Just had to replace the needle valve.  (Had one)  And the prop, of course.  Lots of cleaning, too. Smiley

Already back together and ready to go.

Did the engine survive? The airplane looks pretty good for a full on SMACK.

Yep, I know what you mean, Bob. Wink  Just a little deeper and it would have been a post hole!  I had to PULL to get it out of the ground.

Thanks, Lastwoodsman

This "landing" happened when I mistimed the second half of a lazy 8, and the plane ended up over my head and out of sight behind the visor of my hat!  Never lost line tension, but by the time I had the plane in sight again it was too late for a recovery.  At least no one was hurt (me!!!) and the ground was pretty soft.  It, and the Shoestring that I crashed the same day are both repaired and ready to go. Grin

I also had a Cox rtf, a PT-19, with the .049, when I was seven years old. (I'm 64 now)  It didn't survive long, but I still have the .049.  Don't know how many profile balsa 1/2a kits it has powered over the years.  It's currently in a Baby Ringmaster.  Still runs great.

Hi JWW - THAT is a REAL PLANT !!!  Lips Sealed  I tried to plant a Cox .049  plastic Stuka control line when I was a kid - decided to try a loop - only got 3/4 of the loop - would not plant though in the hard packed baseball diamond gravel - the .049 engine ended up 30 yards away from touchdown !! SMASHED TO SMITHEREENS !!  Glad you got no permanent damage - GREAT PIC, by the way ... purtiest planted plane I ever saw ...  Wink

Sorry about the loss. Hope that the crank isn't bent. It still is a good looking wreck.

Hi all.

Went flying c/l on the fourth to practice new maneuvers.  It didn't work out quite like I hoped.

Brodak Lightning Streak in unplanned landing position.  There's a whole Fox 35 with muffler in there! Huh

It will be rebuilt. Smiley

John

PS.  I also managed to plant a Goldberg Shoestring stunter the same day.
