Don't DLG your scratch builds with swappable motor pods :) (Good FAIL vid)

Hey Everyone (espeically the Mad Builders!)

Here we have a slope soarer/pylon racing wing. Only got it out to the field once before it intergrated itself with the field. I had a really good powered flight, screaming around. Thought to try the glider part, had a good strong wind that day so wanted to give it a good punch up into the air flow. Forgetting that the nose is swappable and not designed for any lateral forces. Unsurprisingly, the nose weight just pulled the swappable nose out part way through the launch, resulting in this:


Ha.

(No plans, or anything helpful... sorry!)
