I reinforced that tailplane Alex. I reckon it's good to 182.

Aaawww, absolutely loved watching that video Alex! Superb flying. Couldn't tear my eyes off it, and cringed and giggled when you rolled just as it was coming up the lip. Man, if I lived in Christchurch and could go flying with you guys in places like that, there's no way I'd be giving up DS.

That's only on mid rates. Roll rate is comparable to Tracer on full rate lol

I remember everyone running for cover when we flew the BPV at Tekapo in 2012, doing around 200 I think. Man that thing flexed. Also at Cactus ... there was lots of alarm and expectation of a big explosion that never happened!

Hey Alex, remember Patrick flying the ring out of that Big Bird at Weldon? Flexing like mad. He flew it day after day for hours at a time, up around 250 and finally it went bang.

Andre don't worry that plane is built like a brick compared to most B models, if not all.

They really are superb. I genuinely feel that all DSers need one in the quiver. So strong, so easy to fly, such acceleration, such tracking, such a wide envelope with the big span ... really special.

Yeah also had an all moving tail and rudder from what I remember. Stratos may be good for 200 in the right conditions
