    Painful day with a WW1 Bristol !

    My friends Bristol had an issue with the motor not coming up, and a crosswind take off, not the way you want to start a DAWN PATROL !

    It looks like a survivable crash. Were you able to get it down OK?

    RE: Painful day with a WW1 Bristol !

    My friend had it back together , flew it a few times and had a receiver pack die in flight, so it is a mess yet again !

    I am not sure its worth fixing , but I told him set it aside.. wait until you are in the mood.. then see if its worth it...

    Bummer... I can't blame him for feeling depressed, but you gave him the best advice. Hopefully he will tackle it again.

    That is the best advice.

    I put a plane into a tree in the spring of 2012. The pieces sat in the basement until this past fall when I tackled the repair. It was the right time and letting it sit gave me time to mull it over.

    I have heard the tail section is back together on the fuse ! From the BIG crash, not the little tree incident

    RE: Painful day with a WW1 Bristol !

    I keep hearing the plane is closer to airworthy again !

    If you had seen it go in you would never believe it was fixable, man it hit hard from a LONG way up, straight in.. the very soft turned dirt in the field saved it.
