Three strikes and out, 3D crash & video

Despite many years of RC experience, I sometimes drop out of the sky. Two days ago I tip stalled my glider landing on the slope and broke the fuse. That analysis is not done, but it got me thinking about an older crash and what I learned that time.

Here three mistakes cause a crash:
Sun in face
Standing directly downwind
No recovery plan/skill

Crash is at 1:40 something.

Positioning is important. Dont stand on ”your usual spot” all the time. Think about sun/wind.

Recovery: I did a lot of practice in the sim afterwards to do ”recovery actions” from any flight attitude. 3D planes basically has unlimited power, and if the nose points up you can practice punch out from inverted or knife until it is second nature.
