...and my first fiery crash!
Finished my very first build tonight, a FT Nutjob. Of course, I had to go test it out. Since it was dark for 2 hours the only place to go was the high school parking lot. The runway was a little rough, some structural problems with the wheels, but by golly, it lifted into the air like a champ. Then dove hard left into the pavement. Only lost the landing gear and battery came off. Decided what the heck, lets hand launch this sucker. Again, it started beautifully. Gained about 15 ft when it dawned on me I didn't realllly know how to fly. Had a 50% chance on guessing which way the elevators needed to go. Guessed wrong. Kissed the pavement once again. Amazingly, all I lost was the prop.
It was beautiful.
