check your ramp or jump to make sure its not bumpy towards the top. You should be throttle neutral leaving the jump and adjust your landing midway through. Not sure why it was going faster nose dive.

    Tip I just realized this past weekend to get great airs without the risk: Put your ramp or jump right before a hill trying to land at the crest of the hill, that way your actually getting HIGH AIRS, but since your landing is raised, if you botch your landing its really only a foot or two from the top of the hill.

    take off....speed, jump angle, & jump height has all to do with the landings. Some jumps I keep just a little throttle thru the hole jump. Then if things are going bad throttle to get the nose up, & break to get the nose down. Practice makes perfect.. get to jumping.....
    Would you go flip my truck back over??
