Not really....

The gear had a tiny tiny tiny, hardly visible crack in it before the flight that I thought would be OK. Wrong


Had just completed a load of flips, was starting to throw in some piros too and then into a big fast loop intending to piro at the top. As I applied rudder at the top she just lost head speed as the gear striped. Hit throttle hold, flipped upright and autoed down. Changed underpants.

No damage apart from gear. My fault for thinking it would be OK.
