Broken Elevator Nearly does it again. Dynam A-10 Elevator needs modification.
Nearly lost my A-10 forever after the elevator broke for the second time. Here is video of the first time it broke a couple of weeks ago. After that crash, I was able to recreate the fuse from all the small chuncks, a bottle of gorilla glue, and a few cans of paint. I thought my elevator repair would be the last but I was so wrong....
Dynam A10 Broken Elevator on Landing ends in Disaster
(2 min 30 sec)
Today, after a high altitude loop, the plane went into a violent right roll when i tried to pull up. I tried to baby her back down by gliding with no engine power. I was nearly aligned with my landing zone when I finally lost all elevator and went crashing down. After 4 hours and nearly 4 miles of walking through the woods and dense foliage, here is the aftermath. Plane is beat up but will fly again. I will be modifying the elevator with some plywood to make it a solid piece. I will upload some video of latest crash when I get a chance. Thanks.
