Default It's a gasser but a goodie!

This was before I got therapy, back when all my clothes smelled like nitro.

I was doing a high speed inverted pass at the club straight down the runway about five feet above the deck. Hit a wind gust and, yep, you got the rest of the story. Wide open throttle on a 46FX, it was spectacular.

I call this picture, "Don't pull back when inverted"!

I did that with my 40 size trainer last weekend I blamed it on trying to roll out the oposit direction and the guy behind me screaming "huck that biach" same guy said later that day "it's not to bad you don't need rudder on a trainer then I reminded him of the pass I did before the crash where I pulled a knife edge across the feild length time to rebild the rudder
