I haven't flown in 20+ years. I bought a used ParkZone P-51 took it to a field and on the 3rd attempt got her airborne. Flew for about 10 minutes and landed in the tall grass. Went and grabbed my, son and brought them back. 4 tries to get her up this time. Flew her and this time did some loops. and some low level high speed passes over a large pond. Man this thing was looking good! My son looked at me and said"Wow Dad you really can fly" I then replied "That's right son Who's your Daddy? I then went to bring her around for a landing I banked to the right and she just went straight into the ground! Pilot error? Maybe. It came down about 75 feet. crushed spinner broken prop and cowl. slightly wrinkled body, less than $20 to get back in the air. I'm more impressed with that than the flight. Darn things are built tough!! I sure am glad to be back flying.
