Onboard Video - SS turning into a Lawn Dart
This was a textbook lawn dart Slow Stick. I didn't have a still camera to take a picture once it was planted into the soft ground, but it was a good 4 inches down and sticking straight up.
It was a windy day but not too bad. It was tossing the plane around a bit and then a gust of wind caught it which flipped it over. No big deal, but when I tried to get it level I lost the elevator. The plastic clip that holds on to the arm on the bottom of the elevator popped off and then I couldn't do anything from there except wait for it to hit the ground.
The camera survied without a scratch. The fuse is bent up in so many places I can't even count. It even has a wooden dowel inside it! It looks like a crumple-zone on a car.
