My first casualty of 2012

Took the PZ P-47 out for a quick flight during lunch today. The tail had gotten a little beat up riding in the trunk of my car so it was out of trim.

Flew about half a pack while fiddleing with the elivator trim to get it to quit diving when uprite. Thought I had it set , stupidly checked the inverted flight on a low pass instead of up high. Had too much up trim so it started to drop as soon as I flipped it. The idiot behind the transmitter immediatly pulled 'up' to stop the dive, You know the rest......

Who never did that? This is the reason I take time to practice inverted flying to burn it into my brain that while inverted those elevator controls are inverted too!
