Why is that amazing? It does everything pretty well except for hovering.

That's my last video. I gave that plane away in September.

I can pull off the part @8-9 seconds pretty easily, the rest is outside my skillset.

Seems it would be much harder to do with a plane with so much dihedral. You do make it look easy, but I know it isn't

The SB rolls very well. Not completely axil but that's more so because of the motor placement rather than the dihedral. Same stick stir as doing rollers with any other plane. Each plane requires its own small changes to that stir but I don't recall any input that required extra effort.
