DustOff #6 - HK FW190 WarBird Kit - Too much Wind & Crash!

Well, I certainly debated with myself whether or not to launch this plane.
I's pretty draggy and has a large profile for the wind to push.
The wind was 5-8mph on the ground and felt like 10-15mph approx. 30 feet in the air.
Plus, the wind was 90 degrees to my runway ;-)
This is one of those days where I should have packed up and gone home.
Needless to say I didn't pack up but I did crash.
If I didn't fly in significant wind I wouldn't be flying much at all where I live, so I'm marginal often in the wind ;-)

This Kit is discontinued but they still have the F6F Hellcat ;-)
