Very good day for wind. Blue skies and 50mph average and building all the time.
NOT a good day for me. Transmitter quit itself before leaving this morning. I have no idea what is wrong with it. Luckily the guy that came up with me had his DX6i in the car, so I bound the windburner to that. Tried to set it up about right.
Launched it off and after some trimming was feeling ok. The transmitter wasnít feeling that good though, a much cheaper transmitter with long sticks (I fly thumbs) that I was struggling to come to grips with.
Burner was ripping though! Really fast, but wasnít getting good readings as I was finding it hard to fly with the rates not right, and funny feeling thing in my hand. Only flew for a few min and towards the end I was starting to get more used to it and was putting in some better laps. Thought I must be nearly at 300 if not past it. I started getting flutter somewhere. Now my linkages are pretty tight, well more so than anything else I have, so I think it was the fin. When flutter was happening I was getting rolled and bumped out. I pushed a bit too low at the top and got tipped a little and I couldnít react fast enough and it went in at at LEAST 260+mph. It was a grazing impact and what was left ended up around 100m from first point of touch.
My radar man came up to see me to tell me I got 269. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! You serious! He said he never picked up the fast laps. Bugger!
Didnít bind and fly the D60 as I thought better of it. Shame, as the wind was increasing all the time. Gave up and headed home, rather dissapointed
