RC Mafia: The Hit is on

Yippee!

Addicion X flying with one wing only - RC Mafia video


What do you do after a mid air collision and flying around with a damaged wing? Of course you land, mount the good wing onto the other, the damaged side. The only problem: now you are short of one wing... Not a problem for Radio Rookie and the RC Mafia

Lol! Thanks guys. Yup the landing was a little off. Pretty hard to judge from a distance and snagged the wing tube on the grass.

Ha Ha, thank you. We just released a movie last week (Madtricks) so the next one will come only in a few weeks time. My wife would kick my a$$ if I spent any more time on the computer editing

Ah, that looked far worse than it actually was. On a RC Mafia Carnage scale it was barely a 4/10. The landing itself was great. It was just the wing tube which caught the grass (or vice versa...)

Hey Dan,

Yes to my surprise it was stable in the straight and level with a kind of feel like doing a normal KE on the small Addy on a windy day. The turns however were quite tricky as it needed a lot of space and felt not very responsive. This time without the wing, it tends to roll with the application of the elevator in the turn causing it to loose height pretty quick.

The KE loop as to my complete surprise felt identical as doing with both wings. I would still want to explore whatelse is possible with one wing and see how far I can get away with it.


Having said that, flying with one wing is visually disorienting and I found myself having to pause and think.

It's loads of fun. Give it a try.

Cheers

RR

Thanks for the heads up just watched it, awesome production! (as usual) Did you film the intro in your "office"

Loved the onboard, loved the crashes, loved the PA likes this..... did i say i liked the onboard?

Every time i see one of your vids i promise myself a AMR. I might just have to pull the trigger this time..... But then the purple addy x looks fantastic.

Really appreciate the effort you put in, it really shows.....

I remember you have an Addiction with LEDs in them...I'm sure it would have made for some awesome footage as well and I'm sure BT would agree too
