That's unbelievable, what a guy. He can fly better than 99% of everybody on this forum. Wake up all you guys, y'all get out there and learn to do that. I was 54 years old when I finally learned to do my first loop. Geez, that's a little embarrassing. The guys on RCGroups talked and coached me through my first successful loop with my Li'l Bean. Sam will be the next Londke beating me in Advanced PA... never even mind Combat. He'll be getting cuts on you pretty soon, and he'll be coming after Shawn Cook soon too, Lol

The lady next door looked interested. She better be impressed.
Thanks for the Then-and-Now posts, Mike. What a difference in a few short years. Your no-nonsense low-pressure way of doing things should be lesson #1 for all of us getting out and learning to fly or fly better. Bare basic simple equipment that works easier and better than our fragile over-engineered meticulous works of pride and wonder.

I can imagine how proud you are.
Rusty

This is a great vid and a very talented boy !!! back in the day 40+ years ago when I flew C/L with s Super Sport COX plane I practically flew it around circles with no loops and wingovers.

I am still wondering whether in a loop you guys also rotate the handle to follow the lines, or, let the lines get twined and un-twine them after each flight? I did not see Samual following the lines by rotating the handle.

Sorry for the basic question of an RC flyer.

We just let the lines wrap up. with steel you can go 7 or 8 times before you feel any friction. We are using Spectra line so you can do over 20 loops before they start to bind. I usually count my insides and then at some point I'll just do that many outsides and I'm back to zero.
