Well, had three more flights on the TH F6F yesterday. What a sweet flying plane. I gave my buddy one for his birthday last week and he maidened it on Saturday. He has 50 years in the hobby and it was amazing what he did with that plane. I had no idea the type of areobatics this little plane can do. It was a sight to see how he threw this little plane around the air. Put my flying to shame to say the least. I had a really awesome weekend, but the following happened to me yesterday:
I had the strangest thing happen yesterday. I was flying my PZ Airforce Trojan when all of a sudden my plane lost total control. I was flying our pattern at about 100 feet when I noticed the plane descending. I had no throttle or directional control, nothing. I yelled to my buddies that I had no control as I watched my plane descend and come to a perfect 3 point landing with no input from me! After she landed, I went over and noticed that her canopy/battery hatch had come off, but other than that, absolutely NO damage to the plane whatsoever! Is that luck or what?? I may have been flying too close to the powerlines and got into the EMF or something. One of the power poles looked like it had a couple of antennas sticking out of it powered by a solar panel. That was probably the issue. I put a new battery in her and she flew fine.................strange. I didn't fly too close to those lines again.
In any case, my squadron is still intact. Can't wait to fly the F6F again!!
