I'm not sure if I'm doing a Chandelle properly... after a head on, this is what you do to gain a bit of alt while turning a bit and not burning too much E, right? About how much should I be banking... 45deg?

The type of chandelle that seems to work for me is...

1. High-speed with little speed loss.
2. Going up at a slight angle.
3. A turn to the right or left in such a way that you need little or no back pressure on the stick. This means around a 30 degree bank and sometimes less.

A chandelle should be very energy effecient. I have seen posted that the end result of a chandelle should have you near stall speed. I think that describes an elongated yo-yo or maybe an immelman.

Chandelle is a fast relaxed turn. Use it to get deep into the enemy's six when he has lower energy than you.

So, immediately after the head on, I'm watching him extend behind me... if he breaks into t a right Chandelle, I guess I should do the same? That way I'm heading toward his 6 instead of toward another head-on?

Click on Air to Air and then on the left side BFM-maneuvers.

There is a movie on this site that gives an idea.

I thought it was a half loop and half roll to increase alt. and change direction at the same time.I still think that.

What you describe above is an Immalman.
