A little update. The SC is nestled safely in the top of a 75ft tall tree. No way it's coming down. I considered cutting the tree down but realized wielding a chainsaw on public school grounds probably wasn't a good idea. Is it wrong that I was tempted?
Now, some may say this was foolish but I bought a PZ T-28D that I have successfuly maidened. I did however smack the ubiquitous soccer goal on my third landing. Ripped the wing right off the fuse. Some glue and tape and she's ready to go again. Looking forward to flying again this evening if the wind will die down some.
