Well I broke my middle finger on my left hand and have it in a splint and went flying this past weekend. The first flight I took off from the ground and had a nice uneventful flight ran out my battery and brought her in for another one and this time I was going to record some video. Instead of taking off from the ground I wanted to hand launch it since my camera was attached. As soon as I let her go the transmitter slipped out of my hand due to the splint and the plane took off and headed for the closest tree. It landed in someone's back yard that had a 8' high block wall! Fortunately someone was home and let me the backyard to retrieve my plane. Other than a dinged up propeller the plane was fine but I had enough for the day and packed it up.
