    While technically not a lawn dart this is all that was left of the LT40 after a 35% carden Cap flew through it. Sad part was I had just put it together for my step daughter. [​IMG]

    These are the remains of my first gasser, an Aeroworks 50cc Yak 54. This is what happens when your ambition overpowers your skill with a snap happy airplane. Considering it hit nearly vertical under power it held up pretty well.

    If you look closely at the rudder, you can see it was doomed to fail, it was just a matter of time.:smile-new:

    Is it possible that this plane saw the future and committed suicide because of what was attached to it's rudder.

    Yes, and from now on that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Yup, I won't lie, it hurt not only the pocket book but the ego. Froze my flying for a while with self doubt. I do feel it was an issue with the fuse at the the base of the vertical stab. Snapped twice in level flight at a descent speed, nosed it in. Tried to discuss it with Comp ARF...they chose not to engage a possible issue with that custom job. As for another composite....maybe someday. :rolleyes:
