An old familiar story...

We have all heard this story in some form before so I will skip the details.

Programming the radio on an electric plane , did not remove the prop or disconnect the motor like I should have. Plane goes to full throttle, prop finds something to chew on......

Oh well, atleast its not a bloody hand Pic

my deepest sympathy for you. But on the bright side the plane is replaceable a lost finger is not.
