I totaled my old F4U Corsair this weekend, I crashed that thing 3 times in 2 years and all 3 times it was an elevator malfunction. The last crash was the worst, the elevator stuck in the “up” position, all I could do was loop and smack the ground. I bought a replacement F4U a few months ago and built it this weekend, it's basically the same except I put blocks in the fuselage to keep the rod from flexing and binding, not just glue it to the inside wall like the instructions say. The video is of the 1<SUP>st</SUP> and 2<SUP>nd</SUP> flight, it was one of the best maidens I’ve ever had. I had the camera Velcro’ed to my hat, it’s a miracle it was in frame at all. I removed the sound since thru most of it all you can hear is me calling my dog, the plane itself is really quiet (Skatty brushless motor).
