Too eager to get airborne...
Conditions weren't exactly perfect - it had rained a bit earlier that evening, there was a bit of wind, and the sun had already set. I took a chance, and tried to fly anyway. Everything was fine until I flew into the sunset. Due to the backlight, I could only make out the profile of the plane. Once there, it started to roll a bit. Unable to see to which way it had rolled, I pulled the elevator to gain some height. But unfortunately the plane had already rolled too much, and took a sharp dive towards the ground. The forward fuselage was completely crushed, however the rest of the plane survived. That's one great advantage of the low weight of foam jets.
It flew again, only 2 days later (see my other video).
