It has been a huge problem for myself,and all my friends that take this hobby VERY SERIOUS,it is more then a hobby,it is a lifestyle for us....we have a huge core group of guys that just love IMAC,3D,and Freestyle..We do ALOT of traveling going to all the big events,and do alot of noon time demos for events,and we host 2 events per year for charity ( we have raised over 30K for The Children Of Fallen Soldiers Foundation over the last 5 years,and are VERY proud of it...plus hold a youth Masters event for kids every year)...Part that kills me is,we all love everything about rc flying,we all have everything from float planes to warbirds,and everything in between.....so in the end,i think it just might be jealousy that fuels the beast....i mean really,if you are flying rc planes,things are going to happen...but for us,the guys that get there bawlz busted,we usually crash in a safe spot,cause we know where our plane is at EVERY stick movement.....I have been VERY Lucky as far as crashes go (knock on wood) so it really kills me when these guys try to get me tossed out of my home field....This video has the worst crash i have had since being in the hobby,if this gives you any idea...It is two flights put together,a practice for the noon time demo (first time flying at this field,and the winds were KICKING..just watch how i get blown down the runway..25mph gusts that day) and me crashing while flying the demo with my buddy Mike....It is VERY SAD that there are people in this hobby that start the problems that they do...JUST SAD...But for myself,i have been in it for 9 years now,and i will go about it as HARD AS I CAN tell the day i die...I just enjoy the heck out of rc flying...my only regret,is i waited tell i was 34 years old when i started
i have meet the most amazing people at events,and online......so,if anybody wants to see how dangerous of an rc pilot i am,watch this loooong video
.....and a BIG SORRY if i tapped a nerve and side tracked this thread
