More Micro Lil Ripper Action

We had a decent clear day finally and I got my buddy to film for me. Here's the Micro (13" WS) lil ripper. We like to say that you aren't really flying it, but just keeping it from hitting the ground.

Indeed.

I have a buddy who is getting a laser cutter in a few months. I'm hoping to get him to cut me another micro so I can rebuild this one with more precision. It's such a great little plane to just keep in my truck and fly anywhere.

Bad Maiden

Soooo, I know I posted my build pics a while ago, but never got to maiden my plane...until yesterday. I was bound and determined to fly yesterday, no matter what the circumstances. All my favorite flying areas were populated so drove around 45 minutes checking alternative sights. Long story short, it was real windy yesterday 10-15mph so I probably shouldn't even have been out there. Wind took her, pulled her down wind and I was between 3/4 to full throttle just to get her back near me all the while she would get flipped over and pushed farther away. After fighting for a couple minutes, got close enough to attempt a landing, wind grabbed ahold and flipped her nose first into the ground. Surprisingly, a very clean break right in half behind the trailing edge through the whole fuse. Easily repairable, but not a good first flight

Aw man that's a bummer. I've had days like that where the signs keep telling me not to fly but I do it anyway and it seems like I get similar results as you.
The good thing is that is an easy fix for sure.

Sorry to hear about the maiden, Levictus. I don't know hoe it's possible, but the paint on that plane looks even better now. I guess in your last pictures, I couldn't see the level of detail and precision you put into the artwork. Nice job. Get her fixed up and go again.

I augured my Lil' Ripper in on the maiden as well, but now that I fixed it, She's been a great flier and damage free for a good long time.

Thanks Stick...I really like how the scheme came out on this one. I will repair her soon and go flying on a much calmer day

Nice job adgnade.
I've used the MPF foam on a couple of builds now too. It's not as stiff as normal depron so it handles crashes better.
