    RE: Too Low???

    maybe next time i go out I can give it a try.. My buddy says "do some low passes, I will snap some pictures." so Idid.. I think this one MAYhave been a bit lower than comfortable.. the typical pass was around 1 foot high.. not this paltry 3/4"!!!

    Hey I use to do those all the time, high speed and inverted using old Scat Cat 500s in sport mode.
    First the tail would hit, then the nose would hit, and that would be it. And would go home a happy man.

    It really was alot of fun! I'm lucky enough to have been able to take the plane up 3 more times that day. I even got up with a H9 Corsair and got into a dogfight with him..

    Haha nice pic!

    For reference sake, this summer I did a whole pile of full throttle touch & go's with my Ultra Sport 60 on grass for the guys! No other plane would I feel comfortable doing this with, but wow the US 60 is just so stable it's almost easy.

    Flip it over if you got the nerve. Just remember when the rudder is in the grass, you have to bank the wings a little to make it climb out. It's a hard lesson to learn.

    RE: Too Low???

    To me, it's easier inverted. Most of my planes need a little stick pressure inverted. So it's just a matter of increasing the pressure to climb out. I have stuck a few that way though. If the rudder hits very hard it will slap the nose down.
