I just did exactly what brian did today on my first flight ever. My little J3 Cub came down in pretty good shape though. I don't have a pic, but my buddy got it on video and I'll try to get it from him to post.

I hate maidens

Took the porter for the first flight -a bit breezy but I thought, the sun is shining, gotta give it a go!

Three and half seconds later, having caught a gust under the left wing(combined with a slightly too rearwards C of G), she nosedived from approx 60 feet, right wing down.

Thats it I thought, 2 months of work to assemble a self-kitting aircraft!

Surprisingly, the ony damage is to the Right wing front mounting tab-the screw hole was elongated by 2 mm -absolutely no other damage

lessons learnt: need a bigger prop, rebalancing Cof G forward 5 mm and never maiden on a breezy day!

Photo is just before takeoff and of only area of damage. If this was a foam job, I would have been gathering small bits from all over the place- balsa rules
