Blooper clips

I was going over all of my video clips today and found one that made me chuckle. I call it "Doomed from the beginning" Go ahead and post yours too. Try to keep it under 1 minute.

These are great. I wish I'd seen this thread earlier. I tried to fly today with 20 mph winds with my Eagle. Big mistake. The wind threw it everywhere and finally straight down. I erased the video before I saw this thread. Dag nab it!

Here's mine
magnetic tree

and the funny thing is that I was absolutely sure I was going to clear that tree. I was shocked to see it cartwheel in! It came to rest about two feet above that muddy ditch you see just before impact! No dammage done, lesson learned!

And here my engine died just secnds into the flight...

LOL Diem! That was great! Its like your flying a bomber through those trees.You got lucky for the most part of just catching small branches until the end. That last one looked like the trunk of the tree! Great videos everyone!

Corn field Crash

In my early days of RC Photos my camera and plane were not the best. This was a spectacular but lucky one

Tip stall anybody?

Hello everybody, my first post to this forum. This thread looks interesting, so here is my contribution. No damage to the wing or the keychain camera although it looks like a hard "landing" .

I went out to fly my Slow Stick but I had a very stiff neck. I should have gone to the chiropractor instead. However, I flew the ss and got it too high straight up and couldn't get my head up to look and all it took was a second or two and BOOM. I will say, it bounced and only bent the motor mount. I was actully able to straighten it and fly again.

If I was on goggles I probably would have missed the tree, for some reason with my own eyeballs just didn't see it until it was too late

How do you embed a video?
