Flying in some wind with plenty batteries

Today 9am I flew in some wind with the 2 6cell 3300mah packs.

The controller did not like it and cut off the motor every time.

I tried and tried again with half and less throttle until the elevator servo lost some teeth again.

On the second hop the plane was flying okish, but the center of gravity was too much to the back, so I landed to fix that. The next flights were a nightmare and ended shortly after taking off...

What I like on those flights is that you can see the shadow of the plane.

the field I was trying to fly on was a corn field

Back to the workbench

the nose got a bit weak, and the servo needs new gears...
