I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

My blooper is when I destroyed one of my own Synergy N9 helis.

I had been flying planks for a few weeks and decided to take my Synergy up. I had a great flight and came in for a landing but I thought I would come in "like a plane over the runway" and then do an abrupt back elevator, then land. Well, I came in pretty fast over our runway (540 ft long), maybe about 10 feet up, and timed everything perfectly except I dropped throttle (still thinking I am flying my plane), and the negative pitch of the collective just pancaked the heli into the ground. I was too low to correct my mistake!

I had no choice but to laugh at myself. I screwed up bigtime!

I now have a "toggle switch" installed on my scalp. One side says "heli," the other says "plank!"

That would be handy.lol...

I always drop my throttle when I get my plank inverted...doesn't have the same effect as with a heli.lol...

I literally never use the word literally right.
