RE: First 3D Gas Plane
There are quite a few around. I saw Chip fly the Vision at the NATS. My observation is that is a solid flying 3D airplane. I think I had inspired him on the low inverted harrier, as he was practicing quite well with that aircraft after the NATS last summer, and it showed during his freestyle at the Don Lowe Masters.
There are a couple of posts about the WildHare planes within this forum, folks have good things to say about them as well.
