#13 Do A Barrel Roll!

Flying

…and then pull up! pull up! [11 seconds]

So, my plane isn’t meant for aerobatics. But lets try doing another roll…

The wing spar snapped and caused a 200 ft free fall. What a sad looking Bixler. But wait! I just received new parts! (motor, ESC, prop, servos, wing spar, full spread really) To the impromptu workbench/kitchen counter…

 

Many hours of soldering and “wingin it”, and im finally ready to get back in the sky. Brought it with me to Madison to fly on Sunday, but only had it up for a couple minutes before landing a bit too hard twice (loose aileron servo, unfamiliar terrain), resulting in a re-broken nose/fuselage. It was a quick fix with hot glue, but now I need to wait for better weather and daylight!
