Here's my short maiden flight. 10-17 MPH winds, and temps in the teens. Camcorder was messed up at first - I inadvertently left it in manual mode from shooting some nature clips in low light. When my friend started filming, it oversaturated. So, I had to cut out about 2-3 minutes of good aerobatics, and some close-in flying. Nearly lost feeling in all of my fingers by the time I landed. Hope to get more video sometime soon. Need a set of skis, I think...

Here's one of me hiting a tree on final with my 1/4-scale Super Cub. I was just flying along, shooting scale touch-and-gos, when this tree got in the way. It's the only tree near the runway, and I managed to hit it.

I figured the wing would be mush, but the only signs of the encounter were a small hole in the fabric and a chipped blade. The Dynaflite Super Cub is one tough bird!
