That would've been very scarey but soo cool at the same time!
It's help having an artificial horizon (like I spose you have).

I only have a nova osd, but if conditions are calm and SS/bix is trimmed out right, it should keep itself level, just need to use a bit of rudder to maintain heading on OSD and maintain needed climb rate.

I really wanna fly into some low cloud now!
