So typical. I took my Miss Stik out for a maiden. It took off but flew left wing low and I had a small "incident" landing it. So what do I do, well try again, as if it would somehow do better without correcting the problem. So I crashed it a little worse, knocked the bands of the wing. Done yet, heck no. The third crash knocked of the windshield and broke a little of the leading edge of the wing. OK, OK, lets quit. But first make sure to get the tail caught on the screen door on the way into the house and break it completely off. Made quite a mess in a fairly short time!

Sorry, but that wasn't too smart....which I know and speak from "not being smart" experience. We just never learn sometimes.

What the dog didn't eat it and the house didn't burn down?!

Thanks to the both of you. You made me feel better after my crash at lunch today.
