Bh p-38

In October '11, I bought this Banana Hobby P-38 from a friend. I was excited about owning my first multi-engine plane, plus it's definite cool factor! He had flown it so I assumed it flew well. Unfortunately, on my maiden flight, it took off very nicely, but as I brought it around on the downwind leg of a planned touch and go, it started to oscillate very badly. I tried to calmly get it under control, but nothing seemed to work. I passed my radio to a friend who is more experienced than me, but after 3 failed landing attempts, the plane finally spun in. We gathered all the pieces together and I took it home to fix it but more importantly, try to figure out what went wrong.
