Lucky 13 Flight Test

Here it is. You can hear Bob stepping in the throttle on the take off. The model looked like it had pretty good power. He didn’t get around to removing the propless glow motor (donor fuse) so the actual flight weight here is about 10lbs 10oz. Yikes! On speed 300’s. Very sorry to say, shortly into the fight the rudder servo failed and after about 10 minutes of circling trying to work it over the field with throttle and elevator only, he gave up before it got too far away and it made an off field landing in a thicket. Might be a month or longer before this wounded soldier makes it out of refurb.
