Don't fly pissed
I learned a valuable lesson this weekend.

While doing "on the deck" stuff, I crashed my new A.J. Slick 51, (3d Hobby Shop plank) which I have only been flying for about 2 weeks now. (dropped flat like a pancake from about 3' high) I was so pissed, I went and got my Trex 700E to fly something that I knew how to fly. I was about 2 minutes into a very aggressive flight when I did a move that I have done a thousand times and the old saying "up is down and down is expenseve" definitely rang true for me as I planted my machine into solid asphalt, inverted, at about 50 mph. I had no reason to be out there in that mental state, but I didn't want to go out like a punk so I flew pissed and paid the ultimate price. After 170 flights with no crashes, she finally went down with a bang.

Moral of the story...... DON'T FLY PISSED!!

I agree about releiving stress but in my opinion, there is a difference between flying to relieve stress and flying while pissed!! LOL!! Flying definitely clears my mind after a hard day though!!

I see people all the time fly a different machine after crashing one, but I always pack all my gear up after crashing a heli or plane I like. Crashing one pisses me off enough... crashing two in one day would send the blood pressure through the roof!!

Two weeks ago I planted my 700n on the first flight.
Parked it next to my stuff for everyone to see and pulled the Raptor 50 out. Flew it 4-5 times and went home. My Raptor has never seen the floor other than an aborted take-off.(going on over a YEAR since that) I love that thing. The three amigos.

I've seen this thread somewhere before...hmmm...

The stars have to be perfectly aligned and I have to be feeling pretty good to get down on the deck. Some day's, I just feel nervous or behind my game a little so end up doing the same comfortable crap over and over at high altitude. Then some days, or flights, the heli is doing exactly what I'm telling it to do and everything feels good, so I can get some good flying in. I very rarely fly after a crash as I'm chapped and the stars are out of alignment.
High Voltage just works better

Did the same thing with a 1/3rd scale space walker once during a inverted flyby.

I'm still pissed at the guy that was talking to me during the accident.

I don't know how to upload them from my phone but they really don't show much. Just a scraped canopy and busted blades. Nothing else was really damaged besides the 2 stripped gearsets and one broken tailblade.

Crashing due to dumb thumbs doesn't faze me at all anymore. I know I am gonna screw up, it is inevitable. However, it really ticks me off when I have a crash due to mechanical failure. I feel there is no excuse for those if you take care of your stuff and do decent pre and post flight checks.
I always continue flying other stuff after a crash if I brought something else with me.

Stupid people have no idea how stupid they are!!!
