Flying my Precison Aerobatics Extra 260 48"

Here's a hatcam clip of me flying the PA Extra at our club field. Nothing fancy - just some lazy flying. Couldn't have asked for better flying wx!

Here's a clip of me stuffing the Extra while screwing around with low & slow flat-turns. Got a bit too slow. Stalled the inboard wing & snapped right into the deck.
Good thing she missed the asphalt.
Found a couple of popped joints in the starboard wing, right at the root - but the front-end/motorbox/landing-gear seem to be fine. Didn't even damage the c/f spinner. She's a tough bird, for sure.

I'd rather be flying!
I'm a middle-aged, techie-type of guy who refuses to 'get old'. I grew up in an aviation family. I spent hundreds of hours flying with my dad, who retired with ~33,500 hours. I learned to fly full-scale when I was 9. I've been flying RC since 1984.
