One of the things I have found is that when my confidence is low, my results are not good. Tail outta control, Did something wrong. Not the first or last and you know Ill keep on fighting! So Now its on to the NX for some stick time. BTW damage was limited to landing gear.
Before and after pics

Round 2 with the Swift went much better. Up around and back down, still have some ah.......issues but Im outta time for working thru them today. At least it went up, flew around and landed. More importantly, its ready to go again tomorrow!

crashing...
Crashing is always a part of the game...never let it get you down

just make sure you check all the sensors very closely before flying

and never ignore warning signs...my machine was telling me it was having rudder issues ...but I refused to listen...now it's in about 20 pieces in my trunk...lol..

oh well..hope you have better luck than me ...

this is funny

Well good thing Im working the process! Flight did not end well. Tail continues to oscillate badly. This time it took several seconds for it to start but it got bad fast. Ill be down for parts now as a boom strike took out the boom and tail case.........
I will say this Swift is pretty tough as shes gone thru some pretty hard landings the last few days!
Rudder P: 202 I: 354, movin' P to 320 and I to 490 as it got better as I pushed both numbers up.
