Thanks Ken, it does. Turns tight, has a nice steady run. I'd say its fully aerobatic. 8s, inverted loops, overhead 8s.... and most exciting it can take some wind!

Unfortunately I had a line issue on the maiden flight which caused me to pat the ground pretty hard, neutral some how shifted on me. Started a diagonal crack from the top of my doubler all the way down to where the tail edge is. Didnt end my day I just slapped some packing tap on and kept going. I think some glue injections should stiffen it up nicely. Now epoxy, wood glue or CA... hmmm

Also survived a nose dive when it went dead stick at the top of a loop and I didn't run fast enough. My fault again, I really should get a timer so I know when I'm about out of fuel.

Jim, maybe think about extending the doublers 1/2" past the tail. I dont think you need to run them as tall as I did. Also think about scraping the kit fuse and make one from laminating two pieces of 1/8" thk balsa with fiberglass in the middle. That would be awesome. I'm going to do that on the next 1/2 profile I build. Apparently I need the little extra strength with how I seem to operate lol.
