    The CARF Models B-2 flies at Weston Park International Model Show for the first time. On take off the B-2 inadvertently heads to the right and just gets into the air by virtue of a fortuitous bump in the grass strip. Quick reactions from the pilot on the ailerons steered the jet away and into its ascent to start its display. After several minutes of scale flight the final descent and landing almost turned into disaster with the B-2 touching down a little too early and bouncing off the undulating grass surface. Fortunately the acrobatic flip resulted in minimal damage.

  2. That was a pretty scary takeoff for sure.

    Oooff, fortunate bump indeed... Just curious when it was time to abort that takeoff? or how? Not sure how ground steering works on a delta wing with a row of tires on either side.

    The landing was in the opposite direction, was there any wind? Looks like the forward momentum with the reverse thrust with that ground loop what made it flip.

    Thanks for sharing! What a neat model!
