Ripping it @ the park


Ripit Revision 2.8



Took the R2.8 to the park for peg launching ..
I did mix in some right rudder ( not needed )

CG looks to be too far back ..
On launch the R2.8 tends to go down / forward / level out with no input ..
Then once it slows down it tries to lift the nose . ( Glide ) This be with a slight amount of down elevator ..
So there I was pondering how I would move the CG forward when Murphy interceded in my dilemma .

15 minutes into parking the R2.8 ...
Well I got a little energetic , and I ripped the wing off ..
So there went the R2.8 fuse flying into the air like a arrow from a bow !
Thankfully I had done some mods to distribute crash load more evenly and there was no crash damage , well apart from the relatively cleanly separated wing .

Hmmmm , thanks Murph ! Now I can correct that CG issue ...
