What's your worst/best crash?

I guess another commonly asked question

I folded a wing at 300ft and became a lawn dart. Smashed the plane up to the tail but managed to repair and fly it again! I didn't even brake the prop!!! For some reason though the plane isn't as straight as it used to be

I once flew my E-LMH heli into the top of a 30' tree. I then went and shook the tree. When my heli finally came out it about hit me in the face on the way down. I then went set it on the ground and took right back off no problems.

Worst was when I crashed on the roof of the school which I fly behind. Even worse was I did this twice.

Both times I drove home, got my extension ladder, climbed up onto the roof and retrieved my plane.

I was lucky someone didn't call the police

Vonbaron,

Please tell me you at least gave it some rudder so it would spin in???

Regards,

Jeff

Hahaha! I was still trying to save it! Small chance I know. I cut power to the motor which may have at least saved the prop.

Maybe next time

Kevin.

The time that I snap rolled my Dazzler into the ground, merely because of dumbthumbs, dang it!! That was a Purdy plane.
