Night flying last night, I turned too low to the ground and put her in. Going to start putting it back together sometime next week. I took my eyes off the ground for a couple of sec to look at the radar screen. Wont be doing that again at 50ft.

The .001 lux camera from Readymade was working great. Sorry, no video. I dont have anyway to rec yet.

<<<< EDIT >>>>

New firewall is in, fuse is fixed. Just have to rebuild the wing, glass/paint the cowl, install the pan/tilt and put it back together. Wont have time for that till Wed or Thurs.
