No such thing exists....... \

Its not a matter of IF you crash a plane, its a matter of WHEN.

The only expert to never crash is the Armchair expert.

Even the experts crash, no matter your skills there is always mechanical failure. Everyone will crash and does crash.

Very few pilots start out as experts.

What do you mean? RCG is full of "experts" that started out as experts in the hobby. I see it all the time. They never crash and are always right.

Yep, I saw a guy with 50 years in the hobby who has designed and flown many planes of his own, crash a beautiful balsa and ply Yak to splinters. He just basically tried to do too much with the plane and lost it doing a low flyby while rolling the plane.

everyone who flies knows the answer to that question

A much better question would be:

How many successful, non crash, flights IN A ROW have you had?

I have crashed, but more interestingly, I have had two non-crashes which seem strange.One was about a year ago, when I let a brushed powered glider get very down wind, I lost control and closed the throttle to let it hit the ground, it then righted itself and flew itself upwind.It was all a bit strange, I was all set to smack it into the ground to prevent collatral damage, when it gained height and returned.Another time I completely lost orietation due to darkness.The plane settled itself down (it was a heavy ic powered ww2 replica).

You are the first one ask this question since I join this forum. I guess it is not quite possible not a single crash.

Just kidding.

I've probably crashed over 100 planes.
