Pilot R/C Terms

Just post any R/C terms that you think are funny, i found this one on a site.


"Oh nooo" - hearing this term from an rc pilot usually indicates that his/her airplane isn't doing what he/she wants it to do. 'Oh nooo' soon changes into mixed swear words if the airplane's situation deteriorates.

Also found this one:

Plastic bag - the thing used to take home the pieces that was once your beloved model aircraft, before you failed to keep it airborne at the wrong moment, or didn't manage to pull off the best of landings, or tried to perform an aerobatic maneuver too close to the ground...
RC pilots who have used plastic bags can be laughed at here.

RTC - Ready To Crash. RTC models are in the throws of making unplanned air to ground contact, and nothing can be done to prevent it. Usually a result of pilot error, but never admitted to.

Never say, "I think I'll fly one more time"
Always say, "I am going to fly again"

I've Got It!!! (usually spoken rapidly several times)

Aircraft being flown has entered an unrecoverable flight condition prior to crashing.

"I thought throttle reverse made the motor spin backwards (and later figured out that it had nothing to do with the direction of the motor)

What just fell off?????
( normaly followed by an emergency landing if lucky )
We saw a few of these at our club, most with missing wheels.

Damm, I think I forgot to fasten the wing.
( heard that from a former student after a wing separated from the fuse while flying )

Pull up..
Mostly yelled by other pilots just before a plane crashes through or into a three...

"The wind got it" Usually spoken on windless days, just after your best airplane cartwheels down the runway.
That airplane is now "re-kitted"
"Wifferdill" It's what you call that maneuver that was supposed to be a big, scale-like loop, but you stalled and spun out of the top....

Did that once (not 150 miles but 30) but my plane was a SuperStar on Channel 50, and when I got to the field there were two others there, so all I had to do was borrow a TX!

And I guess today, with 2.4 gHz bind-n-fly, it would not be a problem...
