Flying in confinded spaces with unintended results.............

Post  rsv1cox on Mon Oct 03, 2016 7:37 am

With the field next to the house to wet to use after three days of rain, my son and I decided to fly this little electric foam T-38 in a small area taking it off from the asphalt between the garages circle around and land back on the driveway. Everything went well until he decided instead of landing he would just circle around and do it again.

Before he took off I mentioned in jest that the garage door was open and that he better not crash into my Miata.

Well, the circle around didn't quite work and to my amazement I watched the little plane fly into the open garage and land on my Honda. It rolled to the edge and nosed over. Good thing it didn't hit my Miata I told him. No damage either to the plane or the Accord.

Cowl, wingtip, and one wheel...guess you'd call that a three-point landing. Smile Smile

Yes, any landing that you can walk away from. Smile

It caught on the seam between the door and the roof. Subsequent take-offs and landings back on the driveway were fine.

That's a nice little flyer, four channels and practically no weight to it. I was flying it off a road over a field a couple of years ago when I lost it, not over the field but over the road. Nosed it into the asphalt breaking the nose. A little foam friendly CA got it back in the air again.
