I remember this one tome at Hodges Hobbies, I was flying my new SSX and ran the battery down to cut off and flew the plane toward the pavilion and at Manta's planes. I put the plane down right in front of his plane and then jumped the SSX over it. No damage to any planes. Manta said, "Did you do that on purpose?'

Nope. Pure luck.
