 Post subject: Rolling a Folbot

Paul aka BrazilBrasil on p-net sent me pictures of his new Cooper.

One of the pictures is a video of him rolling it. I found it to be interesting.

Link is here.

Looks like a nice easy roll. The least beamy of the Folbots out there. I would guess he would have a lot more trouble in a Kodiak or Yukon.

Once I learned to roll in a "seayak", and got it down reasonably well,
I could roll my Aleut pretty good. Once it comes through that 90deg point in the rolling arc the primary stablity of the craft "sticks" the roll solid.

I still never considered it a recovery though, just a trick.
