Gordon, I really enjoyed the video, particularly the aerial stuff: it really shows the fun we were having to see live video from above of several guys flying like crazy at the same time. Thanks for posting details on your camera rig in the EBT thread also, looks great.

Yak video

Josh, Yak video please

I think we're all AMA members (despite our guerrilla event). I'm looking forward to trying out that new runway with the 87"...

EDIT: you must have read my mind!

Although a sad incident, it does make for cool video. The slo-mo is awesome

Great Video!! Sorry to see the yak go... but, if it was going to go... at least it went in a in a proud way...

Usually it's me who puts one in from low knife edge.. (55" SHP at SEFF, 47" Velox at Grapevine). I guess it's not a party until one goes in...

The canopy IS repairable ! Ohhh...and the Extra Stiffy flys again Better than ever too. It needed some right thrust to make it 'better'.

Ben does the 87" PROUD ! (7 min 40 sec)

Sorry to see the yak go in but that was the best demonstration of ''Massive Deceleration Testing'' with an electric 3D plane ive seen . The slow motion replay rocked,two thumbs up for determination and follow up after the first low high speed pass.. the first pass was worthy of a standing ovation by the peanut gallery but the pilot took it to a higher level and even lower,that will probally be one of the top ten clips of all time on here,awesome flying and glad there was video to preserve it.. Priceless .

You realize WHO the pilot is ? The 'self fulfilling prophecy' was "The Yak must die....Texas style !" Poor Yak...it was the "sacrificial lamb" for the Guerrilla Squad Fly Low

Ach...the actual plan was to scrape the wing tip...but I wanted to keep it on the far side of the "strip" and, well...it got a little too far. Oh well, I needed the gear for the V3 proto anyway...
