I wrecked my Kitfox

The end of July I flew out to Suches GA to the Just-Aircraft fly-in out at Kennedy Creek, which is in northern GA.  I was flying in the STOL competition they had there (not cause a had a chance and beating the Just-Aircraft but more for practice than anything)   and on my first landing my right rudder peddles broke, unfortunately my peddles hadn't been reinforced, which then resulted in a ground loop. 

One of the spectators got a video of my incident and shared it with me, so here it is.    https://youtu.be/rIkYKB6JHQE.

If Troy Woodland hadn't volunteered his shop for me to fix it in it would have taken longer to fix. Troy's a great guy!

Thanks for the reminder.  I keep inspecting my welds but that probably isn't enough.

Better just do the gussets.
