Bixler-2 FPV - close calls and a prang
Another windy day about a month ago. This was my first buzz through the trees near the shed which I have to say was pretty pucker-worthy at the time. The landing was at nearly zero landspeed - who needs flaps when you have a 30 knot headwind? Also a pretty ordinary attempt at the top two trees, followed by an excellent case study of "Target Fixation". I've since had a good run or two through two-trees so feel somewhat redeemed :-)
The poor bixler suffered a chunk out of the right wing, a rather compressed nose and a severed tailfin. Nothing some glue, tape, skewers and hot water couldn't fix.
