Default Bitty Bipe

Well I decided Too bite the bullet and try and fly the bitty bipe. So I gave some left rudder and throttled up and it took off and it banked to the left, because I didn't let off the rudder and it cartwheeled in. Broke off the firewall, and took off the bottom wing, intact. Oh well, probably will rebuild it but not right now.

Did you really hold left rudder?
We usually have to hold a small amount of right rudder, unless the prop is running in reverse direction, then you would need left.

Sorry for your crash, I think I have crashed in almost every way possible, from before lift-off to straight down full power dive (my receiver battery came unplugged on a nitro 60 stunt plane)

Little epoxy will fix the firewall.
