Default My first crash :-(

It had to happen.

My first plane crash. Totalled my Great Planes Spitfire 25. And I must admit, pilot error, was flying a tad to slow and too high doing the baseleg of a landing and boom .... Stalled, spun out and hit the dek. Very badly damaged for such a "nearly" unbreakeble plane :-)

So here I have an OS25FX that needs a new home.

Anyone have any suggestions on a small, fast, nimble plane that I can use thid engine in. I really loved the spittie, almost tempted to get another one but looking for something else.

I am leaning towards a great planes combat corsair or mustang arf. In the combat forum they all seem to really find it a fun flying plane. I just can't pick one, maybe I need both

I am not to keen on an ARF. Have been pondering abouth building a SIG Kobra

There is just so little info on the plane even though it seems like it's been around for years and years.

Hey Marcel

Why don't you try the Greatplanes .25 P-40? It is more or less the same with your spit but with no vices in spining with drops of wingtips in slow turns...

Yes we all crash from time to time. My wife doesn't understand why I spend all that money and time building planes and risk loosing them everytime I fly them. I once told her that I believed it is part of the fun. I'm glad I've only crashed a ARF or two, it would hurt a lot more if I crashed a kit!

I have to think of it this way, the more times I crash... the more I learn not to crash and learn from it. I have to say this that, everytime I've crashed.... 95% of the time it was because I did something incredibly stupid. [sm=lol.gif]
