  •  haha, snap rolls are snappy! (3+ / 0-)

    I like the head rolls when the plane stops rolling.

    Those seem very good in the second video, and the first video with a slow roll is what I am trying to babble about.  The horizon stays almost perfectly the same in the windscreen, whereas the previous video with the diary subject plane, the horizon fell 'down'/the nose fell to earth thru the roll and he had to correct after coming back to zero degrees...I vote for your first video's perfect slow roll as 'better'....heh.

    But don't mind me, I ran into an outhouse with a boat.

      That is very fast.  It definitely is not an airplane for a low time pilot. Now the Sbach is fully certified, expect to see a lot of Extras coming on the market at fire sale prices.
