Yes I'll say .. Great video .. really liked it Especially that last Launch.. Whew.. I've never flown a DLG but it seemed like each time you whip that thing you almost rip the lower wing off as it must be only inches above the ground.. Nice roll at the apex of the last one.... what the heck happened then? what was the damage? it looked minimal .. but it came in really fast to have survived that well .. amazing.. Thanks.. Looks Like a great workout scheme for Discus Lovers.. and tho what goes up must come down.. .. not necessarily rite away with a DLG.

Pilot error/stupidity! I don't now how it's happened. I inverted plane, lost all speed wen to inverted dive/spiral and i couldn't recover. Sad... My first week flying flaperon. Still learning how to fly. On top of that it's my second plane ever. First was/is R/E much easier to fly and much more stable. Link above showing photo of damage surprisingly little considering speed.
infamous crash... http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=961339
