I knew it would happen one day, and today was the day. I had already flown several flights, including doing forward and backward flips for the first time. On this last flight, I had just completed a roll and started a turn to bring it back around. But I must have still had some down collective when I rolled out and I lost orientation against the cloudy sky. At least, that's what I "think" happened.

It went into the ground on a knife-edge VERY fast from about 75' with a LOT of power. Yep, it was all thumbs. At least all the electronics are good. I took these pictures after I got home. Actually, I'm glad to get that first crash behind me.

BTW, I'm sure glad I had moved the tail servo up front. Otherwise, it may not have made it.

It looks like an average crash, not too bad for your first!

if you made it to flips and rolls before your first crash I am going to have to bow to your skills. I crashed twice before forward flight and were not even going to talk about the first flip

CRASH! GLUE! REPEAT!

Not too shabby.
My first several crashes were way before any loops or rolls.

Thanks. But I didn't steal your slogan. Mine is spelled differently.
