No Fly Day

John got in a great flight but I didn’t!

Perhaps I will expand on this at a later date but suffice to say that I didn’t fly.  The wing and I couldn’t get together on launch until it dived into the prop.  The damage was a broken line and a few small tears in the trailing edge on the top right side.  I think it fell back … popped forward and fell back again into the prop wash. The nose wheel came up then down then the rear right wheel lifted enough that I though that I was going over.  I killed power steered out of the tip but the prop didn’t wind down fast enough and caught the wing.  The right axle was bent but the fiberglass struts were not damaged.

Time to fly the PowerPlay for a bit.
