Jim, some of those blades still look good There was a guy awhile back who posted a picture of the fence at his flying field with hundreds of busted blades in it I'd rather not see all my busted blades-- out of sight-- out of mind

LOL I once heard a guy say somewhere (maybe on RR) "once you have two 55 gallon drums full of broken parts you will know you are a good pilot"

Or you're getting A LOT worse

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I would hate to drop a blade grip bolt off that table. I need to take a picture of my blades stuck in the fence at my club. I think it is only about 8 sets.

I wouldn't want to jinx myself with putting a picture of broken parts up here. I suppose if your not crashing, your not learning fast enough.

Someone once told me the answer to being good lyes in the bottom of a 55 gallon drum of fuel. I think that is sooooo true!!

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I need those cheap blades for learning autos and orientations... and acting stupid I mostly fly Radix now but I bolt up some woodies when I want to try something new.

Despite the growing pile of broken blades emptying my wallet, I still can't get enough of this hobby!!
