I was out of town for a week so no flying!
Yesterday a bunch of the electric club members met and flew in the wind. 10-15MPH crosswind, woo hoo! Overall a very good day for us, with one exception. One of our guys flew his new 59" 3DHS Slick and on the 3rd or 4th flight he crashed it very hard, looks to be 100% loss. I think he had the rudder separate from the vert stab. It looked as though the top and bottom CA hinges pulled out and then snapped the middle one (or two?). There were traces of wood on the 2 that pulled out. He did the CA-ing as per the manual, so ....... Just a bad deal for him!
