That in-close stuff's pretty cool. Was that a departure or just a nice quick roll reversal at 3:49?

Nauga,
watching scissors sharp enough to cut kevlar

Just rolling with ailerons and rudder to start a flat scissors. His nose was down and tracking pretty fast so I reversed and forced a brief overshoot. Good question however; if the airspeed is very low, snapping the airplane with full aft stick and full rudder rolls it much faster than ailerons. But you know that... what you flying these days?

I think I've seen you guys out over the Richmond area once (Yak with a smoke system?) a few years ago- where was this video taken? I'm surprised how close you two were able to stay.
