Maiden flight and landing were excellent. Second flight...Not so much
The runway was almost clear of icy clutter, so decided to fly. The maiden flight and landing, flawless...The second flight, not so much. Everything was fine until it was time to land. I got it over the runway threshold and this guy's dog decided it was time for a grand game of "fetch." The owner called him off, but it unnerved me enough to bounce the landing and bust a prop. Power-on wheel landings (on the two mains) are a challenge because there's only a about 1/2 inch of clearance between the prop fan and the pavement when the tail wheel is off the ground. Best to shut down the motors or try for 3-point landings. This plane flies really stable and has lots of power. Most of the flying today was at about 50% throttle.
