I wonder if the door holder will come in different colours?

If that plane makes the numbers they're talking about they can paint the plane and the door holder matching hot pink, I'll still want one.

As fast as this will be you will definitely need Polar White to dissipate the heat. Joel can have his hot pink or Pepto Bismol pink accents! Don't forget to wave when you taxi by!

Fabien, you certainly can be a polarizing figure at times.

The amount of aileron bounce with his hand on the stick is extremely disturbing!

BUT THEN HE REMOVED THE WEIGHTS!?!?!?!?

OMFG! He is lucky he didn’t wreck it before first flight!

The flex you can see in those tires during that was scary. I think all of that play in those ailerons is going to kill someone if they get this in the sky. Not to knock the guy. But, he just doesn't instill a lot of confidence when one second he says "We only need the spades for higher speeds" and then watch as he about tears it into pieces at 70 kts.

When he said that I am thinking “gawd I hope he isn’t really dumb enough to REMOVE THE COUNTER WEIGHTS!” and after that he dubs in something about his last statement being incorrect. “Oh good” I thought, “He just miss spoke and quickly came to his senses.” Uh nope!

I am concerned that he is just going to add weights and not remove the slop or worry about dynamics. If it is oscillating like that at 70-80 knots (even in the first runs with spades), I worth the wings are going to rip off well before he hits his 300 knot target.

Also, keep in mind that bailing out of a pusher is not as “simple” as bailing out of a plane with the meat grinder mounted in front. This project is going to need a real special test pilot and a very well thought out test plan.

He needs to spend 100 hours in an older Bobcat skid-steer before he flies that thing!

Too bad the sock puppet hasn’t been back to defend him.

At least he’s doing something while you bench warmers watch from the sidelines. And while I watch from the right seat of my leased Pilatus.

Ok. I’m done commenting on that.

I logged some time in an old Bobcat Farmboy 440b, and never did get to the point where I could operate it smoothly!

This is crazy....
This is not an RV that you can throw around... This is actually a lot of weight and when this much mass goes to a certain speed, things take life of their own.
The way that the whole thing move is very disturbing.
When those parts get into resonance.... it is not going to be pretty.
He had a good look at reality on that last run.
When that bird gets air born things will be interesting to say the least.
