    It was actually very stable. They didn't do anything aerobatic...but very stable and scale like flight. It is from CARF and it sounds like they've done a ton of work getting it to fly that way...and have the instructions so that anyone buying can also set it up correctly.

    I think they said it had 3 gyros! Since there is no rudder, and instead has drag flaps on the outer wing tips to create the yaw (scale), they had to add a gyro just for takeoff, taki, and landing. That gyro is hooked to the brakes so that they can help control directional stability on the ground. Overall, it sounded like a complex setup but one which has been ironed out in advance for anyone wanting to fly it.

    Also, it is painted in the mold so it is done when you get it!

    We arrived yesterday a few seconds too late to see the B2 fly up close. I could see it from a distance as we walked to the main fight line.
