Videos: RC Flying

A bit of video of Stephen's bipe flying yesterday

I maidened the Decathlon after it's last major repair and it flew sorta ok. I was playing with the flaps at altitude and had just turned them off to accelerate to normal cruising speed when it resumed it's favourite position - the spin. During (over) correction, the rudder broke off either due to stress or impact and then bits progressivley fell apart from there.

Unfortuantely, the camera stopped on first ground strike and didn't get the whole story of the carnage so I've uploaded a couple of photos to go with it.

Note the 1/2 propellor at the impact site on the left of the image.

Good eyes Gary, i was just to busy watchin Stephen Flys his Plane and wishing i could do half the stuff he can do with my Typhoon 3d.
His is really good for a pylon racer.

Sorry to here and see the Pics of the Flight Report Drew, but couldn't you waited so we all could of watched the carnage LIVE. Biggrin.

No flies on you Gazz,
I didn't realise it was mirror it must have happined when I flipped the video to get it right side up. I foolishly took it upside down with my iphone then used pdowe director to turn it right side up and in doing so mush have flipped it some how ????

Nice Stuff Andrew.
I Like how you edited the video looks really good, Definitely need sound for Helli next Time but the replacement sounds good though.
LOL With The Explosion wasn't expecting that.
The panning around at members and planes is a great touch well done.

Jason, I hope you have not been scared for life.
Thanks for the tow, we nearly got there towards the end - maybe next time we will succeed.
Thanks also to Ron who generously loaned his plane to us to tug the glider along.

Thrust is definitely up around there, Easier to hold back a Jetcat P120 at full tilt than the Porter!
