ok not a pic but a (funny) little story!!
ok my dad, he bought a new trainer and was bragging how great he was going to be!!(...) well anywho, we got there and my friend brandon brought it up on its maiden, and it ran out f gas, he just glided it in, no problem(this dude is crazy at flying), then we re-fueled it and sent her back up! now brandon hands the controller to my dad(we had no trainer cord at this time) and he goes over the tree over this road and goes into a nose dive right twards the high way, so my dad practicly throws the controller at brandon, (lookin relaxed at this time some how??) pulls a back flip back over into the field and says to my dad want another go?? my dad still some how full of him self, somehow?? says sure so hes over the field this time makeing some shaky lookin circles goes into a nose dive! he paniced and pused up on the right stick(lol)!, at about half throttle, sounded fast because he was goind down spanks the ground!! the funny part was it was over a little ridge so you couldent see the plane acculy hit the ground, but you see half of the wing float up about 5 feet in the air then slowly fall back down(at this time i almost pissed my self laughing so hard, in my head of course, if it was out loud he woulda kicked my ass!), what a great day!!

the damage:a cracked motor mount 5.00$ (for ca)
broken wing 15.00$ (covering,ca,etc.)
messed up landing gear 5.00$( for new front gear)
the look on my dads face priceless

You're right-it is. It's made a hole in an aluminum roof. Somebody was doing a spin and failed to recover, ending up like this. He snapped off the muffler and tore up one wing, but he fixed soon after.

Float Plane flyin ain't for sissies


My flying club had a float plane day last weekend which was a huge success with flying from 9am till 4pm. With all that activity it was inevitable that some of the flyers came to grief. Some of the incidents that were caught on camera are recorded in my Blog here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=542271

Regards

It can be done - check this out:http://www.billhempel.com/video/whknife.wmv

Another prang - a flying buddy of mine crashed his Stryker from 300ft yesterday.
Cause was a push rod hook up on the foam in front of the servo so the elevon got stuck at full up - not pretty but repairable
