"Emergency landing"

 right after take off on first flight with my new trike. Everything OK! The wind on take off was changing a bit. I did a mock take off just to get a feeling about the wind. I took off fairly well, passed over a power line and some houses, Then suddenly the motor stopped at low altitude. Not too many options for landing. I was not high enough to turn back to the take off. I passed over some trees without hitting them. Right in front was a dam and between the trees and the dam some tiny rice paddies. I pulled brakes a bit to slow down the speed and landed safe and sound. That was almost an adrenaline kick…

The photo shows I was lucky today.
