I've never used this one,but have heard it more than anything else."I don't have it",that covers all the bases i guess.

LOOK OUT! LOOK OUT! LOOK OUT!
This was after the entire tail section came off of my Kaos. This was dumb because there were three of us at the field and all three of us were in the air. The other two guys pointed their planes up and hoped for the best, but they really couldn't take their eyes off their planes.

"Well that's the last time I'll try THAT again."

"I thought you said YOU had it."

"Oh well, did you at least get it on video?"

"Wait until I talk to that guy that recommended this as a second plane."

"See, I told you so. You can't be that low to do that maneuver."

"Well that proves it. You can't build a plane entirely with CA."

"Don't tell ME that's not scale! More WWI planes were lost like that than in actual combat."

"I kept saying to myself during that low pass, "remember, down is up, down is up." So what do I do? Up is down."

Damn, I hate it when it does that!

Crap, that was the ground!

Now that was a truly spectacular display of poor judgement.

Does warranty cover that?

I was going to buy a new plane anyway.

I was just trying to see if it would explode like the real thing.

DARN EARTH, keeps chasing my plane, finally caught up.

The ground wasn't where it's supposed to be.

When i was learning, my instructor and i had a conversation that lasted about 15 secs, about who had control of the plane,
Ok, hold on im gonna take it for a minute and see whats up with this
ok,
do you have control?
umm no, you took control
but i dont have control
what?
hold on a second
ummm ok
oh $%@&
that didn't look too bad.
what happened?
dunno.

Turns out the ailerons clevises decided to come apart, making the whole plane shake, and made it seem like it was uncontrollable, the elevator and rudder had little effect.
The instructor was and still is a great pilot. He almost managed to land it on the runway, but made an oops about 50 ft. out, and eded up planting it into the grass. The grass caught it, and no damage was done. Turns out the engine mount was loose also, causing more vibration than we cared for.

In some of my crashes I have said:
Where did that goal post come from.
What a goal.
Cor, look at the size of the crater.
