In 1929 a Lady Pilot with the name Ingalls set up a record by doing 344 loops in succsesion with a Gipsy Moth, the immediate predecessor of the Tiger Moth !!! Should be easier with a model Aeroplane ?
If it is not fun doing,it is not worth doing !!!

Nah - was aiming for it to appear insane so that it would be viewed as being an example only. Will put up the same challenge as a real one.
