Post your inverted chopper pictures here for a kick !!!

Hi,

This was taken last sunday while the weather was very fabulous but force 6 wind.

That's me hovering my ECO16 . X-500-3H, ikarus v90 esc and 16 old 2000 cells !!!!. It manages 6 minutes in this flying mode.

another pass

Here's another pic of the Eco16 in forward inverted flight in a lot of breeze !!!

by the way....the engine behing me in the photo above is an actual radial engine ( i believe it's a 9 cylinder big gasser !!!) which was retrieved from a crashed aeroplane in WW II.
It has been sitting there, in the pitts area of our flying club since I can remember it !!!.

I sense some doubt as to my great flying abilities or to the authenticity of my photo. I can assure you no wires or camera tricks were used. But can he do it outdoors you may ask. So here it is all you doubters and non believers. BEHOLD....
