    And the pilot needed to change his pants...

      Then there was the first fun fly at my current club.
      I could barely handle figure 8 laps around the field at that time... but they talked me into trying.

      Almost hit the CD (with the airplane) twice.
      Broke the back of the airplane 3 times. (glued it back together with CA and 5 min epoxy... off we go... CRUNCH!)
      FF gliders and rubber power since 1966, CL 1970-1990, RC since 1975.

      current planes from 1/2 oz to 22 lbs

        Remember to disconnect the motor battery from the ESC immediately . If you forget to disconnect, you may have an unplanned startup in the pits when you attempt to take off another model ( If you don't have Spektrum "model match")

          Disconnecting the motor battery after a crash is a smart move but it won't do anything to how the TX was last left after a crash. You still have to make sure that the throttle is lowered and for double safety, hit the throttle cut.
