You either need more practice.............. Or are trying too hard !

Try Depron. It bounces

Hey Cyberfun, as far as needing more practice we all can benefit from practice, but i assume, that you assume im just crashing one after the other. I am a sponsored pilot here and normally if i dont like a plane this is what happens to it, they get junked.(exception of the extra 260 i got another one to make better but theyre great) Trying to hard? i dont think we could ever try hard enough unless we were flying every hour of every day. I didnt really know how to take this post but as far as showing you my skill level check out http://www.fly3dnow.com/Videos.html 3rd video down. I have a lot of experience under my belt flying 3 to 4 times during the winter weeks and nearly everyday during the summer months. Thanks for your suggestion but Ive flown plenty of depron planes and have plenty thanks to my sponsors.

Its fine i was just saying you can nver have enough practice, as for the pile 3 foamys and a funtana aint bad for 2 seasons. i dont want you to take that wrong, it wasnt anything personal with cyberfun, i just wouldnt want to lose trust with anyone thinking i dont know what im talking about. Everyone on here is on the same team were all trying to better ourselves with the help of others.

Hobbydude. It's a classic case of dry british wit. Not knocking you at all bud.

I fly for the Ripmax Display Team and have a MUCh bigger collection of broken balsa than you

I can't wait to crash some planes for decorations, love the idea, i saw the pics in other post i think cool as all get out..... I guess it'd be really cool to have a side view with wing, some of fuse and stabilizer then rest painted on wall... cool stuff

Being that I have a umm wife / "boss" I typically dispose of my carcasses so she doesn't have the "how many planes have you crashed???" arguement. Which is almost as fun as the "How many planes do you need" arguement. I keep saying I need them as much as I need her. HEEHEEHEE

I got round the wife problem by converting half the garage into my 'hobby' room. And have a numerical keylock on the door. What she doesn't know won't hurt her. Will it?

Here's a corner of it...........

ps Garages in the UK are a little bigger that a normal compact car. So you can drive into one but would not be able to open the doors more than half way. So not a lot of room to work with [:@]
