Hots Dart....fun plane

Loops, rolls, tail taps, inverted flight, hovers and harriers, this plane does it all! So why has it not been built more? Got the plan off the main Smart Dart thread a couple of weeks ago, but could not find any discussion, and only 1 youtube video. Anyway the planes looked like it would be a great flyer so I decided to build one. I have built a couple other Darts but this really is a incredible little plane. The video was filmed in 10-15 MPH winds, loads of fun!! Check out the video and let me know what you think.

Ringing out the Hots Dart!!!! (4 min 26 sec)

Nice vid, liking the model as well, but what stunning weather
I might just build a dart of similar design, hoping it bring's the weather with it !
Looks like a nice venue too, a bit of tarmac for 'proper' take-off. I fly from a field but no runway, hand-launch only. Not sure what the farmer would think if a strip of tarmac 'turned-up' in the middle of his field ! Better not then

Yeah the farmer might not like that. I fly out of a AMA field in Stone Mountain GA and we do have a nice field. Glad you liked the video.
