I did that without a gyro, how do you think I made that "fly it like you stole it" video? It's super fun, just make sure you build the airplane for the rigors of what you're doing. I had a lengthy build thread detailing what I did to mine. oh, and I also shortened the length of the whole airplane about 1.5 inches..
very true, very true. this weekend i am gonna move the cg back even further and see how fast it will really flip around. and squishy i opted to put the gyro because i wanted it to be stable in slower flight also and not just for the aerobatics.
