Of course your at altitudes of 2-3000 feet. I would call that manuever 'cool'. Your flying at say 3000 ft. You begin by pulling back on the throttle, cutting power to the plane. As the plane begins losing altitude, you compensate by pulling the nose of the plane up. You keep cutting power and pulling the nose up while maintaining your altitude. Eventually you get to the point where the stall warning is constantly blaring and your barely moving.There's a trim wheel on the console you keep adjusting, that will maintain the angle of the nose. In calm conditions, you can do this somewhat hands-free of the wheel.My favorite 'ride' was the power-on stalls. Say you begin At 3000 feet, with full power, you begin pulling the nose up into a steep climb. Seconds before you stall the warning goes off, as the plane stalls it shakes somewhat violently. You push the nose of the plane down, your airspeed comes back pretty quickly, and you level off at the same altitude (hopefully) that you entered from, 3000 feet if done correctly. It'll blink your eyes and make ya shake your head alittle...
