Being an RSDT (Roulette System Developer & Testpilot), is sometimes a rough hobby with many dangers that could only be declared as the actions of a madman.  Albert Einstein supposedly once said that the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result.

An RSDT has to have a good knowledge about the factors involved in complex systems of pattern generation, enormous patience, highly analytical skills and yet an open creative Mind,  sensitive to new ideas, as a boosting inspiration to his or hers own R&D.

This of course  with the "Testpilot-phase" which due to its adrenalin addictive dangers, demands a truthfullness (to him- or herself), combined with a complete fearlessness, once the system is taken for a testdrive beyond the confines of virtual tests with funny money into REAL LIFE Casino,  that IF you make errors due to personal weaknesses, or if your System has the slightest flaw in its structure, the casino will take your money AND YOU WILL CRASH AND BURN.

You here, who know what I am talking about, are a resilient bunch. You are,  what a good movie once called, a wild and tough bunch of the "RIGHT STUFF".

Here is a nice excerpt from an old movie, reminding you what you are dealing with.

<iframe width="480" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/q3BMg99K_o0]https://www.youtube.com/embed/q3BMg99K_o0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

At 00:15, your system is rolled out for a test flight.

At 00:33 you take a last look at her before you enter her and take her for a ride into the skies (the casino)

At 01:05 You have a last discussion about her abilities,  with a good friend whose knowledge you respect, before you take her up.

At 02:44 you tax out ready to punch a hole in the sky. (sitting down at the table).

At 03:33 you fire up the main engine of the system as you have logged necessary data from the wheel, concentrated on your first bet.

At 03:41 with the engine at 90% throttle, you release the brakes, and there she goes. She takes off nicely, you first bet was a win.
At 04:30 your system starts to soar, the winnings keep coming in. You keep pushing the envelope.

After a first leveling her out,  as the casino starts to shaking your system, you enter phase 2,  where you go full throttle at 05:50.You push the afterburner to ride the uncertainty wave being now in your favour.

At 06:42 she starts to refuse go higher, starts to buckle wildly... the engine starts to hack and you go "Christ allmighty!" as you loose power and air speed. All the warnings systems go red and the danger alarm of STALLING is filling your cabin. Your system has a flaw....the casino is murdering it.

You start to go down, everything is whirling, the negative g-forces are starting to ripping your body.

You decide in a split second, its time to bail out, pulling the handle between your legs and you find yourself outside the casino walking home. Just to come back another day, with your next queen of the skies.

Enjoy the movie.
regards

This is not possible for security reasons. I added it for you.
