I took it out for a "Taxi Test" today with no intention of flying, while on my third run at some speed to see if she would track straight she must have caught some wind because she just lifted off in a slow steady climb!!! She flew!!! I thought I'd land immediately but didn't have enough room straight ahead so I did a slow bank to left bringing her around back towards me. now heading my way began a slow gentle decent from about 30 ft high to land everything was looking real good with a nice glide slope to land . When all of a sudden "BANG" I hit a no parking sign (about 8 ft tall standing in a tire, 1-1/4 pipe you know the type)!! tore off the port wing and cracked the engine mount nacelle she is hot glued back together alredy and ready for her real maiden!! with video rolling. I'm happy and mad at the same time, but my bad for taxiing at a closed department store parking lot, good for taxi but bad for flying!!!

You won't have to look hard, I'll post a vid of the first "real" flight, but it's been 20 MPH winds here the last two days and don't expect to get her out until mid week!
