Good one. (On the barrel rolls, looked like you might have gotten less G, and less nose down, during the completion phase if you had allowed the nose to rise a little higher during the first part.)

Thanks for the tip, I will try to get higher before applying aileron next time.

This saturday I spent one hour up in the beautiful sunshine.

Your AI sure didn't like that!
Looks fun, thanks for sharing.

Yes, you are right about the AI, there is no way of locking it down. But somehow it finds the correct position after a while :-)

Kjellie,
Looks like your artificial horizon indicator rolled over after the loop.
After ruining 2 of them I went fully electronic, as they don't tumble.
