i completely destroyed my spitfire

spiraled in from relatively low - i had been concerned that it was out of trim - landed beautifully, checked the trim against the transmitter settings, made sure the controls were fine, and was still dissatisfied as i took off again because it kept tracking to one side

after the post mortem, all the bits work fine, so i doubt radio failure as no other transmitters likely where i fly

my surmise is that in adjusting the trims at too low a level while going too slow, i tip stalled and the rest is now history

pity, because i love(d) that plane
