Komet Acrobatic SLSA Biplane Wows Crowds

Jon Hansen and twin brother Ron, and sons Mike and Mitch and probably some other Hansens I missed, all of Hansen Air Group (must be why they call it a "Group") were besieged by excited showgoers eager to learn more about the new FK12 Komet.
 It's made by the same German company that has produced so many fine microlight and LSA aircraft, including the FK 9 Mk IV and ELA, and should satisfy that niche of sport pilots eager to fly acro, since there are few such light sport birds out there.
You can get more details on the German site, but here's a quick taste of what you can expect flying this acrobatic SLSA from Jon Hansen and son Mike.

Yeah, Fk is doing great, but I wish Hansens brought us some good news on Sky Arrow. That thing was quite nice in its own way.

Well, I'm an idiot. Here I do a video with several shots of the word Comet all over the sides of the fuselage...and I spell it Komet.
Apologies to thinking people everywhere.
