It was a treat to hear him coment during the flight about how well it flew how well it tracked. loooong slow rolls point rolls and snaps flips and tumbles..

No camera and no video bummer.

It will be a long time before this plane gets that low again, but thanks Kyle.

Awesome! Shame about the no camera though.

There hasn't been as much progress as i'd like due to work my son and wife have both been sick in that order, so haven't had much time to work on the M12, but I have got the cowl mounted and the motor fitted. I ended up fitting the Motrolfly as the mounting pattern worked better.
