that's sweet. I picked up a really cheap plane. SkyFly. It's not fast or powerful and it doesn't like any wind. It does however crash really well lol. My first two flights lasted bout 8 min in total. Instructions said beginners should throw it to launch. Yeah that didn't work for me, no interest in throwing it. Ground take off from the get go. Perfect take-off, cruised around for bout 6 min learning how it responds. All was going well. It occurred to me that the instructions said when you are comfortable in the sky, time to try a landing. OK hehe. It was sweet, I cam in so hard that the plane barely rolled forward a foot after touch down. So another take off, this time I'm thinking the box says loops at will
... so yep tried a loop. Not so much at will for me at that point lol. the loop was huge and i crashed. it wouldn't pull up to complete the loop. There wasn't to much around cept an old cinderblock wall sticking up about 2 feet. The plane dove behind the wall but it was pulling up so i figured i was gonna make it. Full throttle .... smack.. hrmmmmn I walked arounf the wall to seea pile of old telephone poles.. I flew into the top one ... butt ender
The plane was now close to an inch shorter. I took it home and started to pull it apart to see what was trashed. I had to replace evreything cept the elctronics. Complete rebuild cost about $59 so it wasn't to bad. (that's why i picked that plane, and not the cub with floats
) I haven't had a chance to fly it too much and it needs a new tail at the moment, but it is alot of fun.
