Sitting there watching it, had it not hit the ground, no one would have ever known you screwed up. It was awesome to watch and I'm glad you won. BUT, knowing your intentions, it would have been spectacular to see it end with a hover.

Thanx Arron.So let me get this right.the stick movements are the same as doing a normal blender?except your obviously flying in a horizontal line.
will have to give it a go on the sim then one of my foamies,cus I'm sure to mess it up a few times before I'll try it on my balsa planes.
Just a q,does one need a more "heavy" plane to get the momentum going?in other words something like an EF MXS ect,or will the lighter 3d planes do it aswell?like an Addy?

More momentum will definitely make it more violent. Small foam airplanes may have some trouble, as they do not have the mass to do it.

Thanx Wamsy.guess it will have to be some sim time and get used to the different directions it will end up before getting the balls to try it on my balsa's

Never flown an Addy but I doubt it would be able to do it. Any of the EF EXP series will do it VERY well. The MXS will be INSANE!

The addy will most probably be too light.but will give it a go with various planes on the sim and see
