Texas Huckfest 2011
First 9 minute flight was flawless. Maiden out of the way.
Refueled and softened expo. Team Pilot member switched Elev 2 to Elevator to match elevators also reversed servo. I requested he switch it back which he did, but the Elev 2 ended up in a different position on the radio. Once motor started and wide open throttle. We noticed severe elevator glitching on the elevators. Team Pilot member suggested moving BODA antenna from wing tube socket to plywood fuse. We did and it seemed to solve the problem. I then proceeded to take off. After the 1st turn I got a huge glitch (The plane Snapped inverted) I cut the throttle and was able to recover the plane. I called the landing and kept the throttle chopped and then on final you can see the right half of the elevator lock to half down deflection and drive it into the dirt.
I just recently switched to Hitec and after not loosing a plane in the last 3 years, I lost 3 in the past 3 weeks. I ordered a JR 11X and am going back.
Good luck Hitec!
