AFT felt absolutely fine would not consider not fitting one.If I build another I think it would be the T-45 after having a stupidly overpowered 70mm Sapac the navy marking seemed much more visible.

Ouch! Sorry Gaz. But she did fly fine eh?

OH Gaz..............What can I say.....Bugger

After such a long wait, that just terrible. I think mine will just sit in the workshop as I don't think I will live long enough to learn to fly it.
Makes you wonder sometimes if they are worth it , foamies survive better most times.

With hind site so many things i would have done differently as it was a maiden i wanted to be behind the aircraft for the bungee launch should have released from the flight line then i would not have been trying to walkabout I did not want to land off the runway as it had been cut and left in piles to mulch.but watching the video i can see i am going over our boundaries ever few seconds as a golf club now has part of the area we have planning for you can see that i keep turning well that is all to try to keep within our airspace it's about half what it was a year ago.

They eat up the sky and if you slow down they fall out of the sky.
I usually have the field to myself when I maiden but on normal club days we have to have another pilot with us (club rule) and I have been guide back of the strip a few times. Does not help that your flying space had changed, so you had more than normal to worry about.
Have you ordered the replacement yet.....

Ah... Dassault ingeneers are used to say that a pilot is 50% more stupid when he flies... More seriously, that's a good thing to get some good help from an other pilot during maiden flights to keep an eye on some non-essential parameters. You can be 100% concentrated on the basics (that's not too much...).

I was thinking of these for my T45 and grass is all I have, did the strut break? Please keep me posted if bigger wheels helped
