    Tony,<br /><br />That was interesting. I saw Robby at Sun N Fun at the Whirlwind booth. He seems like a really neat guy. I just bought my helmet cam (Sony 580 EXview) on Ebay today. Thanks for posting the good find!

    It is interesting. You get a pretty good idea of where he's looking. Too bad there's no way to turn off the music and hear the engine. It would be fun if we could see what his feet are doing, too.

    Don, I agree.<br /><br />I particularly like watching when he had to use two hands to grab and yank the stick.<br />Sheesh! <br />I have to do that in a Phantom UL to avoid getting 'phantom roll elbow' but I figured a manuverable plane like the MX-2 would have lighter control forces.

    I noticed the two-hands parts, too, Tony. I think they're all when he needed quick full right stick. That's a backhand motion for the right arm, and he evidently needed a bit more oomph. There's at least one video of Bob Hoover using both hands to roll his Shrike.

    I was just watching some vids of Hoover on youtube last night. The one of him pouring ice tea as he did a full roll was especially great, and showed what an excellent pilot he is (or was....I don't know if he is still flying today or not). He mentioned in an interview that he did that years ago while flying some generals in back, who were drinking coffee, and they never spilled a drop. Chuck Yeager, a long time friend of his, described him as a true 'stick and rudder pilot'. What the FAA did to him, yanking his license on trumped-up 'emergency medical' reasons, was a sin and showed how abusive the FAA can be, or at least was at that time. Someone in the FAA had an axe to grind against Hoover, and I'm not sure if they ever determined why exactly.

    It may not be heavy controls needing two hands, it may be 6 or 8 lateral Gs.
