Corsair is broken. Wing on one side is nearly broken off. I was trying to get a slow landing in. I added a touch of throttle and the plane rolled left and caught the wing tip.
A lot of paint chips on the cowl. I think I will try to repair the wing. A new one is $90.

I think it was torque roll.

Double ouch. I hate that when it happens. I have had a few planes that would tourqe roll with the application of throttle.
You got any pic's

Here is a video of my Kid flying his EF Extra 300 EXP.....Nothing too crazy as it was the 2nd flight but it's an amazing plane. One click of trim was it, hehe

Our Corsair guys call that the "Ground Loop", they happen on take offs and landing with those planes. Got to land um hot.

Nice plane. I was suprised that it was a 6 Cell, which Turnigy motor, looks like it kicks it great.

Man the Rangers really went bananas last night. I have never really been a baseball fan but that was really fun to watch.

Yeah Tom that boy of yours is a good pilot.
The plane is really nice too.
I got 3 flights in this evening with the little 540.
I switched to a smaller prop but it didn't help the squealing any. I do have an Omega 72 on the way though.
I havn't been able to nail the KE spin with this plane yet.
It was still alittle breeze this evening and I didn't head out to the flying field, instead I just went down the street a few blocks to fly. I may try again tomorrow.
O Waldo Waldo where are you

Kerwin, thanks for the kind words and glad you got some flights in! We basically got 2 flights in (I flew my 48" Edge) and the wind really picked up so we packed it up. Glad to get a couple in anyway because Saturday we got Zero

I hope that new motor works for you and you get that thing sorted out!

I think my daughter watched that cartoon. The theme song was annoying.

No pics of the Corsair yet. I don't know if I will repair or replace.
