The test flight.
Here is the video. Unfortunately he sold the wing. There was wind. Too much weight in the fuselage and wing joints too weak.
I have to work a little 'to restore it.

Oh no Such a beautifull plane. But it seems the wing was slowly bending more and more and more! Will you be able to fix her?

Congatulations are anyway due for a beautifull build of a most unusual aeroplane, and it certainly was flying very well for a while there

Ahhh, that's too bad. Sorry to see it go in. You can see the dihedral in the video increasing a little by little till the wing joint failure.
Good luck in the repairs.

Not enough scotch tape!

Well that is a bummer. I hope you try to repair it. It was a nice model.

From launch it was dutch rolling IMHO usually caused by too much dihedral and possibly CG problem ? but you may already realise that ,please take my comments as help motivated, I have had many years experience and have had similar problems, once it is corrected it will be a very good flyer from what I saw ,
cheers Lez.

Tough luck Albyone. But it did fly! I have to agree it seemed very dutch rolly, but that may have been because the wing was flexing up right from the start.

Condolences, Alby. Hopefully you can repair it. Were those weights that were being taped in to the top of the wings?
