I must own up to a bad bad landing – a very poor turn on final stuck it into the grass. The aircraft had plenty of power but I was too chicken to use it. Just as I got it in the air there were about a dozen people that arrived at the ground.
Attached is photo of the damage. I am reprinting Fuselage #2 and #3 at least. The wires of the nose gear ripped off and the main gear struts bent, so a bit of repairs needed but nothing too bad. As long as the servos and retracts all still work that’s the main thing.
You can see in the video I had an Eachine FPV camera/transmitter in the cockpit. The FPV signal was poor – only a dipole antenna. I will replace it with a circular antenna and maybe up the signal too from 25mW to 50mW. Also I think I’ll reposition the camera to the nose – that will also help with COG a little but more importantly give a more unobstructed view.
Looking forward to flying this again!
