I can loop mine in my house with little effort. Outside loops are easier imo.

Mine won't loop! Never tried the inside loop though..

Last night my wife wanted to learn to fly so I was teaching her with the MV. She did alright, but broke a prop shaft! bah! I've been flying since Christmas with no probs then she flies one night and it's broke.. hahahaa.. Was still fun though

Ahh, the inside loop works like a charm! Nice! I was even able to do a half loop and fly inverted halfway across the room.. I need a bigger area to see if it's possible to hold it inverted for any length of time. I suspect with that dihedral it'll want to fall out of it at all times.

Yah, that's pretty much what happened with my 1983 280Z Turbo.

Flying a hyp 70 I smoked the landing gear breaking one strut. Flying gearless for now, not sure how to replace them.

I fly my MV at over a mile high. The stock prop sucked. I found that a micro citabria prop works really well and gives it more maneuverability and a good power boost. Also, I drilled another hole on the rudder control horn for more throw and moved the elevator to the innermost hole. loops are tight and I can get it into an inverted, no altitude loss spin. Looks cool.

This is where I find to be best battery placement for slower living room flight.. I just eye it every time.. This will glide straight too if I toss it with no power.

Nice! Did you do something for more elevator throw other than moving to inside hole? Mine can't pull off a loop even if I dive first. I'm on the inside hole bit had to adjust travel to like 68% to avoid binding with rudder.

Huh. The outside loop is no prob now.

No, I jacked my end points up to where the rudder rubs pretty good on the fully deflected elevator. In flight, the elevator doesn't rub much because of flight loads. The smaller diameter and higher pitch prop helps a lot with tail authority.

Hey, I didnt think about that much......so you didnt even move the rudder up? I would love to have extreme throws like that without having the rudder and elevator bind. What did you set the travel on the elevator as?
