Taking a new bird out this afternoon,wish me luck!


I'll be tearing up the sky a little later on with my Champion 45L...Hopefully the sky is the only think I'll be teatring up too

Anyhow my only worry is that it can take off from grass alright. Its landing gears are kinda fragile. One of the landing gear mounts in the wing broke last night when it went over a bump as I was taxxiing around the 'hood last night.

Anyhow,if worse comes to bad,I'll just have my cousin hand launch the 5 lb sucker for me

I would go with the hand launch. That way you would at least have a chance since it will be flying to start with. I have extra light, thin, flimsy landing gear on my old timer to save wait and make it SAM legal. I always hand launch it.
