The most impressive was R.Montiels Fascination cross country glide.

Anything else is just a matter of time and who has the biggest petrol tank. So these records don't really excite me much any more. I know it takes lots of hard work and dedication to do it, I just don't think it's a a big of an achievement.

Yes to be honest R.Montiels was to me a better achievement doing all that with no power used other than servos, that was an amazing flight.

This one is a point and shoot affair, although I couldn't take credit away for the record
