First Crash
Well, it had to happen sooner or later! I had almost 2 gallons thru her when she went in last night, totally my fault. I'm a new flyer and I was on the 2nd tank last night flyng circuits, working on nose in at height. I was about 75 feet away and was about 5 feet off the deck, I ended up nose in and it started to nose over, I tryed to spin it tail in but when I did it banked hard to the left and contacted the ground, three more feet of height and I would have been able to save it. Not to bad, $67.00 damages. learn, live, fly again!
I'm not a pilot, I'm a crash facilitator!

thats not a bad crash at all. My crashes are always $200, and tend to demolish the frame.

Also I would like to appluade you for taking blame for the crash. Not many people do that. Most people I see 8/10 always say its a malfunction of some kind when they crash. From pop off link, to servo failure and my favorite, radio hits/glitches.


Keep up the good progress!

Best part is that now you have done the crash which you was afraid of, (getting the monkey off the back so to speak of).

Just go back there, and try again!

Never Wish
As an old pilot, ( full scale ) I was always taught a simple rule:

Never wish for the altitude above you, the runway behind you, or the fuel in someone else's tank LOL.

Those who never crash, either are not telling the truth, or dont fly enough.

Later,

My first crash was the exact same.....nothing you can do about it...and it's just a thing that can be repaired or replaced (thank you god!)

There are two cind of pilots.....they who have crashed an they who are going to crash!!

Keep up and good luck on your next flight!
