Disregarding the high wind warning, I flew. I can’t really blame the crash on my dumb thumbing, but I’d like to blame something.
The crash resulted in the rear of the vertical stabilizer breaking off. It already had a stress fracture in the fiberglass that should have been repaired… but lazy me. Two pieces of duct tape and it flew 3 more times that day… without incident. I’ll fix it for real before it flies again.
