But it was real close!!!!!
This is my little ducted fan creature. My thumb went into some sort of twitch when I was tring to land it, and I couldn't keep fine control of the elevator for landing. So, Don Coulter took over to take a shot at it. Having never flown this particular plane, having somewhat agressive control throws and being "a bit out of trim", Don made something of a low pass.

This is the leading edge repair in process. It's about ready for covering.

Dumb Thumb? Heck if you can retreive a portion of a tree with a plane and still land it you deserve some respect.  Shocked

Thanks Tim, I though I would get the dumb thumb for landing a p51 during a race without landing gear.
