I was invited to hold one of the poles for a ribbon cut during practice in Salinas, was absolutely thrilling! Sean thanked each of us personally...., for not running away!

Seen him fly also. His tumbles and snaps are wicked fast in that Oracle plane, hardly any different looking from RC flying!

Have you seen the alieron setup he has?? It is crazy the plane has 8 ailerons! Each wing has 2 sections and the outboard moves farther than the inboard section where it has more momentum... It's an awesome idea and its how he gets that roll rate! Also the ONLY Pitts with an airfoiled carbon fiber stab!

Saw his version of a "pop top" a couple years ago, before I knew what it was or that RC'ers were doing a version, and it inspired me to try with a couple different planes. Our planes get more "violent" in the manuever, but I've yet to see a model get the upward and then downward flat spin movement the same, as we don't have the same energy/mass for that. Pretty cool stuff he does
