View Full Version : Keep your plane low and close for video...Not

10-26-2008, 02:33 PM
Hey all,
Was flying the Pitts the other day trying to keep it close and low for video to send to my father (so he wont be looking at a dot for most of it), when i thought a low inverted pass would look good:red::red::red:

I know exactly how you feel, jaiwill.

I nose planted my favorite foamie profile plane trying to show some flying buddies my skills. Since showboating got my plane crashed, I named it's replacement "Humble Pie"!!:p>

It looks like the breaks are pretty clean on your bipe. Is she fixed yet?:)

Thanks Guys,
Yeh she all fixed now. The old girl has had a rough life, I bought it as a RTF the transmitter was faulty from the start (crossover between rudder/elevator). Had more crashes than flights if thats possible. Managed to do what i could for most of them to minimise carnage. Nearly binned it several times on frustration alone.....But perseverance has payed off, all on spektrum gear now never looked back. You cant really see it with that photo but both wings are broken in two places, didnt realise myself until closer examination..

Yes 5 min araldite is my friend, that stuff is awesome. Spread it thinly to keep weight down.:):)

Cheers for now....Darren

Great to hear you have pulled her back from the depths of the trash bin! Now go try that video again. :)

I know that feeling. I did the exact same thing with my Ultrafly Ultimate Bipe.

Inverted nose dive into the ground trying to make a photo pass for a buddy. A lesson learned the hard way for sure.

Glad to hear you got her all fixed up!:D
