GEE WHIZ and WHOOPEY DO ....I got that plane in the air, flew around a little while and landed it. I was so excited I just had to share this with my blog buddies. I mean, I am more than excited!!
When I get good enough on the simulator Leslie says that I can fly his 'real' RC plane and he would not mind if I crashed it. I ask you, is that not a sweet man!!
Okay here we go. Now keep in mind that these pictures were made on my computer monitor screen. Not the best photos I've ever taken but I don't care. I was having a blast.
Here I am with my little red and white trainer taxiing down the runway. I am getting pretty good at this part, I must say!
I get up in the air over the airport but I am beginning to lose some altitude.
I manage to get a little lift on the plane and fly a little and then.....
I take a nose dive toward the ground.
and land in what Leslie calls 'the pea patch' (the grassy area beyond the runway). It was a bumpy landing but I didn't knock a thing off that plane!! Yippee!
I manage to gain enough speed in this vegetation and lift off again and start to climb.
I am soaring high up in the sky, just like a bird, and loving it.
So far every time I've managed to crash when landing and never on the runway. So it's time to try a landing on the tarmac! And, what do I do, I crash in the pea patch.
This next picture is an enlarged insert on the computer screen that shows the damage! It seems I have lost a wing and the trail is missing. And, I am upside down. Great going!!
Well, maybe someone will give me an A for effort and thank the good Lord, no people or animals, not even a blade of grass, was injured in my spectacular landing. To repair my plane all I have to do is push the reset button and there my little red and white plane is again, all new and ready to fly. I am loving this.
