Video: Minivec Acro


It's been months of fog in San Francisco, so earlier this week when the sun appeared and the wind blew from the west, the Westridge slope zombies convened a board meeting at the coast office. Reed was good enough to man the video camera to record the Minivec doing it's thing. Here's the result I call "ARESTI'd Development". Enjoy.

From the look of the way she flies in the video (which is very nicely ), I'd say the kits a keeper Chris! Awesome looking location to fly, I need to make it over there someday.

Finally.

Someone who flies a MiniVec like it was designed to fly. It's a Thoroughbred built for speed and agility, and it craves big air and lots of room to show her stuff. Well done.

Nothing like the blend of a hot plane, talented pilot, beautiful site with giant lift and a skilled cameraman to catch it all.........

Gotta' admit those flat spin recoveries that dipped out of view resulted in a muscle twitch immediately above my seat cushion.

Very Nice Stuff, Mr. Stick!
