Default Double crash..

Two weeks ago I flew in 16 mph winds. Yes, against my better judgement but I was impatient. Results below. arrrrgh.....

I have been fortunate being able to fly in 8 to 12 mph winds quite regularly. Pilot error had a lot to do with it.

Bummer Bruce. The damage doesn't look too bad, get them birds fixed and back in the air ...maybe wait for the wind to die down though .

That was the hardest lesson I learned when I began flying. It seemed as if each time I went out in the wind I would end up spending hours at the work bench. I keep that in mind when I am assessing the flying conditions.

Sorry bout your planes

Thanks birdDog,
I've lost a few planes in the wind. I've mourned these two long enough. Time to get-r-done and back in the air.
No repair work has been started yet. I have located a few usable parts out in the shed. from other close encounters...
