Hey, that looks like one of my better landings...

Seriously, though, that's not a bad crash at all. Being the crazy fool that I am (and also never having owned an airplane above a pound, moved here from FF) I would have tried to field repair that. Carry with you: fast and medium CA, scotch tape and one razor blade. One piece of 1/8th inch balsa sheet in the car helps too.

Open up an incision near where the break is, place it back together and hit it with fast CA. medium if the damage is too great. do a field fab on any totaled parts from 1/8th balsa. tape the incision back together and go flying again

That's hardly a damaged plane. I can still identify it as something that flew before...

Here is one to make you cry.


This is a TOC plane that was attemping a takeoff in a crosswind. It would not turn into the wind (No CR Props!) and flipped over. It is IC, and was beautiful and EVERYTHING worked!
I jusmped out of the way and it ended up where I was standing.

By the way, this topic has nothing to do with Parkflyers, so it is going over to open.

I don't think anybody can beat this crash
Ok, I'll try. Last summer I crashed both my all composite Astro 020 brushless powered FVK Corsair and my S400 powered Jim Ryan Corsair within 10 minutes of each other...



Top that.

After a 100 meters nose dive without wings. We've to dig 20 centimeters to find the motor.

Wings came 30 seconds after the crash !!!

Thanks my God this was not my plane.

My plane is currently in a small box in my garage. The crash was pretty bad, but what was worse I stumbled as I approached the plane and I stepped on it. It's amazing how much damage a size 13 boot can do to a foam aircraft.

doc, no, but I wanted to see just what it would look like. Call it sick curiousity This was the result of recovering "right" instead of "left" out of a knife edge circle and pulling "up" while inverted 20 feet off the ground at full throttle......... all this in front of a few hundred people at a full scale airshow (safe distance, of course)

Dreamer,
Now THAT looks more like the crash damage I'm used to seeing! Until you've punched in a slimer at full throttle, you don't know crash damage!

Oooh, that Hots looks bad!
