Did you crash today?

Let's start a thread saying if you crashed today. If you did say why. Piolet error, wind, mechanical. Also, say what you broke, repair cost, if you will repair it, and if you can post a pic or vid.

Let's see where it goes.

I never admit that I crashed, keep track of how many time, or how many planes that expire.

Yesterday I was coming in for a landing, the plane bounced of the ground, and hit a fence. Only damage I think is a bent prop. $3 mistake.

Cheers,
Henry

Yep, was flying a new Common Sense RC Katana 10e (that I got a screaming deal on at a swap meet) for the 5th time, battery died off, and it glides like a rock. Landed on the wingtip, and sheared the wing clear off due to the lousy cheap plywood spar. I'm so pi$$ed off I just want to rip the rest of the airplane into confetti, I've had to work hard to stay away from it all day. Wow, I can't believe how much I just want to smash it to bits, even now.

ask your doctor about "chillzac" the once daily tablet for rc pilots struggling with BADS (broken aircraft destruction syndrome) possible side effects: nausea, projectile vomiting, explosive diarrhea, and gas.

yup, down she went

I maiden my first plane today, a sig LT40 that I built. I had taxied it a couple of times and got carried away in the moment and went for it. It was windy, and the plane was not ready for flight, I didn't verify throws or CG, just centered control surfaces and they looked OK
Very stupid, I knew it was and did it anyway. The flight lasted about 10 seconds, never really got more than 15 feet up and never leveled out. The darn fence grew or jumped up and grabbed it. It is probably repairable, good thing I made copies of the plans
