 That is so cool! Looks like a Japanese zero coming in on a strafing run. After I finish my cruiser, the 650 RG might be my next challenge.

While a fly-by is an inspiring view, some of us techie geeks want to see a video of the gear cycling and the internals so we can see the engineering marvels that make this thing work!  :-)
