When I put one in about 20 feet from me. My buddy standing beside me said "your getting better you don't have to walk to far for this one" By the way I hit so hard and straight in that the crankshaft broke but the prop didn't have a mark on it.

"Balsa is magnetic to pines, the woods are related."
-------------------------------------------------------------
My partner in crime, Lightman, was making his final, it's over a patch of 8 foot pine trees. I said "Now, as long as you don't hit a pine tree..." and about half a sec later he rolled it and SMACK! hit a pine tree.
We looked at each other perfectly straight-faced and I said
"Didn't I just tell you not to hit a pine tree?"
------------------------------------------------------------------
"That's going to be nothing but a pile of toothpicks."
----------------------------------------------------------
"It's like a Bermuda Triangle up in that corner."
----------------------------------------------------------
"Flying straight and level isn't good if the Earth isn't."
---------------------------------------------------------------
"That's not so bad. I can just build a box nose, scab the hip back onto the tailboom, repoxy the stab and fin and glue the mains mount back in. Replace the firewall and belly. Then for the wing...."

On the spectacular midair two weeks ago, "WOW"
And the demise of the pylon racer last week, "That's a little low."

One that I laughed for some time over ... right after the P-51 hit the runway ..... just a simple, relaxed "LANDING!!"

Well, you guys can keep it togather better then me. The last three...um...Crashes, have been followed by a flurry of profanity.

Please note that cartwheels, torn landing gears and tip stalls that are 5 and less feet off the ground don't fall into this category.


Crash 1 - Kyosho Sukhoi...The engine Flamed out, I was flying into a head wind 12mph, and tried to come around. "Dammit"

Crash 2 - Rebuilt Kyosho Sukhoi...Tail group came lose while making a overhead 15 spin a second rolling pass. This was a complete total of the airframe. While Jumping on the remains..."I hate this"


Crash 3 - 4th flight on a Global Freestyle with a New Saito .72. Knife edge from take off, I had intended on Flying Knife edge for the entire flight, then go into a Knife Edge to Hover. Entering the Hover, the engine loaded up on me, and after giving it full power to climb out, it stalled and went full bore into the freshly thawed mud. I had to dig for the Saito, the wing is all that wasn't busted. I still have it if anyone wants it. "Well, Looks like anger didn't solve anything last time." Then I kicked the tail group off of the fuse.

I haven't had a good crash since, but I am about to Maiden a US60 this weekend, so we will see.

"Knew I shouldn't have taken those garbage bags out of the truck."
"At least it made an impressive wreck!"

Hmm. Unfortunatly Ive been a little proficiant at this in my 18 years of flying.

After crashing a .40 scratchbuilt custom design "I've been wanting a new kit, but that's not what I had in mind."

After crashing a Great Planes F-15 with a Thunderbirds monocote job back when I was still learning how to fly(got mixed up on the sticks during final approach)
"(yelling across the parking lot) Uh Daaaaaddddd, do you have some more white monocote." Needless to say Pop, was not pleased with my flying skills. For those of you that are curious, I did rebuild it, and I still have it. Awesome plane. Dont believe them, it is NOT an intermediate plane.

After crashing a friends new P40 on its maiden flight because he put the elevator servo mount screws in, but they were not threaded into anything.
"Was that your plane or mine"....to which he replied "Yours"

After belly landing a imaculate Great Planes Cherokee .40 with detailed cockpit because the retracts didnt come down.
I just stood there for a minute, shaking my head, and when I turned around all my airforce buddies were holding up pieces of notebook paper with big "10"s written on them. I said "Was that for the flight or the landing?" I never got an answer.

My first plane was a .20 powered Prarie Bird. One time I was out flying with my dad, and my dad was talking with his buddies, and watching me from a distance. All of a sudden they saw me jumping around, and waving the transmitter all over the place, and the plane was flying all over the sky in a wild ball of complete chaos. Then I calmed down, and brought the plane in for a quick landing. As I was walking back to the car, my dad asked "What was that all about?" To which I replied "Bee stung me"

My dad's been flying for over 30 years now. He used to fly pattern competition. He taught me everything I needed to know, except how to crash. I learned that on my own. There is one thing he told me, that I'll never forget.

When upside down
down is up and
up is down
and lest thee forget
the ground come up
and smite thee.

How about.....

As the plane is going in -- "Oh, this can't be good."

As the plane is shattering -- "Oh, oh............this isn't good."
