20. Fly low and slow at the park and find out too late how high a wiener dog can jump.

21. Rinse the mud/goose poop off your Cub then go out and fly it at 20 degrees. During flight, note that the ailerons are iced up and that you are back to flying a 3 channel Cub.

(Didn't kill it but it was real dicey turning with left thumb.)

22. Paint your SC a stupid hard to see green and take out for maiden flight. Become disoriented with the planes direction and watch as it disappears behind trees cut power to half and apply a little elevator hoping for a sweet landing. Find corpse of SC at the 5th Hole of the local golf course, and realise plane went through the tree... Ask permission from Golf Course to retrieve SC then WALK entire length of Golf Course to retrieve SC corpse. Then walk all the way back with the bits and pieces.

yea. I could have done that better. Ernie and Oscar are brothers. LuLu isn't related.

31. Not listening to your own advice that you give to people on line because you're a "expert" and take off without a control surface check only to find you inadvertently reversed the rudder channel when you were copying the model to another radio......ending in a encounter with a tall pine tree with onlookers pointing at you and laughing.

33. Showing off at your new found flying site back at home with your Dad's Super Cub and miss judge the distance between you, the plane, and the powerline. While in a dive, you pull out of it at enough of a tilt that your right wing gets sliced clean off by the power line, plane rockets to the ground and wing flutters to the ground slow enough for you think about how you knew better than to fly that close to powerlines anyway.

34. with the SC sitting on the tarmac, a lipo locked and loaded, confused and trying to figure out your tx menus to reverse the aileron servos, and having a buddy walk you through it whilst talking on your cell phone (bluetooth) and inadvertantly reverse the THROTLE servo.... only to experience an unexpected, immediate and almost vertical lift off (Turnigy SK3536-1400kv) and about 5-6 seconds of frantic stick wobbling with mouth agape, before walk of shame to pick up the carnage that ensued

35. Concentrating way too hard on where the hat cam is pointing that you forget where the SC is pointing. Enjoy!

36. take off and just as the SC lifts off the ground a gust of wind hits it from the side sending it under my truck.

This was actually the second or third time out with the SC. My friend had just got his. We were at the park using the parking lot for our runway (not a problem with no one around). Our trucks were parked on one side and the tailgate was down on mine. Friend went to take off and next thing I see is it flying sideways under my tailgate. Snapped the wing in two. No other damage. It's been my clipped wing ever since!
