Max landing on his nose and reporting “Clear of all runways” just made my entire day. 😂

I’m facedown on the taxiway with an aerobatics warning.

Edit: taking off from the ramp worked perfectly, I didn’t even get a notice about max taxi speed lol

Looks like a bunch of the XCubs just dropped down and did a few touch & goes.

@Marc and @tomthetank have merged into one, super-powerful, unstoppable, XCUB+, and have gained the power to fly with twice the fuel, and gain twice the xp each flight, as well as be able to announce clear of all runways from in the air.

MaxSez: I’ve never been as embarrassed as I am right now in all my life! I caught a 35 mile an hour gust on take off at Page and ended up nose down in the mud with 11 guys watching and LOL. To add to my Misery I lost the server over Naples.

I’ll miss the recovery at the Ocean Reef club no beer for me, I’m afraid to show my face. I’ll never live this down, Just call me“Crash Mustang” for now… OOOOOOMy!, I conquer adversity, “I’ll be back”!

Max, don’t feel so bad. It happens to all of us! No matter who, everyone goes nose down in the XCub, and at one point, loses the server. Hope you join us again on another leg if you regain the server.

Max, this is honestly one of the best events I’ve been at recently. Beautiful route, and it’s so much fun with this wind. Haven’t used the XCub in a while.

MaxSez, Noted @Marc… Page is my Home Field. Fly this route real in aa friend 172 to the Club for Brunch periodically. Florida is a magic place to fly, Wx is almost always fair except in the brief rainy seasons

Think someone rigged the winds at Page, I’m a mile away, bit overcast but just a low on shore flow, Av 4mph by my anemometer.
Regards, Max

During the XCubs to Oshkosh event I documented my journey in the XCub from KSMO to Osh. Was 5 legs, this was before the mixture control so the fuel burn was bad, only got like 1hr 30mns out of a full tank.

I crashed landing on leg 2 in a 24knt+ cross wind. Quite embarrassing because I needed the screenshots to post on Instagram.
