How not to fly your new RC plane
I was pretty eager to go fly a new plane I built. The weather seemed pretty good at the house, so I grabbed the boys, and the toys, and headed out to the field. As soon as I left the car, I knew it was to windy to fly, but I’m not one to give up, even when I should.
Of note, the magic of soft sand, and strong materials, I was able to fly this plane (much better the 2nd time) after working the sand out of the motor. 🙂
