Someone is handing out "credit" now?
If I just cautioned folks about the prop problem, it would look like I was the one that found it - thereby taking credit for your find. Most of the trick stuff that has been around for a long time is hard to find who did/found/built it first. In this case, what you found could very easily be overlooked. So, IMO, you did good.

Good afternoon kind sir...Our paths keep crossing...I think that sort of flying and recording is good but as you say..for what reason...Maybe to promote the flyer or the editor..Some say its crazy and I would agree. who knows whats coming round the next corner.

As one famous poet once said...McPhersons time will not be long...on yonder gallows wain..

Catch you in the B2 sometime my good man.

To each its own but I agree with Sculptor. It really nice..really it is, but we are calmly looking slowly at the ground . It does get monotonous after while. I would love to see the plane in action from the 3rd person. Nice land, but rather see the plane in its element since this is the SSS forum and not the fbv.IMO

excellent flight,congrats,cant wait to see the long flight ! question,how do you feel about the stability of the SSS ? I find i have to be on the sticks every second,i mean by that,she will tip alot or dive or climb alot in slight wind,next time out im going to move the CG to a bit nose heavy.

Compuatic, what R/C transmitter/receiver did you use for this flight?

And what FPV video transmitter in the plane, and what frequency? And what video receiver on the ground?

I had the same initial impression on the recommended cg. More weight in the nose fixed it up right nice, now it glides hands off

I think that info is on the first few seconds of the video? Take a look. I reserve the right to be wrong.
