Been a while since Ive seen that one Al.
I should doppler it!
Way too many passes for a speed contest jet. You should have made a couple passes in both directions with some low throttle and throttle "off" time on the back stretches, then landed.
Very nice though.

All hail TS. LOL

There's no video of mine.

Looked faster to me. I'm too lazy right now. oh wait. Temp is in the vid, as per the rules.
Maybe I'll do the fast downwind pass for fun.
Nobodies talking Habu here now anyway.

Thanks for that. Wish I had known this a week ago

I got it pretty close with this Pactra stuff. Probably not as close as the model masters but it looks pretty good from a few feet away.
