For the next few months i trundled about in my faithfull buggy
Gaining confidence and enjoying every minute.
even got confident enough to powerslide a few times.
A wide axle would be great but not enough room to transport it..
the alternative was to fly slightly underpowered or get used to the bug stepping out
and learn to control it.
The second option was the one i took.
I am never going to be the best buggier in the uk ,probably not the best in my town but i could now powerslide and control the bug when it stepped out of line
so i was pretty pleased with myself
one particular saturday a few months back ,i had the day to myself
had it all planned ,up early , out to my local flying field and a full day of fun
oops spoke to soon !!!
wind was between 15-20 mph
up went melonman , bags of power
big grins , even bigger spins
then ooohh shiit ......
one powerslide to many
I assume the axle bolt came loose and one big gust and i almost had a crab buggy
At the time i thought i dealt with it quite well , but then the reality of what could of gone wrong with a powered up kite and a dodgy wheel.
I am now a bit more carefull and check my bug over after each outing
i also tend to fly a little under powered now as well
i may not break speed records ,but also i may not break my neck.
the speed would be great if i had bigger spaces , but in small areas the small light bug works well
and 20mph feels like 50
