Very nice! The looping ability is very impressive, there have been a couple of videos posted of looping orni's previously but you definitely have them beat on quantity of loops I've tried looping my Kinkade orni's but have not even come close. Your orni looks like it has a very impressive climb rate as well. Congrats!

Looks like that bird flies amazing.

About the only things I haven't seen you do with this yet is barrel rolls and inverted flight

I tested the barrel rolls sometimes, but am not successful.
Because stability in inverted flight is bad, I consider inverted flight to be difficult.
I will try it again.

WOW!!!!

So when do you start selling conversion kits???

I have a slowhawk2 that would love to have these abilities, but I lack building skill. I can put part a to part b, but not much more than that
