    I took my first aerobatics lesson in the Super D the other day.

    Still having trouble getting the stick all the way back but it was worse than usual with the parachute on. I took a video of the flight, or at least the part before the camera battery died. I really enjoyed it and found that experiencing just how much the plane is capable of gave me a new confidence flying in other planes too. I'm looking forward to more.
