Default 1.68m CMP Cessna ...

Took off ... all nice ... flying round ... then down for a low pass for the vid-cam .... she flips inverted ... and straight in ... !!

She's repairable ... new cowl, filler and back-up matt for GRP fuselage ... re-hinge elevator and aileron .... re-fit nose wheel ...

Sadly the video never recorded - forgot to put the SD card in camera !!

Verdict ? I think the module in Tx may have suffered momentary contact problem ... as when walking to model - I felt the module 'click' ....

As we all know - introducing contacts / switches / extra connections in any electrical run risks problems ...

She will fly again - but not today ! She's now on the pending bench.
