I visited Wrens on Saturday, October 11, this year. The weather was inclement, but a few brave souls were up and about. I caught this video of Ron Awad working on a "U-Turn" landing in his dominator, using the rotor as a speed brake. It was interesting to watch:

I had some video of you, but the mist was giving me fits with my camera. Next time!

JC, you got any more footage of those turns?

Nope...I had a lot of video that had drops all over the lens and other issues, so I trashed 'em. I have some crowd shots and a few others I may be able to salvage, but that was the only one I could clean up from those landings. I filmed several, but that was the only one that really worked out. It was probably one of the best executed (IMO) examples anyway.

Great example of the maneuverability of a gyro and great demonstration of expert abilities of the pilot.
