I have watched many people on youtube & read alot of post on how the harbor cub from Harbor Frieght. Is under powered and you can't take off from the ground so I have always hand launched my cub till today I did
try a ground take off just to see if the plane can take off from the ground
well it will but now my nickname is George of the jungle.(Look out for that ...).
I have seen/heard the same thing. It was good to se it take off from the ground like that. As soon as I seen them trees to your right and the plane go that way I Cringed for ya. Hope you get her fixed up and back up soon
Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
If I stood by that tree with a chainsaw I would be looking for a plane small enough for a county jail cell since thats a county tree LOL. I have another place to go fly that is treeless so I can do a few ground take offs.
Airmail thats great advice & others have givin it too! I'm sure if I do make a right the tree will beat me there and be waiting for me. It looks clear in the video but If I were to turn to my right I was closer to a baseball field at home plate so there was a tall fence for me to hit which was closer than the tree. I picked the wrong spot all togather.
After seeing it lift off from the ground which I did not expect it to do after reading fourms & looking at youtube videos I just got too excitied of the lift off I didn't think about the trees jumping up and grabbing my little cub mean ol tree. At least it's a cheap priced plane and not a kit I put hours into building. That would be the worse for me. And it's not a 170.+ rtf. My best crash was my honey bee fp I hit the backboard of the basketball goal and the copter fell in the net I just don't know If I was far away for it to be a 3 pointer or just 2 points.
I for got to you all the ones who say turn right next time this is a Nascar Cub. LOL I raced rc cars for many years most was dirt oval turn left. I seem to always go to my left. I need to break that habit even with the sims and thats a good place to start. I thank all of you for the comments.
