That pattern was awesome!!!
If you are comfortable with those sizes stay there and work on the shapes.
I really like how you kept the plane low on the level laps between maneuvers. That is always a huge help in teaching yourself the proper height for the maneuver bottoms. Too many times I see people who fly 8'-10' between maneuvers and then when they fly the maneuver they miss the bottom high because that is what they are comfortbale with. Good job! Keep that plane low around 5' all the time.
Another very good thing you did were the round loops. From the video they looked to be pretty darn round! Usually beginner fliers will pause at the top or the bottom of the maneuver giving it a big flat spot. You did not do that and kept the plane moving all the time. VERY GOOD!!!
Keep it up you are a good flier and your videos show us all that practice pays off!!
Way to go!!
Thans so much Doug. I'm touched by your comment...especially of a flier of your caliber.
Congratulations on your 2nd place in a tough contest with a very talented field. Yeah, I kept up with all the updates on here. Can only imagine the amount of work you fellers put into it.
This summer of flying has been a much needed challenge. I'm a juggler by trade and working on the Pattern is very similar to a juggling practice. Gotta log time, take not of throws or flights. Not easy but it sure is fun. Love how the world is blocked out when the plane is in the air.
As to videos. It was part of my plan to help see what I do right and wrong. Also by posting them I have gotten critiques I would have never gotten if I had not. This site has been terrific inspiration. Sorta scary every time I press the upload button)))
Also want this hobby to look fun to anyone considering it. Several of my YouTube subscribers have commented to me that they are going to dig out their old CL planes and some are starting from scratch. Just a pebble thrown in the pond.
Thanks again and now I am even more pumped to keep at this Stunt Quest.
