After I´ve shown the making of my DFS Habicht E on ARC (http://www.arcair.com/Gal16/15001-16100/gal15013-Habicht-Bruckelt/00.shtm ) , here is now my inverted cuban eight, made from eleven decoration models from www.pureplanes.de

The aerobatic figure starts with the upside down flying SZD-54 Perkoz on the entry line. A Swift S-1 pulls down into the first loop. The LF-107 Luňák is the next in the loop, SZD-59 Acro is on the 45° upward line and begins the first half roll. A H-101 Salto finishes the half roll. The Pilatus B4 pulls down into the next loop. A MDM-1 Fox continues the loop and the Cirrus K starts the second half roll on the second 45° upward line. The Lo-100 is in the middle of the half roll and the DFS Habicht E finishes the half roll. The Fauvel AV 361 leaves the figure inverted. 

See the figure (and some more) flown with a SZD-59 Acro combined with the "wooden cuban eight" in my video: https://youtu.be/fvV9cUOAO3Q
