Night flight captain !

I maidened mine yesterday. Went to a Distribution Center park with a buddy so I could start her off on a paved runway. All went well initially. Smooth take off roll with slight left torque on rotation. Flew a few circuits. Hardly any trim required. Then, a minor mishap. Lost elevator completely. She tracked along a glideslope as I chopped the throttle and disappeared past the parking lot into some tall reeds. Will try to load a short vid later.

When I found her, there was practically zero damage. The wing detached from the fuse.

Note to self: Preflight checklist . Make sure rod linkage is tightly connected to horn. The screw had come loose.

A few quick repairs and she'll be airborne again in no time. Nice flying plane.
