I knew it had to be spectacular....those other guys had some REALLY nice tricks. At least that 104 died proud. It was one of the first customer-purchased 104s from the first shipment...I had been on the pre-order list when they first came out...I had a lot of fun and learned a lot with that plane...and it gave a LOT of pony rides.....[tear]...but it was fun. That thing was seriously smoke-oiled and had seen a lot of flights and plenty of hangar rash.....it wasn't exactly shiny and new anymore, that's for sure, but hopefully it will be resurrected and make someone else a great plane once again.

I had a blast at the huckfest. It was nice meeting everyone , I just wanted to say thanks to everyone (3dhs, fg's , and the local club) for a good time. I tried to fly in the k50 but my plane disagreed with me. Ive never seen this happen to anyone, first problem , I fueled up the gas and smoke and let the plane sit for 45 mins till it was my turn. Went to flip it and it was like it was hydro locked I couldn't get it past compression stroke it was like hitting a wall. Finally cleared it out and got it running after several stalls. Was ready to go signaled music , took off made a left turn ( second problem) did one roll to inverted gave alittle down elevator and noticed something weird I couldn't maintain level flight it kept on going up and down on its own so now I'm over some tall trees and fighting the plane when I use elevator it's rolling alittle so on and so forth , so manage to clear trees and head back to towards me and decided its to unreliable to try and land it on the run way and I try to put it down in the field the best I could. Plopped down on a plowed field it flipped over, Not bad ,damage , broken prop small crackes in cowl and cracks in the canopy. Problem , right elevator was flapping in the breeze nothing loose just servo died I trouble Shooted it and servo wouldn't power up. Only 8-10 flights max on the brand new set of 7955's I put in the plane. Oh well it could have been alot worse.
Other then that it was an awesome time

And thanks to you for helping me getting it started, my stress level was going threw the roof.lol I thought the magical family that happened to walk out of nowhere on to the runway at the end of the field was a good sign, it gave me some needed time get cool down. lol

It's a dle 55 with a bowman ring I changed the ring before put the motor on the airframe. It's been the easiest motor ever to start before this and it's fine now.
