Yesturday we had winds around 3 mph. So I went out to fly my new 182 for the 4+ times. I got to the air field and was so ready to fly I jumped out and began doing flight checks. After check the controls and the wind direction again I taxied out for my first flight. After a long
run up to speed it took off just like a scale flight. Then trouble occurred, I attempted several times to get altitude but she keep stealing out and was very unstable.
Everything I tried failed. All of the sudden about 30 feet in the she took a nose dive out of control and spun into the ground.
Crushed the nose in and split it open. Ripped the wing off the top of the plane along with the top of the cabin. Tore out the main landing gear and broke the front gear off again. The only undamaged area is from the back window to the tail section.
Video to come maybe if it is
Looks like a long recovery period to follow.
