This is a short Vid of my FMS T 28 from last Sunday.
My brother was about to head home, and I wanted him to film the T 28 for me before he left.
In my haste to get into the air, I grabbed the battery which I had used on an earlier flight, so I lost useable power pretty quickly.
The landing was a pearler though.
