PZ Mosquito on-board video

My first on-board video from the ParkZone Mosquito. I'm using a 15g keychain cam on a stock plane. It's mounted under the belly at the CG. As one would expect, the extra weight is very noticeable. Power-to-weight is more in line with full-scale ships. Nevertheless, she seemed to handle the payload just fine. I was flying from the club field. I tried a few loops, but only one worked out. I also did an aileron roll. I need to work on smoother landings with the extra weight. I plan to shoot some more video soon. Hopefully, from my yard.

EDIT: 5/24/2011:

This evening, I decided to take the Mossie w/keychain cam up for a cruise over my yard & woods. It was a bit more turbulent up there than I thought, and the lighting wasn't the best. I'll shoot some more video when it's calm, and when the light is better.

Another on-board clip from the field. Was a great day for flying:
