Great attitude! "It's OK, we can fix it" and "It will fly again" She's a keeper!

I like this one.

(4) While landing in the car will save time in loading it at the end of the day.. it's really not a recommended beginner type move..

One mistake?

- not flying at a MAAC club
- likely not flying with insurance
- no barrier between pilot and flight line
- no flight line
- child standing right behind plane at full throttle
- child wandering around

Be careful there aren't any burrs on the sticks, she might scratch a pinkie.

The wandering kid is a concern. Though his body would most likely get a minor injury, I'm not sure what a head hit might do.

Look at frames, the plane hit right wing window top, left window bottom. Might be looking for a cracked wing.

Fun police?

What if he had hit your kid instead of his car?

What he did was reckless and dangerous.

The AMA and MAAC (and the system of related flying clubs) exist to support our hobby, and to protect us. Flying outside of that umbrella is irresponsible, and I guarantee you, no major manufacturer or distributor of RC products would condone such activity as shown in that video.

If the person in that video joins our club, I will personally teach him/her to fly. As long as they break the rules and jeopardize the relationship we hobbyists have with the government and law enforcement, I will criticize as I see fit.

All valid points Michael and I cannot disagree with any of them, but don't you realise this is the humour thread? Granted it's an example of stupid flying rather than side splitting comedy, but please calm down before you raise your blood pressure too high.

BTW ians mustang, I still see no fists.
