Default Who has taught themself?

I am curious as to how many people have succesfully taught themself. Back when i started this hobby 4 years ago I baught a slowtick and quicly learned the concepts of flight. I then baught a nitro trainer. I damaged it here in there but it was only from takeing off and landing on a less than ideal strip. A 2 lane road with trees on either side. I also might add, it was at 8000ft and always had a cross wind. LOL. Somehow, i got the hang of it and was able to do next to perfect landings. Since, i have moved my flying location to phoenix with a strip that is 50-60ft wide. Quite the difference.

I am not suggesting that any begginer try to fly there plane without a experienced flyer helping. Just curious if there is anyone else out there.
