Was getting jealous of your fun cubs continual abuse of the weeds

I liked the "ting" noise they made on the elevator

So glad to get the Vyper back in the air .... missed it a lot

That's what you do to get the cover off the shaving cream before you shave your azz.

...Rolling up line into upright flat spin.

BTW: Congrats Josh.

...and just remember kids, as shown in the video, the more advanced way to transition from maneuver to maneuver is with a truly horrendous rolling harrier technique. if anyone wants to fly pop-tops, I have a different recipe that will give better results... there's also a little more complex KE-spin to poptop version that's pretty sweet...

You know I was really confused watching the video, there seems to be ALOT of throttle pulsing to get that 89 to do a roller
