I'm not sure how many RC pilot's are into Full scale aerobatics. This being my first post and myself an aerobatic pilot I have no knowledge of the RC world, I use realflight because the flight characteristics are unmatched by any other PC game or SIM and it gives me the chance to work through sequences when I'm not in the air. Anyways...... back on topic, recently accomplished aerobatic competitor and Airshow pilot Paul Lopez passed away in an accident while flying in his MX2 unlimited aerobatic aircraft, and I was wondering if anyone was working on an MX2 yet? It would be awesome to have his aircraft...
Just a thought. RIP Paul.

While the world will truly miss a great performer, and it is sad it happened, it is even sadder to learn that some one else died in the crash of the MX2 unlimited aerobatic aircraft
Words like Unlimited, Invincible, and Unsinkable are just words. Start believing they are any thing else, other then just words and you'll find your doom.

" Nadine Sheehan of Zephyrhills went to buy strawberries from a grower and witnessed the accident.
"He did two loop-de-loops then leveled off," Sheehan said. "Then he went straight up in the air, over the cloud and came back down. He started spinning and went straight down. The plane just burst into flames. They didn't have a chance."
Neighbor Larry Englert said Lopez routinely practiced the same spin and dive maneuver, which requires the pilot to reduce power. Englert said it sounded like Lopez cut the engine and then couldn't restart.
Authorities have not released the name of the second victim, but Lopez alluded to the guest Sunday when he updated his Facebook page. He wrote that he was "practicing and getting ready for a special guest to come from CA. Imagine Tango Charlie."
As for making a RC to match this aircraft, it is just like any other request. If you can provide us with some good pictures, top, front, and side I sure some one will take on the project.
PS. Just my thought, but if your truly an aerobatics full scale pilot, I sure hope you think about Paul before you place a loved one or a friend in any unnecessary danger.
