Funny u say that on 2nd euro fighter flight I had a main gear hang up, but I was about 4' off the ground and landing when I noticed it. I was pretty low on battery (my fault) so didn't want to risk another go around as I usually do a flyby to check all gears before I land. So I held her right wing up as much as possible while trying to raise the AoA and slow her down. It was a perfect landing as she touched down on her 2 working gears and slowly dropped sown on her right wing. All I can say is, add wing skids on your wing tip. It took off about 1/4" of the skid from grinding on pavement, but saved some major rash. Any how after that flight was the fateful ending to my p51. That why I packed up and left the field. I'm sooo tempes to head back out again n fly, but im fighting it. Man 3wks off from flying took its toll. From now on im flying once a wk. no matter what.

I was out at my old club a few months ago just visiting with the guys since I always fly right across the street now at the new park they put in and while I was standing behind the safety fences I had a foam Habu edf wing tip touch the back of my ear at what had to easily be 80mph and it crashed and disintegrated into a wood table right next to us... It scared the life out of us and everyone around us and actually touched my ear...

That was way too close for me then this old old guy like 212 years old comes hobbling over cussing at us that we caused him to crash because he couldn't see the runway... I yelled at him that he probably couldn't have seen the runway since the early 1940's as old as he was...

I drove home thanking Heaven I have my four 1000'x400' flying fields right across the street where no one ever flies... Sorry about your crash you'll probably have her good as new by the time our new gear arrives...

Yeah...Looks like I'm going to have to dig in the the box of tricks and Get Er' Fixed and weave some of my magic on her. Though both wings are pretty messed up?

Thats what I thought at 1st that it was an aileron roll, but I gave it a once over and that doesn't seem to be the case. All my control surfaces are where they should be... Except the elevator is pitched up more than it should be @ its neutral position. She lifted of the ground with no control input from me what so ever and seemed like the elevator caused her to want to lift off prematurely and go into a flip or roll. That's the only thing i can think of im clueless?

Fuselage is more than likely toast as the front end is smashed and split in half at the wings leading edge. So im just gonna have to get a new fuselage.
