Do not tail slide into the ground...

Had a great evening flying my Parkzone Citabria with a friend. He was just getting started with his Citabria and ended up sliding tail first down a net used as a wall. Something caught his elevator and stripped the servo - bummer.

Then I remembered all those Airhog toy R/C planes - they are only throttle and rudder! So we trimmed the elevator to stop the servo from whining and gave it a go. Worked like a charm! Now to be fair, he couldn't make nice gentle landings, and turning hard was out of the question, but he was back in the air and the evening wasn't lost.

So, to quote a TV great - "If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.".
