Today was a bad day ... after launching I noticed that the antenna of the glider's receiver was still wrapped around the carbon fuselage *DOH!*. Anybody with a carbon glider already knows what happens next :(
The antenna will not get very good reception when next to carbon, so the glider was uncontrollable. I tried to land but after a right turn I lost reception completely and the glider just went down.
Luckily, the damage was not too severe because the glider crashed with a 90deg angle into the snow, which maximized the contact surface. If all goes well and I find a replacement for the front part today, I'll be flying again at the same spot tomorrow :)
Location: Kapall, ~2400m above sea, St.Anton am Arlberg
