Yep, safety will be the topic of the year after this accident. Maybe the AMA safety code was written before 3-D became so widespread. If Roman was hovering over his head, then that will most likely...

RE: U Can Do 3D

The UCD .60 is OK as "transitional" plane to full out 3-D. I had 4-5 of them, got them to do almost every 3-d stunt(bad with rolling harriers though)with mixing in spoilerons, fuel tank over CG and...

RE: Is DA100 worth the extra $ over DLE111 ?

I haven't talked to the guy since, he took it apart enough to see the internal damage, don't know if he's going the warranty route or what. He did mention a DA120 next, but that will set him back a...

RE: DA / DL observation

Its a simple question, no bias inferred, I would like to know how much time do you have on a DLE111, also, the type of flying you do, it matters to me, 3-D is the highest risk IMO, that's why I get...

RE: DA / DL observation

If you fly mostly 3-D, constantly hugging the deck w/ $3000-$4,000 at stake(can never forget safety either), is the DLE111 worth the savings?
