Yes, do not try to stablize anything during the descent. The model will 
probably do wild figures. That's ok. The point is that it will fly very 

My be you should expect a loss of GPS fix. It might be clever to keep this 
configuration olny for a fixed time (30-60s), then check where you are again.

No clue. You'll probably have to define somtething new for paparazzi. I used 
this method on regular gliders. My Horus ( is 
not good enough that I've had this kind of problems before...

Another technique that works well for planes with elevators is to fly on the 
back. It works if you have an asymetrical airfoil (Twinstar, easyglider, 
Cularis...). On a paparazzi system this sould be only a question of exchanging 
what is up and what is down... Here again, expect to loose GPS signal if you 
use a patch Antenna...
