Crashed Mine

The instructions on the kit version were the same as the RTF version. It didn't explain what type of servos to use, speed control, etc. It also didn't explain how to secure the wings properly. I had a feeling that I should have glued the carbon fiber tube into the wells on the wings just in case.

My first flight was a disaster. I launched it, it went straight up (good thing...plenty of power). It was a windy day and the plane wasn't terribly responsive (needed more dual rates). Then the wings began flapping like a bird (should have glued them on). Needless to say I didn't have a great maiden flight. The good news is that the plane glided well (until I lost sight of it) flapping it's wings like a wounded duck.

I found was repairable, but I decided to just buy another one and build it to my specs.
