Ok I think I will call this stupid pilot tricks or things not to do with your alfa huckbein.
I met up with Bruce and went to fly the new f86.I warmed up with my LA 7 and then the Huck.I had a touch too much reflex so it was a bit twitchy in roll axis..bruce flew his Do and his f86(tons of power) He swelled his batt again..I think that one is toast!I deside to adjust the ailerons on the huck a refly it..Much better so now I deside to show off with a low level pass over head the a nice low turn at wot...I did say looow over head.I hit my own transmitter ant. and ripped the wing off the huck.I just prayed Bruce wasnt beside me! He was wasnt..the plane rolled into the ground..I did shut down the throtle before it hit and it missed the other planes on the grass and Bruce..
Moral of the story is dont be stupid! and fly rite!
Scott
PS Bruce has some better pics from the crash site.And I also didnt get to fly the f86 because of the damage to my antenna.

It was too bad as the Huck was flying very well after your trim adjustment!
I was pretty far away and up the hill so it wasn't that close to me.
I should of taken a pic of your cracked antenna. Luckily it didn't damage the actual transmitter.
You'll have to fly at my field next time.....Much more room with no soccer nets setup!
I think you could rebuild it but it'll be kinda frankensteinish and you got a few dozen other projects to work on!

It really was just an accident, I could tell you've done that type of close low pass move before....You just need a shorter antenna!


The Mig looks good! The frozen ground not so good!

Thats John's my EDF jet buddy. Thats his second Mig and now I have the F-86 so next weekend, weather permitting, I have to defend the skies over our club field!!!

It turned out warmer today than I thought it would, a balmy 31F and slight winds. Time for the winter shorts! NOT!

It was blustery wind conditions today but not too bad plus it was around 50-55*F, Snow on the nearby mountains made for a nice panoramic scene, should've taken more pics.
Also at the field I went thru the ESC programming and found the current limiting had changed from disabled to most sensitive! Whats up with that?!?!?!
I disabled both the LVC and current limiting and no had inflight cutouts!
Flew til the power suddenly sagged, landed and removed the (puffed up again)4S pack! Yeah its pretty much toast!

Yeah, the darn weather and the crowd at the field when the weather was nice for a day has made it tough to get out and fly! LOL Maybe this Sun.

Not Dumb just uninformed so I will fix that! Its a inexpensive edf unit I purchased from balsa products ( 10 bucks) then I cut the rotor down from 75 mm to 60 to fit in the alfa housing.The walkura has 5 blades to the alfa 3 and they are larger area and have a corser pitch. So this alows me to load up the motor and get more thrust for less rpm

Well since I want to fly tomorrow I picked up two Impulse 23C 3S 1450 lipo packs that I'll put in parallel(3S2P)
Brochure rated at 23C!(33.3Amp)
So when I parallel them it'll become 3S 2900 (66.6Amp)
Weight4.6oz x 2 = 9.2oz(263gms)
Its very light for a pack that should handle 44amps or so.....
