One of the best videos I've ever seen here on RCGroups. That plane is so detailed it looks 100% realistic. Can't believe you were pulling off those loops... was worried about stalls but she seems to handle everything well!

Fanstatic! The Petrel has a real presence in the air, my favourite of the Slingsby creations.

Again, making me miss home as this slope is close to Salisbury!

Keep em coming Chris
