Default Snap Roll? Why not?

Want to try something new while you're flying your gyro at the club field? You can do a snap roll!

Go to YouTube.....

Give it a try,

Joel,
I see you finally got your videos up loaded..I don't have anything with high enough throws to do a snap roll but will work on it.. Loops no problem..I like the spin downs too. Mountains in the back ground look nice but for now I will keep the Florida sun.

Hope to get back it the shop soon and get back on the Whistlers Cousins.

Hi Joel...
Great videos! Your piloting is something to be truly admired.
Right now Sal and I are at the Best Western at Weeki Watchee. Had a great afternoon flying with bright sun, no clouds and some breeze.
Tomorrow the rest of the gyronuts is supposed to arrive and the weather is supposed to hold.
Would be great if you were here too to show those maneuvers!

Regards,
Bill

Hi Bill,

Glad to see that you made it to Florida and sounds like you make without getting sick.

You are too modest!! I've seen you do snap rolls many times. I think I have some on video.

Hello Guys, Jim, Bill and Phill,

I wish I could be there in Florida with you guys but it's a long way from Montana, this time of year. I hope you have a great time and I hope you have a lot of fliers and perspective fliers attend the Spring Hill event. Too bad it can't be held on the weekend so that working people could attend.
Have a good time and lots of good flights and good weather. Maybe some of the southern fliers could come to Morris this September to help make the event a success. We had a wonderfull time last September with all the gyronuts that were able to make it for the weekend.

Good Flying and good weather,

Joel
