The test flight was 90% successful. Takeoff was fairly smooth, didn't jump off the runway, climb out was good, needed quite a it off aileron trimming. Flew pretty good once trimmed out. Seemed to have enough power too. And that was the 90%

Coming in for a landing, turned onto base leg, looked like a wing tip stall, flipped over onto its back very quickly which then turned into a dive that could not be recovered from. Into the bean field it went.

We figured, with the stubby wings and the weight of the engine pod being so high up off the centreline, it could have been the reason for such a violent maneuver. But it shall be repaired, just the nose in front of the canopy got destroyed, and the stab broke cleanly, so simple epoxy fix for that.

You gotta love these little foamie planes......

Re: HK He-162

Decided to remove the landing gear first off and make it a bungee launch model. Less drag and weight.

Fashioned a new nose section and epoxied the stab back together. Plus, added a 1/8" plywood spar.

Will apply the latex primer and grey paint later after I cut the recess for the battery.

Re: HK He-162

We re-maidened this tricky little jet today after I repaired it.No landing gear this time, hand launched it. Ted did the honours and certainly had his hands full trying to keep it in the air, even though it is a very light model, it's a bear to fly, particularly in the turns. With the thrust line so high on the model, it wants to push the nose down. But, Ted is an excellent flyer and managed well. The landing was perfect as the model flies straight and true when the power is off and it's not turning.
Once I strart flying it, I can see it will have a short life........
