Battery left at field.

Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:59 pm by Andyedmead

Not sure but think I may have left a battery on the box by the strip tonight after rushing off to recover plane from field?



Note to self "don't stall a Radjet".

What camera was it? Did you compensate for the extra weight on the tail? You would need a large amount in the nose fo a little amount on the tail

Looking at the vid, at the moment of launch you had the nose well above the horizon. When slope soaring its safer to have the nose well down. I think you stalled! Ooops! Ne'er mind!

Equal to the mobius? If so you would have needed a lot more

Wow, seeing that from a camera is really different.Sorry to see the damage.
I was very lucky a few weeks back with my "EDF Jet" at the field when my launch can only be described as 'exciting', with some very low level aerobatics to fortunately recover. I wish someone had a camera on the ground to record that one! It was over very quickly but seemed like ages of fighting the controls ! Cause was launching slightly off headwind & a wing picking up but with the speed of the EDF everything happened so fast & I was very lucky to get away with no damage!
