Default RE: Who has taught themself?

I will reluctantly add my name to the self taught. I tried to go with a club but I ended up know more about engine tuning than my trainer did. After I saw him crash his plane in about 30 seconds of flight I decided I would have just as much luck on my own. I did very well after practicing for 50 or so hours on FMS with my transmitter. It wasn't until I started trying crazy stuff that I crashed, like flying in 30 mph wind with an alpha and trying to flat spin it and stuff like that. I would suggest starting out with a trainer at a club. If you want to go it alone in a safe area just remember my number one rule for beginners *finesse everything*
