Default RE: fuel probe

Well I now know how to use a fuel probe. Did it today with a probe furnished by the ex commanding general of Edwards AFB. What a nice man.
The president of our club then offered to take the Piper Archer up and trim it for me.
This was the first flight. Beautiful take off 3 seconds of flight and crash on the desert. It sure made a lot of dust.
Damage was broken nose wheel, and several clevis connectors. Too much time in the sun made the plastic brittle.
I am in the process of replacing with metal where ever possible.
The air frame is fine except for some torn monocoat and abrasions. New prop and spinner required.
I sure know how to use a fuel probe now.
