I'm thinking the A/C is prop. So are you using smoke or are you putting enough lift into the wing to create the contrail?

Definitely some High G maneuvers. Keep us posted.

yea we are pulling about 6 right there. the smoke is basically concrete form oil injected into the exhaust at a rate of a gallon a minute. works pretty well. it has about an 8 gallon smoke tank. it lasts about 15 minutes for a routine, because you are toggling it on and off at different times for manuvers. ill have some decent outside shots sat night.

haha yea and that was a mild day. we pulled 6.5 and pushed around -3 Gs yesterday. worked on some vertical maneuvers and the only real g's you hit there is in the pull to vertical. mostly we pull a 7g up line. saturday we will tune it up a bit. im going to try to get a vid put together. problem with the wingtip camera is you have to start it from outside. so you start it before you take off and shut it off either when you land or the batteries die. which ever happens first. we have 3 go-pro hd cameras in the bird. so i cant post up the entire flight cause its such a big file. however a 10 min acro session can be edited together just gotta set up the software to do that.......... adam.........

Got any pictures from the ground? Pretty neat, I'd love to see a video of it. Also some photos of the plane would be neat...

none from the ground but im setting the wingtip camera to stills tomorrow and the cockpit cam to video. so ill have some stills from outside the plane, the wingtip camera looks back at the plane. its a pretty cool view. ill take a good one of the plane on the ground.

6 & 7g's is impressive. I can't recall any what points on the scale are significant, but I'm thinkin' you are approaching the range to need "speed jeans" / anti-g suits. It may depend on the duration, but bad things can happen real quick.

Yeah, I do want to see more pics.
