Yeah, that was a trip. I've never seen that done with a wing before.

Don't know if it is a real manuever, but here it goes:

Climb to 150 meters straight over the field. Then a half roll. Nose straught at the ground, power to full...
Pull it up a bit as not to catch any three's, and as low as I dare over the field. And keeping it as low as I dare for as long as I dare.
They say that I regualy hit branches as I pull it up.
And of course then there are the victory rolls as it fly's away over the three's. Hey, it survived it's run...

I hit the ground twice to date, and once a sign post. But EPP keeps forever apperantly....

This is a really fun way to overtake a gasser that is flying at 1 meter by flying under it.

As LOW & FAST as you can go!! Get down on the deck and you don't need a 150+ mph wing. Speed is relative, terrain masking is a BLAST with an occasional pop-up maneuver just to catch your breath now and then.

Mega powered clipped 40" TAZZ.

Happy "Smokin' Low Flyin!!"

Cant' believe this hasn't been said yet...

CRASHING!!! Anything to make it hit the ground... cause they bounce back so well and people are amazed to see it hit so hard just to get tossed back into the air and fly again.

Seriously though, gliding thermals all day long, using the motor to pull back at you for another round... ok, then power diving into a corkscrew so it looks like its on rails...!!

My favorite is crashing and if possible gunning it on the rebound. I've crashed enuf that I've actually been able to pull it off a few times. Damn that soccer post video.

marjamar ,I think ive got you beat on that. Who needs thrust vectoring when you can use a perfectly good tree branch. Heres the video ,you cant see it but you can hear it.
I then follow it up with a 30ft belly smacker (talk about spot landing)

I've got a Mega powered MicroJet and I like doing reverse roll break-outs. This is something I pick-up from watching the Blue Angels. Just after a high speed low level pass pull-up slightly do a 270 deg roll either right or left and break (high g turn, 90deg bank) the opposite direction of the roll. It's really cool looking. I also like on the deck high speed figure 8s where your head is at the cross-over intersection and you've got to duck. My MicroJet has more thrust than weight, so I like to show off the vertical capabilty by going straight-up at 70+ doing blindingly fast rolls - sweet, but it disappears in a hurry!
