Default RE: Who has taught themself?

although my first couple of flights were with an experienced rc pilot(out of state), once i returned home i was on my own. due to the fact that i did not know how to tune an engine my next few flights ended shortly after the engine died after takeoff. i was able to coast to a landing many times without crashing. i definetly would have crashed if i would have achieved an altitude of more than 20 feet. eventually i found a field around home and got someone to help with the engine tuning. i still continued to fly without help but i crashed a lot.
