Besides how the hell do you do a torque roll when you've gone to great lengths to eliminate the torque  ::)

If there only was THE Trouting take off ..... I'd be rocking - with the score for that I'd not have to fly anything else to win ....  !!!

You need strong musculus sphincter ani externus.
You need project X model
You need about 15deg left on the Rudder while take off - so it won't hit Steve right away.
The rest will happened itself  ::)

Be interesting to add up scores from last comp to confirm.

The scores do confirm you're all rubbish at the torque roll (but then so am I :D )

Overall averages from the first 2 comps:-
Andy - 5.5
Brian - 5.4
Paul - 5.1
BB - 4.9

BB let himself and his peeps down with a few 0's which dragged his average down, Andy was at a distinct advantage as he had 6 less opportunities to drag his average down as he didn't do the first comp.  Just from the last comp it looks like this:-

Brian - 6.1
Andy - 5.5
Paul - 5.4
BB - 4.6
