Flew the Minivec

Well, flew my Minivec yesterday for its maiden flight. Was not too windy and I could not get it back up to the top of the hill. I asked my friend to take over (since he has flown one for years) and see if he can get it up to land. He could not either. I asked him to come in straight at us for a landing and when it did it whipped when landing and broke right behind the wing. Did not break all the way apart, just one half. Who knows what would have happened if I landed it.

Oh well, fix it and got out again on a much windier day!

Geez, where do you guys fly that causes so many broken planes?

I hope there's wind when I'm visiting in a few weeks. I want to tackle this plane-eating slope!

Lol, I flew the Weasel just fine out there the same day, but the Minivec needs more wind then the 10mph that was blowing.
