    My first R/C plane - First flights

    The photo of the first day of flights, unfortunately, isn't present.
    The first flight passed normally.
    In the second flight at vertical loop performance a flaw - result falling and breakage of vertical tail. Breaking polyfoam stuck together glue Akfix - PA 360. A place of fastening vertical tail strengthened the reinforced adhesive tape. Repair borrowed 20 minutes.
    Morals - you are not able to fly - don't show off!!! :-)

    Second day of flights. Photo of the grandson Artem.

    Before take-off


    Take-off from a hand. The main landing gear we do not mount - "Belly landing". The canopy just in case fixed an elastic band. In a sunny day polarizing sunglasses are very much recommended, differently will catch sun hares :-)


    The plane in flight




    Fight against air flaws


    Landing approach


    Soft "Belly landing"


    Flights showed that it is necessary to establish a horn on the minimum expenses (last position).
    After the first falling and repair the knot of fastening of vertical tail is strengthened by the reinforced adhesive tape.
    Horn of elevator is established in average position




    The second day of flights passed more successfully. The truth once plane hooked on tree branches. Did without breakages.

    Many thanks for attention

    Looks like fun on an early spring day in Kharkiv.

    So all you aircraft lovers... What happened to real aircraft? Something different? Not MD80's, 767's, Airbus 300, 480, etc.

    Like this. (Just coincidence that it is Soviet era).

    This is the first time I've ever seen this beast. What an incredible piece of machinery! I mean, yes, it's "unconventional" but that is a huge part of what makes it so fascinating. It's very sad to me to see it sitting in such a state of rot. Something like that should be preserved in a (huge) museum somewhere. I'd love to crawl through it.

    Thanks for sharing this, guys.

    That is a beautiful RC airplane. I really like the "Landing Approach" photo.

    My little boy would love those toy aircrafts. Nowadays, I'm reluctant to take photos of planes. The security will come after me. LOL
