Flight logs:

Total Flight Time: 10 minutes

April 17, 2010 - 1 minute. 1 'flight'. A bit gustier than expected, completely forgot how to fly 4 channel. Nosed in hard shattering engine mount and damaging a wing. Stripped for parts.

August 28, 2009 - 8 minutes. 2 flights. First started crazy until I trimmed the elevator. Second flight went well, but with too much elevator authority and ended badly.

March 6, 2009 - < 1 minute. Maiden flight. Inside. Golf dome. Up, over and down. Minor damage.
