Default F-15 Eagle first flight (sort of)

Dear Flyer,

I got my issues squared away yesterday and I was ready. I found a decent location (a bit windy and a strange compacted clay surface). It was an abandoned set of tennis courts.

Throttled up... right wheel pulled off and rolled away...plane landing gear left a nice etch in the moist clay.

Then upon leaving...disconnected the battery and one of the soddered connections pulled away from plug. Now I have to tape it on.

So...Plane is still alive and in ONE piece (for now)!

Pictures SOON!.................B

congrats on keeping her in one piece.

definitely solder that connection back on. tape will not cut it. you do not want that to come loose while airborne... If it does, bye bye F-15.
