Twenty-second airborne division

Ah, this reminds me of my own feeble attempts to build a radio controlled airplane. Mike, a friend of ours and I all bought ourselves this little glider here, and spent half our summer in the basement to build it. It only took me ten seconds to crash it though. I don’t know how often we went out flying, but I remember being very frustrated that the relation between repairing and flying was about 3 days / 10 seconds.

Mike was more patient than me. I guess that’s why he’s a pilot now and I’m a cartoonist.

    ouch! I bet that once cost a little more than the Rofly…
    However it took almost all of our allowance to buy that thing at the time…

    The S/A Bulldog I posted photos of in the forum lasted about 5 Seconds and left a lovely trail of wreckage as it cartwheeled across the flying field 🙂

    Reminds me of the time my P-40 warhawk didn’t even get the chance to fly. The moment I throttled up for takeoff on the first flight, some part of the engine literally exploded, taking half the aircraft with it. I still have no clue what caused that premature disassembly.
