On to the First Flight
EP Sports Flyer
24 April 2010 - on this day, I managed a flight proper. This was accomplished with my second plane - an unknown marque so I shall call it the EP Sports Flyer. A very exciting moment coupled with the fact that it was not a slow plane by any means made it all the more memorable!
Second flight with the EP Sports Flyer ended in a bad crash. On hindsight, I nailed it down to my lack of piloting skill and experience in not ensuring that the bundle of wires in the fuselage would not tangle with the aileron push rods. After a few more hits and misses, I salvaged all reusable parts before decommissioning it. It was good while it lasted!
