3D Freestyle makes aerobatic flying interesting for the pilot and entertaining for the onlookers!

I flew pattern/aerobatic planes with screaming two stroke engines pothering smoke and castor oil from there tuned piped exhausts in my youth.
When I returned to RC flying in my retirement years everything had change; near silence due to electric power, no aerials on transmitters, computers in TX's.
Aerobatics maneuvers were the same, but more precise, perhaps more formal but most of all I was not as sharp. So F3A as I learned this new era was called was not for me.

A chap gave me a very ugly slab sided electric plane, that I was told was a 3D plane and I was hooked.
Trying to do 3D maneuvers is just a lot of fun!

I'm not on the same page as Sensei as can be seen from my attempts here...

I was inspired by seeing Daniel P Holman.

Now you did it! You sent me down the proverbial rabbit hole and look what I found! A veritable treasure trove from the OG's of 3D. I used to live for the Cirkus and DOD vids!

I also found Kyle's "Drop n in" vid! Who didn't wear out the internet watching this one over and over...!
