Default Some acro in my new RV-7

In France if we want to get approval to fly aerobatics in our planes, we have to do a "validation flight" to prove that it can safely fly all figures.
So I've done so a couple of days ago with a top notch aerobatics flight instructor. He had never flown in a RV of any type, and he was impressed by the handling qualities of the airplane.
Here is a short video of that flight (comments in French, sorry) :
Location: France
RV7 (F-PRVZ), Tip Up, Aerosport IO-375, Dynon Skyview, VP-X, Day VFR.

Flying since June 2017.

Beautiful video. Love the effortless progress from one manoeveure to next. I am accustomed to lesser performance non RV aircraft for aerobatics.
Superb scenery, and the music is great.
Did you explore any spins?

Bonjour Alain

Do you have inverted oil and fuel? You upside down moments are long enough to loose some oil.

Nice video! Have fun!
