Maybe Align wants to hire you as a test pilot

My 4th flight on the 550. Video looks a lot better if you watch in 720p HD.

Hey guy's, finally had a chance to shoot some video of my new Mini Vbar Trex 550! I am really happy with the great overall performance of Mikado's work on the V bar. It really does fly great. I didn't shoot a very long video because my PC takes forever to upload on Youtube. I will get a better video when the wind isn't blowing 30mph!

Hope you Enjoy!

That must be some kind of optical illusion created by the camera and the speed of the tail blades. I think I would land if I saw something like that. not sure if you were joking or not.

I ordered another 550 tail fin and doubled them. Securing the tips together with one spare hex screw and nut through the hole which is there already, as if made for this..I am yet to test it, hope it will stop the trembling...
