I've really been working on my harriers. It's got a bit of wing rock. I think I'm going to try adding alittle spoileron.
This plane in the green still just looks plain mean. While they're maybe better performing planes none looks as good.

Guys you'll never believe what happend.
now I had put 3 flights on my MX so on the 4th flight I topped the tank off watching the fuel come out of the vent tube from under the cowl.
I took her up. I was feeling a little fiesty and so on an upline I went WOT and at 150 ft or so I went full left rudder, full down elevator and some right aileron..
She went into these weird sort of snap and I just watched her tumble. After about 4 seconds or so she went into a knife edge spin. I let this go on for another couple of seconds before backing off my aileron just a little.
She then goes into this high alpha inverted spin. She was just hanging there spinning at WOT. This went on for quite some time. I then nuetralize the controls backing off the throttle. Followed by righting her, then landing her.
After landing her I noticed my vent line was sticking out in beteewn my canopy and fuse.
It was sticking out about half way back of the canopy and out about 3 inches or so. It was pinced really tight.
Now my canopy fits flush and tight on my fuse. the only thing I can think of is that fuse must of really twisted.
I done the same thing acouple of weeks ago only to find my canopy had cracked on the bubble and popped loose alittle.
I really got to stopped stressing this poor plane. But it's just so much fun.

Weird! Btw that's pretty much the inputs for a pop top! Depending on how much ail you put in, and whether you chopped the throttle!

Awesome abuse levels! Nice one.

On a pop top you chop the throttle, an neutralize the controls.
My poor MX get's it at wide open throttle and I hold the controls for close to 20 seconds.
She gets really insane.
