Got in 3 flights this morning in 3mph. winds.
First 2 flights ended in issues. Wing came off the Ultimate Bipe and ended in
a tree and the plane went down hard.
Next one she was very unstable and caused a bad landing and the motor got
knocked out.
Third one no issues at all it flew like it was supposed to, i had complete control
and made a good landing and no damage.
I think the first two had some hot glue issues from the cold weather.
Got repairing to do now.

Oh darn, well sounds like your living up to your username... hate to hear that the wing came off? is this just a profile foam type plane?

Bummer. I've given up on hot glue completely. It just doesn't hold up to the temperatures I get around here.

Hot glue has been a pain in cold weather for me too. Gone back to foam safe CA and kicker.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

Thanks for the condolances, but if i didn't crash some now and then i couldn't do what i like best.Build em. I don't do it deliberatly though. I have a small area here to fly in so i am prone to some trouble now and then. Right now as a result of very cold weather my flying skills are dull and being as aged as i am has a little to do with it also.Ha
I am working on a new Se5a with 30inch wingspan so we will see how that goes when it's done.
