Cuban Eight (aerobatic only) - The model approaches parallel to the runway (1). After passing the judges' centreline, the model pulls up (2) into approximately 5/8th’s of an inside loop and continues heading downward (3) at 45 degrees, inverted. The model performs a half roll on the 45-degree downline on the judges' centreline; followed (5) by another approximately 3/4 inside loop to 45 degrees inverted (6). The model then executes a half-roll to normal flight (7) on the judges’ centreline, and then recovers (8) to straight and level flight (9) on the same track, heading and altitude as the start.
