In keeping with the "fly low" theme, I sacrificed one motorbox and a Xoar 17x8 today.
Hovering a foot off the deck in 20 mph wind bit me. It started to torque roll, which is fine, but when it turned, the wind blew the tail out from underneath it. I corrected, came out inverted at <5', but I was pointed downwind. Not enough elevator to save it at that point. I had the 3 FOGs at the field hootin and hollering though! LOL
Got her glued back together now, and I'm waiting for that big brown truck to pull up and deliver a box of 3dhs goodness.

Having splintered 3 Xoar props now, I was quite surprised when I saw this one didn't fragment.

Some pics of the damages. Luckily, the whole box came off in one piece, so all it took was some splinter removal and glue.

Came across one of my old license planes from 2002, about 8 years before I got into RC!
I think it was a premonition...

Or big batteries!! But then you do have to deal with gas, and starting the engine!!

Who knows...I have been thinking about an Extreme Flight 88" Yak...maybe time to get a gasser....
