Hey BL, how's it going?

Unquestionably, the Mossie has, by far, the best thrust-to-weight of all 1s UM warbirds to-date. Here are a couple examples of what a stock Mossie can do on a Hyp 240.

ROG from my deck. She effortlessly cleared the railing with a very short takeoff run. I start doing some aerobatics at 2:20. Plenty of power for round loops from level flight - and even an aileron roll at the top:

On-board video. ROG takeoff on grass w/stock wheels. The Mossie still has plenty of power - even when carrying a 15-gram keychain cam under the belly. I didn't do it during this clip, but she will still loop while carrying the cam - however, a bit of a dive is required to make them nice & round. Notice the short takeoff roll & how quickly she gets to altitude while carrying the cam:
