But ... we have video!
« on: April 08, 2019, 05:17:32 PM »
What an exciting time it was, Sunday at the Toyground. There was this fantastic pilot flying his Crack Turbo Beaver, with his buddy,  an ace videodrone pilot, zipping around catching the performance for posterity.

Suddenly, the two flying objects briefly tried to occupy the same space!  Crack!  Down came the Beaver, its motor dangling and one wheel plus several foam chunks floating down. The little drone just thunked down to ground. Ouch!

The drone only wrecked 2 of its props. The Beaver sustained more damage but a search recovered all of the bits. An hour or so this morning and it is all back airworthy and the repairs undetectable. Thanks to the miracle of hot glue and gorilla glue.

It could have been worse ... much worse. Was it worth it? You bet, because ... we have video! Adam will post his work soon.

Then, we will do it (or perhaps part of it) all over again in a few days. Great fun!

Woo hoo! Good job, Adam!

I flew the Beaver today, better than ever. This little event presented an opportunity to upgrade a couple of rather noisy servos on the leading edge slats, and the overall repair is almost undetectable.

Let's do it again, we are rarin' to go!
