It was my turn for the walk of shame today Sad

This was my Tucano's first outing of the year, first flight went really nicely. But the second flight suffered from a bit of pilot numb thumbs.

The the result of a slow down-wind pass and the engine going dead-stick
Left me with too little air speed to make the turn into wind. I ended up with a rather heavy landing into a safe area off the end of the strip.
Lesson learned. I'll keep the wings level and land flat next time:lol:

On a positive side, the covering was in need of some attention, I think that I will rebuild it in a warbirds colour scheme ready for next years meeting. Smile

A faulty underhand launch caused damage to the Mustang, this was easily and quickly repaired since I do not have to work for a living these days.
The next flight was hand launched by Chris whist I grimly held on to the tranny - success ! Full of confidence I launched  the next flight, after two or three circuits the engine cut and the model landed gently, I thought, in the long grass
it had spun round on meeting the grass and ripped the nose off and splintered the fuse. FUBAR.
Bits gathered together, taken home,and ceremoniously posted to Valhala.
