Gopro failed updating
One might say the Belite people protected me from my own mistakes.
Chapter 4: EPILOGUE The aircraft is currently being rebuilt.
I climbed through ground effect, then it felt like I lost control of the aircraft, but what was really happening was a departure stall, which quickly turned into a spin.
When I realized what was happening, I slammed the stick forward and recovered just as the aircraft impacted the ground. A few seconds later, I was out of the aircraft, walking around the wreck, and pondering what had just happened.
According to the law, it’s more important that the aircraft be light than it be strong. Part 103 is not a safety standard, it is a weight standard. Another concern is lacerations caused by sheet metal.
I’d never heard of someone surviving a stall / spin, much less surviving without hardly any damage to their own body.
We’ll get to the pilot’s story in a few paragraphs.
As stated, the rear fuselage had a minor bend in the lower longerons, which we easily repaired.
One wing is being replaced, the other wing is being repaired and the cabin is being replaced.
