Bad Day for a Maiden Flight!

Rate this Entry
Well, after building a beautiful "Tazor" with a Stumax 110-52 on 12 cell, and nice paint job, it only lasted a minute. Extreme bad luck struck and it was a total loss.
check out the video.

    After many months building one of the nicest planes I have built, bad luck struck less than a minute after takeoff!

    The reason for the Crash was that I programed to much travel in the Ailerons, coupled with too much expo.
    this and the fact that the wind was blowing about 15 mph. The down wind run got it too far, and when it rolled violently when turning from downwind to upwind, I couldn't see well enough due to the distance and got disoriented just for a second. Thats all it took!
    I never let something like this get me down so, here is my next project: http://www.rcaviation.com/showthread...ric-Conversion
