Yeah, about 120mph in the neutral position (which is what that previous video was, notice the arms at a 90 degree angle).   I didn't do mantis position until yesterday.  Yeah, you dip your elbow to turn (one of the ways at least, there are lots of ways to do it).

This is mantis form (with added thumbs-up  ;D ) from yesterday.  Note the hands are held more in front of the face, and elbows are in front of the shoulders.  Far from perfect form demonstrated below, but I'm still learning it. :)  You can turn super-fast in this position, it's a lot of fun and I feel like I have tons more control in it.

Leaving a perfectly "good" airplane to have your forehead stamped is rather unusual.
Great job Dan.

They keep leaving the door open on these things....

Made my 50th jump today, earned my B-License.  Good times!   We're jumping out of a Caravan these days.

If we have to get a new IT guy we're not going to be real happy, Dan. You know that. Enjoy your free flights my man. Awesome.
