Real quick as I'm at work. I did get to fly the ACE and loved it. It felt very clean and stable, despite the windy conditions. The trike gear was fun and different. When I build one, I will want the trike setup.

Part of the reason the video I shot wasn't good was because Brian was really ripping up the sky. I couldn't keep up with him! When I flew it, I wanted to see the other end of the envelope and slowed it way down. It was almost in a harrier with just a bit of wing rock and no indication that it wanted to drop out into a spin. This characteristic made landing a snap. I brought it in with a touch of power and when it was just about to touch down I killed the power and it just set right down. Made me look better than my rusty thumbs really are.

This plane is definitely a winner.
