"Wow! I'm glad that wasn't my plane. Uhhh... oh."

The ground obviously experienced a sudden change in elevation.

There was a short between the transmitter and the ground.

The Sun was in my eyes (especially useful when it's behind me, or on cloudy days.)

Down is up when upside down? Really? Even in Australia?

There was a sudden gust of gravity.

I totally charged my batteries last month.

Those darned Elmer's hinges!

My transmitter has eight model memories but I only have one.

I was in a hurry to land.

I had this 36" fomie combat plane with a 25 on it. I was flying it like a bat outa you know where. I was doing these crazy split S's and one of the wings ripped off.

My other really cool crash was with a spad. I built the spad demon and it sucked, or at least the one I made. It was a brick. I take off full power. It gets all crazy, I lose control of it. However, I keep the throttle up because I thought I could fight it. Big Mistake. It smashes into this giant dead oak tree. It sounded like a rifle when it hit. BOOM. Engine was like 75 feet from where the plane was. Never found the landing gear.

My latest was wrong model selected on the transmitter. Actually I had one since then, engine quit in a hover. Yup, its just something we all deal with. I almost stuffed it a few days ago when a friend said," do that rolling harrier again. I want to watch your thumbs." Next time he says that I'm going to say, "buy your own!"
Saw a club member make that mistake. Unfortunately his helicopted doesn't respond that well to his low wing model memory...........

I think he's given up on the heli now, costs him too much in repairs.

It has been my experience that all crashes are the result of two things......pilot error or mechanic error. Too bad they are usually the same person!!!

Bystander: Excuse me, Sir?
Pilot: This is a maiden flight of my turbine jet. It flies at 250 m.p.h. I need full concentration right now so please go away.
Bystander: But sir....
Pilot: I SAID GO AWAY!!
Bystander: Ummm ok...but your standing on a fire-ant bed...

All of these crashes can be summed up in two words - pilot error.
(Actually, some are due to mechanic's error - but he's the same guy[:@])
