This should come with a disclaimer...

Sad. Stupid. Dangerous. I see nothing funny about it. Do you believe that an out-of-control plane can kill or injure someone, like maybe you?

I find it funny also because if you don't laugh at your crashes you will never stay with this wonderful R/C plane hobby long. We have all crashed and you can laugh and find humor in it or you can be mad and as for myself I will always find some way to laugh at it.

Laugh all you want, if you find it funny then so be it. Unfortunately for some reason people in this HOBBY tend to forget that this is exactly what a previous fellow flyer called it. A HOBBY, of course there are dangers and safety rules to follow but what I find funny is that all those people calling stuff or giving you a hard time, act as if they have never had an accident, crash or have never ever made a mistake. I think we need to take this great HOBBY of ours a little more on the relaxing side and not treat our fellow members so harsh. If you think it is not funny then don’t reply. Life is too short to be a grouch or to think that only the guys that know what they are doing are gods of this hobby, I am sure we all had our learning curves.

You know; the first time i watched that I was like "Yea, so, its a crash, not even really spectacular"

Then today happened. (See my post wind bitten) After all was said and done and myself and the other gentleman involved stopped being scared of what could have been we both laughed a lot about it. Its like you said, its a hobby. Crashes happen, instead of flying off the handle lets look at the humorous side, rebuild, and thank God (Or whatever deity you believe in) that we [i]can[/i] enjoy this hobby.

Well I guess I just have some kind of sick senese of humor. that looked like an arf, so the mental anguish wasnt near like i had. My crash was of my first built kit, a telemaster 40.. all the time i spent building, covering, and then showing it off to friends and family. and all the compliments of a good job and etc.. Then i was practicing taxiing, and it caught some air, next i knew it was 30+ feet in the air, so i made a newby mistake and cut power, it stalled and nosed dived almost in the same fashion.. Like i said in the post on you tube. i laughed pretty hard, but the cut was deep...

How exactly is that funny. The fact that it could have hit those people isn't very funny. Unless you twisted and mad at someone.
You lose.

I agree whole heatedly. Complacency is what sneaks up on experienced modelers. I was at a field about a week ago with a traine and buddy box to teach a newbie. I have been flying for well over 20 years. I pu the aircraft together and then set it aside. I currently fly some very expensive aircraft so I preflight all my big birds very meticously. It came time to fly I fired up the little trainer checked thte radio and I would take it around the patch to trim it before hooking up the buddy box. I took off and next thing you know. "NO AILERONS!!" WHAT?.... I managed to milk it around with the rudder and get it on the ground safely. Took the wing off and the ailerons weren't even hooked up. OMG right in front of all my buddies. We all had a good laugh and a good lesson that complacency can get anyone. You have to laugh...You can still be safe and respect the aircraft but when one does go in you have to laugh.

I think the motor whining and sputtering for life after it hit the ground (and the danger of hitting people gone), was comical.

Wasn't that your mother?, no but I did that to one of mine, I rushed to slap the P-47 back together after stealing everything out of it over the years, the next thing I know is I push left and it keeps going right but faster, my doom was sealed at 5-6 feet off the ground. I won't ever do that again. I now take my time and recheck after every flight, you never know what might have rattled loose or broke on the last landing. So ye I did laugh, well tried, no......I didn't. It was pretty lame, I've seen better duhhs. At least none of mine are on film.

There is NOTHING FUNNY about a plane crash. If you find it funny that after all the hard work building and the pleasure of the finished plane, just to have it destroyed like that, you need to rethink your opinion.
