OK, how clean do the double flips have to be? Technically I did two diagonal flips in one continuous motion....buuuuutt the second one wasn't as axial per se.

Yep, on their way to youtube. Really crappy video, and you'll have to kinda take my word for it that at least two of them were a double (my camera sucks, narrow viewing angle) but I promise I did them, and broke a part in the process I'll post em when they make it onto the interwebz.

How about moving post 5 to here and making post 5 the "current challenges"? Or keep editing the current over the first 5 you created, oh a history of challenges would be cool, starting with your first ones then each new ine in order.

You should add, the only way it can be wrapped is if you do it in a store.

I could try again after school tomorrow. I know I can do it, I just need to move the camera waaayyyy back onto the driveway or find someone willing to take video for me.

If I don't get it then out comes the superfly to try for the death roll.

Sorry... I motion to reject this attempt. Reason given: Insufficient evidence; the craft cannot be seen performing the challenge in the video. Participants cannot be entered into the hall of fame based on their "word." That is against the rules. We need to see it.

Two things you need to change when you try again. A- Do not record into the sunlight. B- Find a location with a lighter background so we can see the craft better.



Don't give up!

Best,
Chris
