point your nose up, full right rudder, full left stick... hold it there.... do this with plenty of altitude, ground comes up quick

to get out of a flatspin, it's not always full forwards on the stick, but you use opposite rudder to the rotation direction, don't push forwards on the stick too much, overcompensate, and get yourself in an upside down flatspin...

your goal is to point the nose directly down, get enough airspeed that you can safely pull up out of the dive.

if you're in a plane with a propeller, keep throttle at idle when you're trying to get out of the flatspin, the engine torque can keep you in it, depending on direction...
