@ OIA (a.k.a; South Port Community Park Area)
Well, I had an extremely enjoyable Sunday morning at the South Port Community Park (Across the Street) on a empty Asphalt Parking Lot that the NAVY reserve at time uses.
FIRST FLIGHT / 1st Video:
The Model was flown at a higher rate of speed as taking recommendation from Dave (dbc) to keep this airframe happy and wow, what a RUSH! The model performed beyond my expectations in a location that I can land this model from almost any direction.
I am still amazed how FAST this model "is" with just 3-Cells, 2200mAH, Lithium Polymer batteries. Oh, yes, those there at this flying site also took high degree of notice and they were surprised as well that it was just a 3-Cell operation.
2nd FLIGHT / 2nd Video:
I don't fly frequently at this location and I am more an RC Club flyer with familiar surroundings and without any obstacles. In my 2nd flight I became just transfixed on the beauty of this model and its super flying characteristics that I lost concentration and became a spectator for a split second and allowed the model to zoom downward too low and too much down range where there's an ugly Palm Bush.
I was the one who was yelling, "Oh, NO!!!" at the last few seconds as I finally realized what was going to happen.
I was shocked that there was NOTHING major broken and considering that I allowed this model to crash into this Palm at a high rate of speed. The Right Aileron was not damaged nor its servo, just the push rod went beyond the plastic servo horn and I do believe this saved the servo itself. All the energy went with the push rod and plastic horn. All I had to do was carefully slide the Right Aileron Push Rod back to its position and carefully bend the plastic horn.
I did a careful Post CRASH check and both EDF's still work perfectly and all the servos and including the retracts. Therefore, all systems are still GO.
Limits of the Airframe Damage was the nose area and bottom frontal FUSE of which have been and still in repairs.
Okay, a few Videos and Pictures.
1st Flight / 1st Video: (Sorry, the Cowboy hat setup was not perfect!)
2nd Flight / 2nd Video: (Here the Cowboy hat was perfect but, it captured the crash)

Still flying the TAR out of my Beloved Park Zone P-47 Thunderbolt and still powered with the Park Zone 480 brushless motor, Retracts and Flaps.
