Well I finally got around to giving this a try, I have been practicing a lot on the sim and was 95 percent sure I could pull this off. As a result not only did I pull off a loop but a dozen or so, and over the course of the next 4 tanks got in some rolls and (relatively) stationary flips as well as rolling while moving forward(not sure if this is called a barrell roll or has a different name?) all in all I am really excited, I have decided to go ahead and get the 50 that I have been on the fence about, I did try two consecutive forward flips and the poor old OS32 just couldn't keep up. Below are some pics courtesy of BisonFlyer.
Can't wait to get out and do some more! Thank again for all your help and support, couldn't have gotten this far without RR.

btw, can anyone read the headspeed on the tach in that last photo? figured I would fine tune my headspeed before I attempted the loops, forgot to take that little guy off :-)

Grats....
Great job...

As soon as I get my Rappy 50v2 back in the air, I am going to try my hand at rolls. I can do loops with no problems. Keep up the good work.

Hehe, thanks Ted, but I guess you haven't seen any close ups of my canopy I think she is about do for a repaint!

I do think the tail stripe is a nice touch though, am I the only one that likes this?

EDIT - I think this explains why my landing struts are starting to rust
