    Booooring...

    Try doing only 110kts at only 15m above the ground and contouring mountains and all terrain in this...



    Short little video if what it's all about. From Klerksdorp and pretty level terrain. Haven't uploade the mountainous terrain video yet.

    Impressive! Low flying isnt dangerous - its the sudden stop that hurt (if you get it wrong)

    Did the cruiser survive?

    Models and Aircraft Engineer for a living.

    Here is a shot of the latest AC we rebuilt from the ground up - we spared no expense. The airframe was stripped to bare metal. all corrosion removed and repaired and then completely repainted. The engine and prop have been overhauled and every single fastener renewed so this baby is better than the day she came out the factory.
