Third Flight of My eRC B-25

This is the third flight of my eRC B-25J from Hobby Lobby. This flight, the engine cowlings are mounted and I used the retracts in flight for the very first time.

The flight to place on the evening of June 21, 2011. Ricky Taylor was using my camera as I made this flight at the Lubbock Oddball RC Society (LORCS) airfield (i.e. Ricky's backyard).

It was a hairy take-off, I almost aborted when it finally broke ground and started climbing. It looks like one of the main landing gears did not retract fully.

The Youtube links are down in the ref section. Part one is the take-off. Part two is the landing.
