Yep I'm guilty of old age I guess, and besides, the "Y" is right net to the "T".

If you listen carefully you can hear the landing gear clip the ground. I remember that flight quite well too.

We need a new thread - crazy hand launches. I had it in my brain to make a fast plane, so I put a crazy heavy high Kv motor on a wing with a heavy 4S battery.

I call the plane bat-sh*t crazy.

Well I filmed a hand launch that went 1-inch from the ground at crazy velocity, complete with over-compensating crazy left-right movements, then straight towards couple huge trees, somehow swerved did a 90 degree turn all the while out of control, missed branches by couple inches, then straight up, somehow survived.

Vid Complete with my wife saying "that was gnaarly"....... I need to post somewhere.

Like this launch from my FB a while back. Just watch his hand and body movements on takeoff. Hilarious.

I can't find the video but the first flight of my P51 started with a big loop from the hand launch just missing the ground as it pulled out. Cause nowhere near enough down thrust and too much power for a first flight. Lesson learned , take it easy on the power on the maiden flight. Served me well on subsequent models

You guys really need to try the V tail ( just give it a try ) … It works Super and it’s really easy to set up …110 degrees . Dare I say it may ( or may not ) improve the airflow over the circular wings, uninterrupted by elevator / elevons /whatever… Crumbs for thought …

Maybe you had some condensation built up in the pitot tube like this one.

(The pilots ejected and were okay.)
