It Flew!!!...............?

Wow is all i can say, i built a dogfighter about 3 weeks ago and finally got all the self made design glitches out of it and flew it yesterday. the people at my local club said that it is good for someone's 3rd plane (i did not fly it there) but this was my first powered rc aircraft ever, it was easy to control (elevons on a foam glider help to learn to fly elevator and aileron) i pulled a loop a few seconds after takeoff (safe hight away from people) , i know it wasn't the smartest thing to but it handled it good, and then i flew a little more till.....The hawk decided that my airplane was a rival, to avoid the hawk i had to fly farther out and i lost it behind some trees and according to my dad it hit full throttle 20 in with 40 bank wing tip first, ripping the wing off and then the engine took the rest. Damage report: ripped connector off aileron servo when the wing was ripped off and broke a conrtol horn and lost 2 pushrods (aileron pushrods) and O' my gosh i bend some coroplast on the 2mm the airplane is fine and once i get some more parts ima go fly again after makeing shure there is no hawk that wants to get into a dogfight

P.S. thanks to all you spadders who got me into this, and yet i curse you, for this is problably worse than being addicted to cigarettes.
P.P.S. i flew it with the ailerons slightly reflexed up and it was very stable (i did not put it into a flat spin ) and more than enough power even though it was a little rich , and yes i am hooked

Congrats to you. Build a couple of different ones so if one goes in, you'll have a spare to keep on flying till you replace it.
