Great flying!

Do you have to count the # of loops you do in one direction to untwist the wires the other way

Do you have throttle control?

Yes Kevin, I usually do three loops each way, to keep them untwisted. Excessive twisting may even lead to loss of control. We also check the lines before each flight.
There is no throttle control. It would be very difficult to react with the necessary speed. I use a timer-governor to keep Rpm constant.

Great flying. I like how the lines stay tight when it is high.

I calculated the g-force for the speed and radius. It is around 2.7gs. It means at the top of the dome it still has about 1.7gs of centrifugal acceleration keeping the lines taut.
