That is a bad photo. Not in the sense of the image, the image is phenomenal. It's bad in the sense of the moment in time it captured, very painful.

Seriously though it's a great photo and I love it.

Maybe you wouldn't have crashed if you hadn't picked up the camera to snap a pic.

This was landing, the pilot declaired a landing so I got the camera ready.
I like how you can see the alerons trying to correct the plane.

Very little damage was done, so thats a good thing.





Here is an image I got today, you can clearly see the point of impact and the fuse starting to bend.

Flew nice and stable but was nose heavy for my liking.
Its currently undergoing some major surgery getting a new cockpit like another plane I built ( Take a look at the video below)
It will also be a pusher now

For those that are interested, this is Unstable:

Fast forward the video to near the end to see Unstable finished.
Balsa Wing Covering Tips (11 min 47 sec)


Here is the style of cockpit I will change it to from another plane I have built.

That seems to be one thing speed boats are really good at.

Here's a video that I named Crash... for obvious reasons.
It's hard to see, but clicking fullscreen helps:
