Slow Roll

Slow rolls are one of the eight basic "Families."1 More complex than basic Aileron Rolls, slow rolls are designed to be done with no change in altitude or heading.

NOTE: Somewhat confusingly, slow rolls are sometimes called "aileron" rolls in competition. This usage, which identifies the ailerons as the primary roll input, is intended to distinguish the maneuver from Snap Rolls, in which rudder provides the primary roll input.
