FT Simple Cub maiden and CRASH!

Yup, finally got some maiden flight airtime for the FT Simple Cub (3ch). And I even managed to get a crash out of it too on this maiden. So takeoff was pretty uneventful and the flight started out fine. But the wind picked up and I needed to bring her around to go back the other direction (towards the camera). To help combat the wind I flipped up to my high rates and apparently I must have had my high rates too high over the recommended settings. Ended up overcontrolling it until it finally hit the ground. Despite the sound of the crash, damage was pretty minimal.

The camera angle was not great as I was expecting to fly closer to the camera...but as you can see that didn't quite happen! I'll be testing out a new head camera setup here soon so hopefully angles will get a little better. But for right now, you can enjoy this distant brief maiden flight and smack on the pavement.
