Hi Sam,

Great job!
Very well done!

I know just how hard it is to fly a Fournier in the modern, high-power, high roll-rate, hard corners contest scene, and your result shows just how good an aerobatic pilot you are.

Yours, Bob

Here are some pictures from Paso Robles aerobatic competition, I got 2nd place out of 6 people with one 1st place flight. I was happy with the end results especially since I beat a Yak 55 with 10 times my horse power!

Hi Sam,
congratulations! You and "the Zipper" put a real dent in the expression "there's no substitute for horsepower"- transforming it into something more like"there's no substitute for a Good Stick"- Good Job! As allways nice gloss on your 4- don´t you have bugs in California?

May the 4's be with you/ Jörgen
