Landing platform #4

Today's test flight used landing platform #4. This time it was another simulated payload on the skid platforms but with one end open. Jack Crossfire would take off vertically and land like an airplane. Landed successfully 4 out of 5 times with this setup.

Two wires provided to help line up the approach were worthless. Landing was only possible by lining up with the opening, pushing forward, and cutting throttle when over the skid platforms. Failure to cut throttle in time resulted in one crash.

Stresses on the payload were too high to use this for camera mounting. The narrow opening allowed landing in any orientation without trapping the skids but made the lineup harder. It sure made for some spectacular flying.

Total flight time: 16 minutes.
