@TannerSwett Nobody really explained it. Koyovis answer was close, but left the very crux unexplained. I asked for clarification and it appears he deleted the part that I was questioning. This is a real puzzler. I wish we could get a solid, demonstratable answer. The pendulum fallacy is all over av.se and an answer here might help explain why things seem to correct themselves to vertical as if they were hanging from something.

@TomMcW Thought long and hard about the self-righting, could not find the time to try to look up references so I deleted the phrase in question. If the location of the CG is low enough, a sideways velocity will right the little model.

hi @Jamiec: So every rename will go through its own meta discussion? One part of me wants to say, well played, well played. Another, why can't it be the moderators' final call based on, say, an aircraft's actual designation?
