Trust me.
Bought a "lot" of stuff cheap and came with an old trainner.
6 hours and ready to see if it ran. started right up.
Took it out checked the throttle,elevator and rudder.
somone came up and started talking to me. inlaw that likes to talk.
well banded the wings on left right aileron. working. off i went. took off plane tilted to the right a little. left aileron, banked right right into the ground.
Pretty impresive cartwheel though.
after getting home with a pretty mangled plane found out they were working but working backwards. Half way done mending and gotta wait till tommorow. pretty bad CA headache.
Gotta say nothing felt worse than realizing it was a stupid mistake.

Been there, done that!

If one was to compile a list of: CAUSES OF FLIGHTS VERY SHORT IN DURATION , it would be very near the top!
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!
