Parkzone Ultra-Micro P-51 first flight
Last Friday in a fit of impulse buying, I picked up a new Parkzone Ultra-Micro P-51. That isn't to say I haven't been thinking about buying one for a long time, but the timing was last minute. Due to weather conditions, racing, and house projects over the weekend I didn't have a chance to fly it until today. After the wind conditions calmed down to only breezy, added to a little peer pressure pushed me over the edge and I decided to do a quick flight off the parking lot out back of our office. Ryan volunteered to take video on my Droid, and here is the fun that resulted!
After a handful of very close calls, and realizing it was just too windy I tried to put it down. The landing was a little harsh, but only minor cosmetic damage resulted. Even with the challenge from the breeze, I can tell this will be a fun airplane to fly. (in calmer conditions!)
