That was one sweet landing. Even had me all smiles like...YES!!! I think I would have dropped my radio after I seen my wing go for its own maiden.

Your definitely in the minority, most people would have been bringing that plane home in a trash bag. Great job!

Wow, quite an endorsement for Real Flight and getting in LOTS of practice with the 'flight failure mode' activated.

I see I still need a lot more practice,

There is absolutely no way I'd have believed this if I hadn't seen this for myself. I've flown planes with only one wing on your RealFlight G3.5 sim, but I always attributed the ability to do so to a bug.

To say I'm impressed is an understatement. Let us know when the model gets fixed properly and gets back in the air.

Hello Jim,

Great catch. Pretty awesome.

QUOTE:
"I've practiced the scenario on the RealFlight simulator many times, and I credit that experience with my ability to bring it in wheels down. I never thought I'd get a shot to do this in real life."

How does one tell the G4 simulator to specifically "break" one wing off? Your reply or a link explaining would be most appreciated.

Thanks

nice flying Jim.

@ nioa, if you reduce the strength multipler of the main wing to about 30. One wing will normally break off. You just need to build up speed and do a quick move like a roll.

Great save - great flip onto the strip (imagine the nose over if it was on the grass).

Great vid.
